Ohana Pad­dle­boards: Rus­sell Coble is a sea­soned water­man and Robert Reed a con­sum­mate crafts­man, so it only makes sense that the two life­long friends joined forces in south­ern Cal­i­for­nia in 1996 to cre­ate Ohana Pad­dle­boards. Their high-per­for­mance designs have won all the major pad­dle board races, includ­ing the World Championships.

On Her Own Breath: Did you know?

On August 23 (that’s today!), 2011, Aus­tri­an moun­taineer Ger­linde Kaltenbrun­ner sum­mit­ed K2 to become the first woman in the world to stand atop all of the four­teen 8,000-meter peaks with­out sup­ple­men­tal oxy­gen. Most climbers use oxy­gen above 8,000 meters because the human body can­not pro­duce enough hemo­glo­bin in the blood­stream to accli­ma­tize to that ele­va­tion. Var­i­ous forms of high alti­tude sick­ness set in, result­ing in dizzi­ness, extreme fatigue, rasp­ing breath, poor mus­cu­lar coor­di­na­tion, and with pro­longed expo­sure, death. For this rea­son, moun­taineers call it the “Death Zone,” and Kaltenbrun­ner entered the Death Zone six times on unsuc­cess­ful attempts on K2, which is con­sid­ered the most dif­fi­cult of the 14 peaks to climb, before her suc­cess­ful sum­mit bid.

Deep Blue Sea: Did you know? June 8 (that’s today!) is World Oceans Day. Though it has been unof­fi­cial­ly cel­e­brat­ed since Cana­da first pro­posed it at the glob­al Earth Sum­mit in 1992, the inter­na­tion­al day of recog­ni­tion and cel­e­bra­tion of our oceans was­n’t rec­og­nized by the Unit­ed Nations until 2008. It’s been offi­cial for four years now—more than enough to war­rant tak­ing a surf day today.
