This episode touches on this past year in surfing and how professional surfing has undergone a remarkable and very unexpected evolution.

This may be a sign that I’m a difficult person to shop for… but I’m not going to overthink things (and I’m definitely not complaining) because it is time to go shopping and I know for a fact that I’m going to like every single gift I will be self
Ladies we have a movement upon us. In 2017 the outdoor and adventure apparel and gear market turned to the ladies.

In an instagram hole yesterday I came across this image yesterday. I did a little digging and the other images live on the internet.com are NICE, including a solid editorial and short from SneakersNStuff.com. Surprised that this is a Nike brand, dubbed ‘Nike ACG’ (All Conditions Gear) which is a subsidiary line that produces innovative athletic apparel and sports gear for all climates and have been around since their launch in

When looking for outdoor equipment there are endless websites to search for gear. But if you’ve ever had the pleasure of shopping for any of this equipment or apparel you know it comes with a hefty price tag.
