Pirate Man’s latest video is his best ever. It’s taken him a while to get to a standard that most people can bear to watch, but he did it.

We just put this out and you can still pick up copies in City Surf Cardiff. FOR FREE.
Pen and paper and a million photocopier cartridges were all it took to put this together. That and a lot of networking and emailing and pulling of hair and gnashing of teeth.
