Friday, October 29th, 2010
Travelling with a surfboard has never been easy. It’s expensive and you might get two pieces of a surfboard in the end. That’s why Philippe Joubert started a Rentasurfboard.com. This website offers unique services for surfers who travel. You can reserve in advance a quality surfboard, longboard or SUP for your chosen destination.

Surfers simply have to choose from the list of boards available in the destination, reserve the actual board you want to ride then pick it from the hire centre when you arrive, or even have it delivered in your hotel. There are no extra costs compared to hiring on site.

 

Rentasurfboard.com is already present in Australia, Brazil, Central America, Hawaii, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Europe, Caribbean islands, North Africa and new destinations are opened every week.

Old School Skateboarding 1981

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

 

Take a step back in time and witness some classic old school moves from the early 80s. Enjoy the skateboarding styling of Duane Peters, Steve Alba and Mickey Alba. This video really takes me back to a time when punk was all the rage and the music was way better than today. It’s always fun to watch old school skateboarding videos and see how much the tricks and styles have changed over the decades. Enjoy!

Learn about the entire history of bodyboarding

 

Can you imagine how bodyboarding started 40 years ago? Were the body boards heavy? What were they made of? What was their size? The history of bodyboarding gave birth to an online museum. The fantastic idea was brought to the surface by Chris Stroh, a passionate Australian photographer. “The reason for making this site is to try and preserve a bit of bodyboarding history and reflect back on the glory days of the sport, classic moments, influential people and the riders who made it happen throughout the decades.”, Stroh writes.

 

Bodyboardmuseum.com.au is a very important piece of history of all boogie lovers. You can visit the lives of the first stars, the images of the first modern boards, the early competitions and the first clothing companies.

 

Tom Morey is considered to be the father of modern bodyboarding. We hope Chris Stroh will keep busy adding quality content from all over the world to Bodyboardmuseum.com.au.

Jason McCaffrey, winner of the 2009 Weymouth Speed Week, has broken his neck in four places but was sent home with only painkillers, by doctors of the Dorset County Hospital, Dorchester, UK.

 

The kiteboarding champion had a serious accident in Portland Harbour, but the hospital professionals said he hadn’t broken bones. Three days later, McCaffrey couldn’t handle the pain and the four broken vertebrae and a cracked sternum were only detected at the Royal Victoria Hospital, in Ireland.

 

The 38-year-old European kitesurfing star has already undergone delicatesurgery to get him back to full recovery. Jason McCaffrey was kiteboarding when his board strap broke. During the accident his chin cracked the sternum and the injuries followed. Source: http://surfertoday.com
