Gruff Rhys and Y Niwl were inundated by Surf themed memorabilia on their recent tour in the U of K.
Having signed the Surf Pledge at the start of the tour, the first surfboard arrived in Liverpool, whilst shows in Bristol, Cambridge and London all featured plastic Palm trees that measured up to the 2 meter plus requisite.
