Monday mornings in the office are always busy ones as everyone catches up after the weekend and talks about what they all got up to. It was a great one for the team at HQ - here in Devon we were treated to some stunning sunshine and a weekend of fun waves - perfect #dryrobeterritory.
There was plenty of awesome things going on elsewhere, so check out our weekly round up below! We always like to keep up to date with what everyone is getting up to - so remember to use the hashtags #dryrobe and #dryrobeterritory for a chance to feature here or on dryrobe social media!
dryrobe ambassador Jonathan Albon continued his incredible year by storming his way to first place in the Final Toughest event of the year in Gothenburg, Sweden.
As this was the grand final of the Toughest tour the race began with a chase start, meaning Jon began with a 20 second lead over the rest of the pack. Continuing the form that has already seen him claim the title of Skyrunning Extreme World Champion this year, he confidently took the win in Gothenburg - extending his unbeaten record at every Toughest event he has entered even further.
Next up for Jon is the OCR World Championships - taking place in Canada next weekend. After winning the event for the last 3 years in a row he'll be strong favourite to claim the title again in 2017 - watch this space.
It wasn't all perfect weather in the UK this weekend - the annual Jesus Longboard Classic was held in Polzeath, Cornwall and the first day greeted competitors with rainy skies. Day 2 cleared up nicely though and dryrobe ambassador Ben Howey styled his way to 1st place.
In North Wales an intrepid group of 200 swimmers took to the water for the pioneer year of a brand new event from the Outdoor Swimming Society - The Barmouth Hurly Burly. The swim was held on an incoming tide - the 10K distance being completed in just under an hour and a half by some - that's fast!
There's some stunning images appearing from this year's event - thanks for this one @theswimshed.
We often get sent some awesome pictures - here's one of our favourites from this weekend - James Heslington from Bournemouth who swam the English Channel to raise funds for the Wave Project, congratulations James.
The GoPro dryrobes were out on the road again with @elliotharper91 - "GoPro team always squadding the hardest. Believe it!"
