The Body Glove crew goes Outrigger Paddling in Hawaii!

Taking a break from surfing, Body Glove's Matt Pagan caught some waves on a four-man outrigger at Tong's outside the Outrigger Canoe Club on O'ahu. Enjoying the ride and helping paddle was Kayce Mathess, Jenna Meistrell, Mark Paaluhi and steerman Stein Metzger.

Any Hand, Any Where

If your driving south bound on PCH in Hermosa Beach you'll see the crossing guard with his hand. When he's not helping people cross the street he has his hand on waving to traffic as they pass by. If you see him and he waves to you give him a honk in return!
