Body Glove “Rocket” SUP
I know, SUPing is lame and they aggravate the hell out of people but I'm not one of "those" guys. You'll never see me at a congested hogging waves and trying to surf it like a shortboard. I'm more of a cruise out to the kelp beds with a fishing pole and six-pack kinda guy. There's no better way to access these gardens of Eden than on a SUP or kayak. Body Glove's "Rocket" SUP is 11' long and 30" wide making it nice and stable as well as fast. It's made out of plastic, is hollow (making it light), and nearly indestructible which means you can loan it to your father in law without fear of him thrashing it.--JC
Electric "Small Block" Wheelie Bag
With a few trips coming up, I'm looking to upgrade my luggage--my old shit is super blown. While it's easy to spot the weathered pile of canvas that is my current luggage on a baggage carousel, I'd like to be rocking some slick new gear like this roller bag from Electric. The best part about bags this size is that you can stuff a ton of stuff in it, yet it's still small enough to carry on board. The other bonus is that none of those tourists coming back from 7-days in Waikiki are going to have anything even close to as cool as this spinning around the carousel.--JC
Hayden Shapes "Shred Sled"
I'll admit it, the only reason I want one of these hybrid shortboard/fish models is because my brother was surfing better than me on it last summer. I'm not afraid to admit that it makes me mad when he surfs better than me. That said, if I had this futuristic looking sled under my feet rigged up in quad formation I could for sure rip him. From what I saw, these things fly down the line and turn on a dime. Meant to be ridden 4-5 inches shorter than your standard shortboard, I'd go with the 5'10" x 19 ¼" model with a quad setup.
