Agenda Long Beach 2014

We went to Agenda in Long Beach again. We have a booth every year and it’s always a good time. Luckily we had Ryan Hackbarth with us this time to take these photos.

What is not shown is how we ended up on someone’s boat in Shoreline village. Nothing special, just drank some beers and discussed business stuff. So exciting.

See you next year Agenda.

The Big Turtle Shell in Mens Journal

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.

“Strange Rumblings in Shangria LA”

Globe Surf movies are always pushing the envelope, and this super-16mm film full of waves and babes blew my mind.  The surf world is always one step ahead of the game. trailer:

Outdoor Tech at OutDoor Friedrichshafen in Germany

Outdoor Friedrichshafen 2014

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.

Bobby, Charlie, Jovan

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.

Surfing Life Magazine Gives the Turtle Shell Love

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.

Maxim calls the Big Turtle Shell The King of the Beach

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.

Buckshot Wireless Speaker in Travel and Leisure June 2014

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!

Global Domination for the Big Turtle Shell

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:

Australia
Austria

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.
