Summary: One of the reasons I bought this pram was as it was by far the easiest pram to put up and down out of all of the ones I tried. It also fit in my Fiesta boot. I bought the full travel system including the car seat and carry cot. The car seat can be used rear facing up to 13kg so will do my daughter until she is over the age of one, which is great. I must say, in hindsight, the carrycot attachment was a waste of money.
Pros: Easy to put up and down, fits in most car boots, looks stylish
Excerpt: Have had my Surf for 6 months now and I love it as does my daughter! We used the cot attachment from birth, which was fantastic, being a September baby it has kept her warm, cosy and protected from the elements all through the winter. She has just gone in to the push chair seat, which is lovely for her even when reclined right back she can still see everything which she loves, shes a very nosey baby, she is nice and secure and the foot muff is lovely and soft and fleecy!
Excerpt: I am going to write this review as When me and my wife were choosing a pram we found it very confusing and relied on sites like this for opinions. We are proud owners of a silver cross surf bought from a local independent retailer and I hope to help you first time mums and dads who, like me, hadn't a clue what was going on! The pram itself is stylish, modern and very well built.
Excerpt: I bought this pram 12 weeks ago. I had a Silver Cross 4D before and loved it so thought I'd give this one a try. Although quite expensive, the Surf looks great, is light to handle, fits easily in my boot and is easy to fold up once you get the hang of it. I bought the carry cot too for my baby to sleep in during the day when she was down stairs and to lie flat when tiny as when she was in the normal infants part of the pram she looked like she might fall out.
Excerpt: I have now been using this pram for the last two months we purchased this from mothercare who will price match online prices. We also purchased the seperate carrycot attachment which was been a great buy we have used this everyday as a place for Sebastian to sleep downstairs and taken it with us when we have been to visit family/friends. The fleecey baby nest is super comfortable and cosy and can be easily taken off and washed by hand.

Excerpt: I have just bought this and the additional carrycot as a few retail websites said the carrycot was suitable for overnight sleeping. I have contacted silvercross since and now found that they absolutely DO NOT recommend the carrycot for overnight sleeping. Just thought i would let people know. I am keeping the pram though as I love it but sending the carrycot back as i bought it for overnight trips to granny's!

Excerpt: We found this pram after reading all the reviews on this website and ordered it online as we couldn't find it in store. We couldn't be happier and feel very smug... it's excellent value for money as the cost includes all the accessories you could need. It looks great and goes completely flat so no need to purchase the carrycot.

Excerpt: We love this travel system and had lots of positive comments from family and friends. Great for walks, including snow, wet weather and wooded paths. Like others have said there is not a lot of room for shopping even with the basket but this is the only downside we have found so far. Great colour options too.
