My 2017 xmas list

4 Dec

It’s that period of the year again! Time to dress the Christmas tree, drink dairy free eggnog and make THE list … momma you are on!

  1. I’m into jerky big time! Love the Three Jerks Jerky, Dick Stevens jerky, Chef Cut … but I would like to make my own … I need a dehydrator not a smoker (you don’t get the right temperature). My buds at Fleishers (Fleishers Craft Butchery) advised me to get a Cabela’s dehydrator. Let’s go for the 10-tray Deluxe at $199
  2. I’m moving to NYC next January, at the peak of the winter season and coming from Florida it will be a thermal shock!! To be prepared I need the Shelburne Parka from Canada Goose ($950)
  3. Back at the office with a real desk, colleagues, coffee machine, … I need to stay active and avoid back pain with a stand up desk. The Focal Upright Locus bundle is for me ($1,969)
  4. The Pyramid 25th year anniversary edition, you know the Vans that glows in the dark!
  5. What about a Velosolution pumptrack in the backyard? I don’t have the backyard yet, so meanwhile, I’ll visit the pumtrack in Brooklyn but keep it in mind for later …
  6. What do you need in your gloves box? What’s missing home? The Survival Axe Elite of course! It’s a 30 tools in one which will help you break a windows, hammer a nail, open a can, cut the seat belt in the car … and even a blade … for only $65 (exists in 2 colors army green or black/gold).
  7. With all my urban adventures, I need my beauty sleep. To count faster the sheep, I need the SHEEX LUXURY COPPER™ features ultra-soft PRO+IONIC™ bedsheet. Those are breathable, moisture-wicking sheets to keep me cool, dry and comfortable while I’m sleeping. Cherry on the cake, be aware that the copper releases ions that may decrease oxidants in the body ($209,99 for the queen size).

Wishing you an happy holidays!

Walking on clouds 

2 Dec

… or skating on cushion?

For the past months, I’m trying to do tricks with my brand new skateboard and it hits hard on the feet, ankles and knees …

Watching the videos on YouTube to improve my style, I discovered the FP insoles which promised the almost total absorption of shocks thanks to their smart insole (impact neutralizing artificial cartilage … as they say on the package).

In no time I ordered the KingFoam insoles (7mm thick).
How does it work? The shocks are converted before reaching my body … sounds promising.
I received my smart insoles, inserted in my skate shoes (Vans Old Skool) and off I was to practice my moves (ollies, shuve it, frontside 180, …).
The technology is called arti-lage (artificial cartilage foam) which absorbs up to 90% of impact energy before it reaches the body.

The foam adapts to each step.

The absorption of shocks is far more important than any other insole on the market (check the cool test by Braille benching different insoles).

Do I like it?
YES!! and I wear them everyday. It really change the game and I keep them for walking during the day. The price is reasonable and ranges from $24,95 to $44,99 and I love the design.
PS: it works also if you don’t skate 😉
