What does the Big Turtle Shell Bluetooth speaker, a canoe, a hammock, a roll up blanket, a fetch toy, and some slip-free shoes have in common? Besides the fact that all of that stuff is totally rad and I want them, they are all in the August 2014 issue of Men’s Journal.
If you dont believe me, check out these terrible quality scans from the mag. We may have used a potato to scan these. Probably just more of a reason to go pick up the magazine and subscribe while you are at it.
If you aren’t doing anything for the next couple of months, go to Australia and skate. Need more details, just go to the link for the North Western Skatepark Series 2014.
Even if you already have plans for the next couple of months, you should still grab your skateboard and go to Australia. Say hi to the Blonde Robot crew while you are there.
We sent Bobby and Charlie on a long plane ride from Los Angeles to Europe to man the booth at Outdoor Friedrichshafen. It’s a big outdoor sports show for Europe so naturally, we had to go.
The show went from July 15th to the 18th and apparently, was pretty good. Obviously the booth looks amazing so once the show started going, a lot of people stopped by to check out all the #stuffyouprobablywant. Not only were people loving our new Big Turtle Shell wireless speaker, they were into an authentic brand has a real lifestyle.
We make friends wherever we go. It’s amazing how root vegetables, beer, and sausage can bring strangers together. Above is Bobby, Charlie and a guy named Jovan in an extremely blurry pic.
Below is an advertisement for the Ehrlich Brothers. Unfortunately Charlie and Bobby were unable to attend.
Indeed it was glorious. Until next time Germany, auf wiedersehen.
Those Australians sure know how to party, trust us. They also know some badass stuff you probably want too. That’s why they have the Turtle Shell 2.0 Bluetooth speaker in issue 312 of their magazine; Surfing Life.
When you read the article, you might end up questioning the authors sanity or maybe even your own. That’s okay, we are cool with that.

It looks like Maxim got their hands on a Big Turtle Shell wireless speaker and liked it. No actually they loved it. In fact, they loved it so much they decided to dub it the “King of the Beach” in their July/August 2014 issue.
Obviously, this is rad. Make sure you #KingOfTheBeach whenever you are partying with the Big Turtle Shell at the beach, river, lake, or wherever else you may be.
Go find the June 2014 issue of Travel and Leisure to check out the Buckshot wireless speaker. You should also have a look at all the other gear in the issue too, so rad. If you can’t find the mag go to their website, they have a lot of travel guides and travel information and you can probably get the issue there or something.
It looks like Amy thinks that the Buckshot is rad, “The best adventure equipment takes the marriage of form and function to another level”. Thanks Amy!
Ever since our Kickstarter campaign for the Big Turtle Shell®, we have been busting our asses to get all those backers their wireless speaker. They aren’t just getting the Big Turtle Shell® (which is awesome just by itself), they are getting a case for it, a 4 pack of mounting straps, and a Calamari 3-in-1 USB cable (stretch goals, yeah!). That’s over 1500 boxes of goodness that we get to ship out. This is so rad, we can’t even explain it.
It turns out, the Big Turtle Shell® is going global in a big way. Check out all these countries that we get to ship the greatest Bluetooth speaker ever to:
United Arab Emirates
Thinking of all the music, movies, calls, and other audio that is going to be wirelessly streamed through the Big Turtle Shell® is pretty amazing. We want to say a big thank you to all the backers from Kickstarter that helped us get the Big Turtle Shell® finished. The Big Turtle Shell® is something that we have been wanting to do for a long time and thankfully, you made it happen. We had a feeling that it was some #stuffyouprobablywant.
I’ll leave you with a behind-the-scenes picture from when we filmed our Kickstarter video.
This is Eamon from Blonde Robot (a distributor in Australia). As you can see, he is pretty stoked that our Buckshot wireless speaker just won the Good Design Australia award in the consumer electronics category.
Just like Eamon, we are incredibly stoked and thank the Blond Robot team for accepting this award on our behalf. You can check out the Buckshot details on the Good Design website.
The next time you Blonde Robot guys fly in to say hello, drinks are on us.
You know about our touch-control wireless headphones the Privates, right? They use Bluetooth to connect to your device, have a built in microphone, and have a cool swipey swipey feature. Anyway, we just added some cool colors. You probably want to check those out.
I could write some more about how rad our wireless headphones are but you already clicked over to go check them out. You probably aren’t even reading this part so I could write whatever I want. But I’ll write about some more features because in this case, more is more.
We made these headphones super portable. You can fold them up. Yea, throw them in your backpack, your purse, your man-purse/murse, or in your fanny pack.
What I am trying to say, is that you have options.
Did I mention that they are wireless?
So the Privates use Bluetooth 3.0 to stream audio from your Bluetooth-enabled device. You know what they say, once you go wireless, you don’t go… back to wires. I think you are picking up what I am putting down.
The Privates are comfortable.
These headphones feel good on your dome-piece. They have super comfy ear pads and the battery lasts for 10 hours so you are good to go to listen to the 50 Shades of Grey audiobook. Don’t listen to it before a doctor visit though, trust me.
So now with these new colors and all these features you have no excuse. Remember when you were Snapchatting with your friend that you met while working on your script at the coffee shop? You said you wanted some Bluetooth headphones that matched your outfit. Boom, it just happened. Just think of the epic selfie opportunities.
