5 questions to ask when choosing a stand-up paddleboard for surfing

A.belloc Invented in Hawaii in the 1940s, stand-up paddle boarding has become especially popular in the last decade, partly because unlike surfing it can be practiced by a broad range of people of all ages and fitness levels. But while most people associate this activity with placid seas and lakes, an increasing number are using them to surf - albeit relatively mild surf, no more than one to two feet high. Most paddle boards are made of fiberglass and are ten to 12 feet long, but there…

A brief guide to flashlights & lanterns for camping

Adventure_Photo Anyone who's been camping knows how dark it gets out there at night; I have been to some campsites that I can hardly see my hand in front of my eyes. Lighting is an essential when out camping. I have been camping for over 26 years and have found that everyone should have their own flashlight and a lantern or two for the campsite itself. Nothing worse than tripping over a piece of wood for the fire and falling when you can't see a thing. I always have two or more flashlights…

  • Hi.
  • If you have an iPhone, this is pretty much something you need to have. The Backflip Iphone case. Its a kickstand that allows you set up your phone on the tray and watch a movie. Probably the best part is everyone around you being jealous.

    I use something like those Freshhangers, below. Great for storing your winter jackets, tuxedos, etc...
  • Without a doubt the best travel related purchase I've made is a new travel pillow. I gave up on others and started wrapping a blanket around my neck. Have you ever tried that? I thought I would give it another try before my flight to Hong Kong and came across the Embrace Sleep Collar. It doesn't hang on your neck like the others, but fits on the front. It was a lifesaver.
  • Have you tried Freshhangers? Great for getting extra wear out of clothes - even those exposed to cigarette smoke. It's a cover - five to a package for $14.95 - that fits over any style hanger. Put a garment on it at night and it's fresh-smelling in the morning. Takes up zip for space and weight in a bag. Works best on shirts and jackets; wish they'd come up with a long one for slacks. Find out more at www.freshhanger.com.
