I was first drawn to this pushchair because of the obvious good looks. Yes, it is still a pushchair I am talking about. Anyone who is a member of Facebook or any mums' forum, will know the amount of vigorous testing that goes in to 'Pram shopping.' After good looks I really liked the fact that it could turn into a rear-facing pushchair. I had seen so many contented looking babies in rear-facing pushchairs staring in to their mother's eyes that I couldn't wait to get my 16 month old in one. Fast-forward to when I get this pushchair and I was sadly disappointed; my son absolutely hated being rear-facing. It's a wonder I don't develop a complex - I mean why wouldn't he want to look at my face lol. But that was the absolutely wonderful thing about this pushchair - I hadn't lost anything because I could simply turn the pushchair around to be a forward-facing pushchair. He absolutely loved this pushchair then. I think the fact that he is an older baby means that he no longer wants to stare in to my face but wants to keep in touch with nature and his surroundings. After all the big wide world is fascinating! The rear-facing is probably more suited for younger babies but I was so glad that I had the option of switching the pushchair around.
And I get tons of comments about what a lovely looking pushchair it is! Best of all my son loves it and can't wait to get in and pull the safety bar over him. I am totally safe in the knowledge that if he was to have a tumble in the pushchair it gives such a lot of protection.

As for the wheels, even my aircraft engineer husband was highly impressed with them. Surf is the world's first pushchair to use magnesium alloy castings. It's over one third lighter than aluminium and a dream to push your baby along on!
