The Client

We all know that the South West is home to some of the best beaches and surfing not only in the UK but also across the world.

With great beaches come great surfers.

At the age of 16 Rhys Barfield has been Welsh Champion for three consecutive years, represented Team GB at the Junior World Championships in Ecuador and amassed 19 top three finishes in competitions across the globe.

His sponsors include international brands such as FCS Fins, Carve Eyewear and surfing superpower Quiksilver with whom he has been a Team Rider since the tender age of 11.

Rhys has a big future in the sport.

The brief

Rhys wanted a website that was going to be able to support his growing reputation and surfing career.

He’s working with some great sponsors so he was keen to showcase them as well as his own surfing efforts.  Combine this with some of the amazing local photography taken of Rhys in action and a site that looked as good as the surfing on it was a key to this project.

He regularly produces videos of his surfing from around the world so he wanted an area where he could feature these and keep people up to date with his travels.

Throw the ability to seamlessly integrate with his social media accounts into this mix and you’ll have a full picture of what we were trying to achieve.

The Result

Surfing is an incredibly visual sport so we wanted this site to look nothing short of great.

To enhance the photography and maximise the impact throughout we adopted a single page approach; when you visit the home page you’ll see full screen local photography of Rhys surfing and it keeps on getting better from there.

Navigate down and you’ll see we’ve tried to tell a story; who Rhys is, where he’s been, his recent results, photos and video.

The site is a showcase but we didn’t want it to be isolated from his other activity.  He’s regularly on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook so we’ve included and integrated these throughout the site in order to harness the power of social media.

This site will of course be looking great on all devices including tablets and mobiles.

We hope you enjoy it!
