Just recieved this from newquays finest and must say, I took one look at their site and signed up fistral surf school to it as I think james will do really well providing potential visitors to Newquay, Cornwall with much needed information.
The surf section of www.newquaysfinest.co.uk includes local surf conditions and weather forecasts, webcam images refreshed every hour, events calendar and contest results, and a surfing gallery, with local photographers submitting new shots every month and website visitors invited to vote for the best.
The section also comprehensively introduces Cornwall’s specialist surf photographers, local surf schools and shops, surfboard shapers and repairers plus magazines. The website’s visitors also have the chance to win a custom shaped Adams Surfboard.
The new website has been created by James Keith, head of local web design company Quick Hits. Previously a marketing manager with a small Hampshire IT company, he moved to Newquay five years ago, drawn by its surf and Cornwall’s more appealing lifestyle.
A highlight of the website is James’ virtual tour of Newquay, which he claims has few if any equals among European resorts for its depth and quality.
He has combined cutting-edge software with his own photographic talent to create the 15-minute tour covering five miles, hailing “Virtual Newquay” as a revolutionary new way to explore the area.
“‘Virtual Newquay’ provides visitors with the sort of clearer vision of the town that just wasn’t previously possible short of actually visiting the place,” he explains.
“With Newquay’s Finest, not only can you take a virtual tour of the coastline surrounding Newquay, but you can actually go into shops and businesses on the way. Fortunately, we had some good days of sunshine when I was doing the photography earlier this year, so I’ve even laid on guaranteed sunshine for the virtual visitor!”
