Demise of the Walk­ing-Poet: Did you know? On August 8, 1818 (that’s today!), 22-year-old Eng­lish poet John Keats returned from his now-famous walk­ing tour of Eng­land and Scot­land. A few weeks pri­or, Keats had con­tract­ed an ill­ness on the Isle of Mull. Mid-way through, a doc­tor described him as “too thin and fevered to pro­ceed with the jour­ney.” The ill­ness would devel­op into tuber­cu­lo­sis and kill him three years lat­er, but not before the young writer pumped out what would become some of the most famous poems in the Eng­lish language.

The First Account of Surf­ing: Did you know? The first Euro­pean account of surf­ing was by explor­er James King, who devot­ed two full pages in his expe­di­tion jour­nal to describ­ing Hawai­ians par­tic­i­pat­ing in the activ­i­ty. Here is a very short excerpt of his 1779 account, in which he describes his ini­tial reac­tions. All spelling nuances and mis­takes are the author’s own: “On first see­ing this very dan­ger­ous diver­sion I did not con­ceive it pos­si­ble but that some of them must be dashed to mum­my against the sharp rocks, but jus before they reach the shore, if they are very near, they quit their plank, & dive under till the Surf is broke, when the piece of plank is sent many yards by the force of the Surf from the beach… The above diver­sion is only intend­ed as an amuse­ment, not a tryal of skill, & in a gen­tle swell that sets on must I con­ceive be very pleas­ant, at least they seem to feel a great plea­sure in the motion which this Exer­cise gives.”

Hap­py Sat­ur­day, Clym­bers. Hope­ful­ly you’re read­ing this on a smart­phone while rid­ing the lift up to make some late-sea­son turns. Speak­ing of, how are your gog­gles far­ing? Have they become a ver­i­ta­ble fog machine? Have they sport­ing more cracks than your Sub­aru’s wind­shield? In any case, don’t wor­ry. We’ve got a big event fea­tur­ing the top gog­gle brands today. Pick up your dream pair on the cheap. We’ve also got Salomon footwear and appar­el, Fuel­Belt run­ning acces­sories, and Gravis footwear and appar­el on the dock­et. A lit­tle some­thing for everyone.

Enjoy the week­end. We’ll catch up with you again on Mon­day. In the mean­time, here’s some more infor­ma­tion about today’s events:

Salomon: Salomon was found­ed in 1947 in the heart of the French Alps, the birth­place of mod­ern alpin­ism. Dri­ven by pas­sion for ski­ing and design inno­va­tion, Fran­cois Salomon and his son George designed and per­fect­ed many of the first mod­ern ski bind­ings. The com­pa­ny has since earned a rep­u­ta­tion for excel­lence in design­ing goods for oth­er out­door activ­i­ties, expand­ing its line to include every­thing from trail run­ning footwear to tech­ni­cal appar­el and socks. Today at The Clymb, we’re excit­ed to be offer­ing Salomon footwear and tech­ni­cal appar­el for mem­ber-exclu­sive pricing.

Fuel­Belt: When dri­ving into the back­coun­try, it’s a good idea to bring some extra fuel. The same holds true with dis­tance run­ning. Fuel­Belt designs light­weight pock­et­ed waist straps for dis­tance run­ners want­i­ng an acces­si­ble place to store water bot­tles, ener­gy gels and what­ev­er else pow­ers them to push past their lim­its. Top off with Men’s and Wom­en’s Fuel­Belt run­ning acces­sories, on sale today at The Clymb for mem­ber-exclu­sive pricing.

Gravis: Remove it from the box, slip it on and head to the beach or to the can­ti­na because casu­al is com­fort­able with Gravis footwear and appar­el. Need to get some work done while you relax? The light­weight Gravis Hood back­pack sports a lap­top sleeve and enough room for a six-pack and what­ev­er else you need to get the job done. Act now and receive mem­ber-exclu­sive pric­ing on Gravis footwear, tees, and Hood backpacks.

Gog­gles: There’s a say­ing as old as ski­ing itself, the mes­sage of which rings as true today as it did thou­sands of years ago when gog­gles were no more than a pair of pol­ished bones strung to the head by sinew: “Those who refuse to wear eye pro­tec­tion on the moun­tain won’t have a sweet pair of rac­coon eyes to show off the next day at work.” Snow gog­gle tech­nol­o­gy may have matured faster than the peo­ple who use it but that does­n’t mean you should still be hold­ing on to your Stone Age gear. Evolve with gog­gles from Spy, Optic Nerve, Elec­tric, and more, on sale today at The Clymb for mem­ber-exclu­sive pricing.

PLUS… There’s still time to save on Uclear, KAVU, COAL, Cross, Timex, Loopt­works, Teva, & Nils.

And just for fun…

Bone in the Snow: Did you know? Snow gog­gles weren’t always rain­bow-tint­ed works of mod­ern art. Invent­ed by the Inu­it peo­ple of the Arc­tic as a way to pre­vent snow blind­ness, tra­di­tion­al snow gog­gles were orig­i­nal­ly made from chunks of bone or ivory. The wear­er would shave the bone to fit, cut some slits to let in light, rub the insides down with soot, and then strap the con­trap­tion to his or her head using sinew. Awe­some­ly, DC Comics supervil­lain Cap­tain Cold wears tra­di­tion­al-style snow gog­gles to pre­vent going blind from the glare cre­at­ed by the ice beams he blasts from his cold guns (which are gen­er­al­ly aimed at Flash). In com­ic books at least, old tech­nolo­gies are always cut­ting edge. KRACKOW!

What would it take for a pro­fes­sion­al ath­lete, per­form­ing at the high­est lev­el, to take a break? SPY Pro Surfer Alex Gray shares what was behind his deci­sion to stop com­pet­ing in order to chase big­ger waves:

Also in the spir­it of fol­low­ing a less-trav­elled path, over a decade ago, graf­fi­ti artist and surf pho­tog­ra­ph­er Andrew Sar­nec­ki began design­ing and print­ing his own mini surf mag­a­zine, “South Bay.” Now, he’s tak­en his sig­na­ture tag and cre­at­ed Hip­pyTree, an eco-con­scious com­pa­ny that pro­vides qual­i­ty surf and climb­ing inspired prod­ucts to open-mind­ed indi­vid­u­als. Hip­pyTree also walks the walk in terms of sus­tain­abil­i­ty, using organ­ic and eco-friend­ly blends in their cloth­ing mate­ri­als and print­ing their cat­a­logs on recy­cled paper.

Pho­to: HippyTree
