We all need a bit of help organising our time and remembering important dates and events, be it a diary, a year planner, a digital calendar or a calendar hung on a wall in plain view. Calendars date back to the Bronze Age, with the course of the sun and moon being used to keep time across various ancient cultures before the Romans (during the reign of Julius Caesar) reformed their calendar in 45 BC so that it was no longer dependent upon the observation of the new moon each month but instead followed an algorithm, and introduced the leap year. In 1582 the Roman Julian calendar was revised further (we now use the Gregorian calendar) following a long-term shift observed between the Julian calendar and the solar year, and it is the Gregorian calendar that we still use to this day.

We work and surf all year-round, come rain or shine, and we try to produce imagery that reflects that. As a result we now have a set of seasonal imagery that we’re very proud of, and it made sense to us to share some of our favourites in the form of a calendar so that they can be enjoyed by some of you and provide an alternative to calendars with images of the Lake District, flowers, vintage travel posters or ponies in the New Forest.

The 2016 Otter Surfboards calendar features twelve images, with space to take notes each day. There are also perforations above and below each image so that, once the month is over and you’ve turned a new leaf, you can separate the image, frame it as a print and keep on enjoying it. The calendar is printed locally on recycled paper using water-based inks. They’re available to buy now here on the Otter website for £15, and we’ll also be bringing stock with us to various events in the run-up to Christmas and the New Year.
