Superhero Surfer

A Brazilian man has hit the world headlines after surfing a 100-foot wave in Portugal, thought to be the biggest ‘ride’ on record. Carlos Burle was taking part in the Ride of the Year category in the Billabong XXL competition in Portugal, when he braved the towering slope. Onlookers clearly were astonished and enthralled at […]

Glory Hunter Football Supporters

Supporting a ‘crap’ football team and living in London isn’t easy. For me, an avid Stoke City fan, it has become harder since we were promoted to the Premiership a few seasons ago – before then no one knew who we were. When everyone was talking about the Manchester United game at the weekend, I’d […]
