Behind the scenes at the Saltrock Summer Photoshoot

Saltrock summer shoot

On a sunny North Devon morning we were excited to be joined by world champion trials biker and Saltrock Brand Ambassador Andrei Burton, ready to embark on our Saltrock summer photoshoot.

A misty start to the day

We began our adventure to Baggy Point, chasing the coast but unfortunately not the sun. As we approached Croyde we descended into a thick, lingering mist. Unsatisfied with the conditions we quickly drew up plan B, piled back into the van and headed for Crow Point where we knew we’d find the sunshine. As we approached Saunton we were welcomed by blazing blue skies and lapping waves. We knew were onto a winner – a sharp right and we were straight onto the beach.

Accompanying us on shoot we were thrilled to have local photographer Jamie Bott. We began the day wandering the beach and swirling around rock pools. Andrei wasn’t afraid to get his hands dirty, hanging off trees and throwing himself down sand dunes. Not one to be left out, photographer Jamie followed with his lens, ducking and diving between rocks and the sand.

Later in the day we were joined by the very beautiful Saltrock kids, equipped with bubble wands, buckets, spades and fishing rods. They had non-stop fun frolicking in the sea, jumping in the dunes and covering themselves head-to-toe in sand, with only a quick pit-stop for ice cream on the rocks.

Ice cream break!

Andrei put on an energetic show for the gathering crowds, bouncing between rocks on his bike, much to the delight of Saunton beach-goers!

All in all we had a picture-perfect, fun-filled day! 

A huge thank you our models Andrei and the kids, and to photographer Jamie – we can’t wait to see the shots!

Saltrock Opening Hours

Easter sun on the North Devon beaches

Its been a knockout Easter so far; the stores have been busy, the spring collections have been popular and the prospect of summer has made us all smile. We’ve seen lots of locals and visitors coming into stores, and we were so happy to see the sun come out for our holiday makers.

As we move into the summer season our stores have different opening times; some stay open late during holiday times (some beach stores until 10pm) while others stick to more regular hours and some are bound by shopping centre trading hours.

These times also change frequently to respond to customer demand where possible and are individual to each store, which makes it impossible for us to publish one single ‘Saltrock Opening Time’.

We’d hate you to be disappointed, so please check with the individual stores for opening times.

Click here for stores details – and if you’re ever unsure please call HQ on 01271 815306 for confirmation.

Hope to see you soon!
