Kitesurf­ing Teahupo’o: Did you know?

On Sep­tem­ber 14th (that’s today!), 2006, pro­fes­sion­al kitesurfers Jere­mie Eloy, Julien Sudrat, and Yan­nick Salmon gath­ered at the surf break known as Teahupo’o on the French Poly­ne­sian island of Tahi­ti. Teahupo’o loose­ly trans­lates to mean, “to sev­er the head,” and fit­ting­ly, the break pro­duces a dan­ger­ous, hol­low wave that ranges from 10–70ft. What makes the wave so dan­ger­ous is that it crash­es over a coral reef that is only 20 inch­es beneath the sur­face, pro­duc­ing a dense wave that is con­sid­ered the “heav­i­est wave” in the world. On this day the waves were in the 10ft. range and as thick at the lip as they were tall. The three kite­board­ers rode the wave to become the first kite­board­ers to ever surf Teahupo’o.

And The Horse You Rode In On: Did you know? On July 29 (that’s today!), 1776, Sil­vestre de Escalante and Fran­cis­co Dominguez, two Span­ish priests, left San­ta Fe to embark on an epic jour­ney through the South­west desert.

Mid­sum­mer Night’s Meme: Did you know? Today is the sum­mer sol­stice, the longest day of the year. For thou­sands of years, dif­fer­ent cul­tures have cel­e­brat­ed the day and passed their tra­di­tions on to future gen­er­a­tions who have tweaked it appro­pri­ate­ly to fit their needs. Most­ly their cel­e­bra­tions involved drink­ing and feast­ing and light­ing stuff on fire. Ancient pagans loved to par­ty as much as the next cul­ture. They referred to the sum­mer sol­stice as Mid­sum­mer and would cel­e­brate by build­ing gigan­tic bon­fires and get­ting drunk on mead before jump­ing through them.

Five Ten: After fin­ish­ing his MBA, Five Ten founder Charles Cole went to the last place any­one thought he could use it—Yosemite. After a slip while descend­ing El Cap, he decid­ed that climbers should have high-fric­tion rub­ber in all of their shoes. Tap­ping his engi­neer­ing back­ground, Cole invent­ed a rev­o­lu­tion­ary new rub­ber for­mu­la with increased fric­tion and dura­bil­i­ty than any­thing climbers had ever expe­ri­enced.

The hol­i­day com­mem­o­rates this day in 1953, when Fran­cis Crick, James Wat­son, and col­leagues includ­ing Ros­alind Franklin and Mau­rice Wilkins pub­lished a paper on the struc­ture of DNA in the sci­en­tif­ic jour­nal, Nature. You prob­a­bly learned a thing or two about the dou­ble helix in school. And you may have even heard about the clone Russ­ian researchers are cur­rent­ly hop­ing to bring to life using DNA from a frozen mam­moth. If they suc­ceed, you may have the desire to hunt it. That’s only nor­mal. Accord­ing to recent stud­ies, humans have at least 1–4% Nean­derthal DNA. So grab a stick and go club­bin’ for Nation­al DNA day—it’s the nat­ur­al thing to do.

Pho­to Cour­tesy of ISAORA

Greet­ings and salu­ta­tions, Clym­bers. Hope­ful­ly the week’s been good to you so far. Things are well here at Clymb HQ. The office dogs have been mel­low and the Wid­mer Broth­ers keg tastes par­tic­u­lar­ly refresh­ing this rainy week. A few slices of pie sit uneat­en on the kitchen table—an impres­sive feat of sur­vival after the ini­tial sav­agery of Mon­day’s dou­ble birth­day cel­e­bra­tion. We’d have room for the slices in the refrig­er­a­tor if it weren’t stuffed to break­ing point with for­got­ten lunch­es and var­i­ous-sized con­tain­ers of half-eat­en condi­ments. Whose condi­ments are they? And whose lunch­es? We may nev­er know. The only real cer­tain­ty today is that we’ve got some excit­ing new events to help you get over the mid-week hump.

Here’s what we’re offering:

New Bal­ance: If pres­i­den­tial can­di­dates were forced to run for high office in the lit­er­al sense (as they should be), they would want to do it wear­ing New Bal­ance run­ning shoes. With 25 per­cent of its footwear made in the US each year, New Bal­ance is proud of its claim to be the only com­pa­ny that still man­u­fac­tures ath­let­ic shoes right here in the good ol’ US of A. And with near­ly 75 years of expe­ri­ence in the per­for­mance run­ning shoe mar­ket, New Bal­ance would offer its can­di­dates a leg up on the com­pe­ti­tion. But great shoes alone don’t guar­an­tee a vic­to­ry lap. New Bal­ance also makes tech­ni­cal run­ning appar­el and acces­sories to max­i­mize per­for­mance. Today on The Clymb, we’re offer­ing a huge selec­tion of Men’s and Women’s run­ning appar­el (includ­ing tops, bot­toms, jack­ets, and more), footwear (for trail run­ning, street jog­ging, and more), acces­sories (gloves, caps, reflec­tive vests, and more), and eye­wear for mem­ber-exclu­sive pric­ing. Run for your wal­let or your fel­low Amer­i­cans will beat you to this one.

ISAORA: ISAORA is a col­li­sion of high style and extreme per­for­mance. What does that mean? If a Bent­ley could go snow­board­ing, it would wear ISAORA. If the dri­ver’s side door to that Bent­ley flew open as it was doing an invert­ed 720°, John­ny Depp, already strapped into his snow­board, would come spin­ning out and do a per­fect land­ing before tear­ing down the hill in an explo­sion of pirat­i­cal awe­some­ness. He would also be wear­ing ISAORA. Offer­ing pre­mi­um per­for­mance, supreme pro­tec­tion, and a per­fect fit, New York-based ISAORA proves that tech­ni­cal and fash­ion­able need not be mutu­al­ly exclu­sive. Show your style in Brook­lyn or Big Sky with Men’s ISAORA tech­ni­cal appar­el, avail­able today on The Clymb for mem­ber-exclu­sive pricing.

IN OTHER NEWS: Did you know? Compa­ny founder William J. Riley came up with the name “New Bal­ance” by observ­ing chick­ens in his yard. He even kept a chick­en foot on his office desk to demon­strate to cus­tomers how the chick­en’s three-clawed foot result­ed in per­fect bal­ance. Backock!

Like the beach boys said, “would­n’t it be nice?” Nice to split win­ters between Alas­ka, Utah and Col­orado, and spend sum­mers shred­ding down in Chile. Video shoot in Switzer­land? We’re there. Sure, we’d all like to ski all day and par­ty all night like the pros, but for most of us, our addic­tion to pow­der means work­ing like hell to fund the dream.

Sur­face Skis hon­ors those of us who do what­ev­er it takes to get max days on the moun­tain in their Work­ing Class Heroes series – Peo­ple like Doug Jam­bor who worked as a cook in the kitchen of a near­by resort for an entire sea­son, eat­ing for free, but bare­ly scrap­ing by so that he could ski, meet great peo­ple, and hit his first 100-day sea­son. Doug, and others,are not only acknowl­edged, but they receive a sweet care pack­age of Sur­face good­ies to show their appre­ci­a­tion. For infor­ma­tion or to sub­mit to Work­ing Class Heroes, click here.

And today you can make that hard earned dough go a lit­tle fur­ther with The Clymb hookup on Sur­face pow­der and all-moun­tain skis.

And, nes­tled deep in red­wood trees, between the inspi­ra­tion-heavy San Fran­cis­co and the inno­va­tion of Sil­i­con Val­ley, Free­wa­ters’ design stu­dio gives life to san­dals that chal­lenge the indus­try norm and strive to per­fect form, fit, and com­fort. That soli­tude inspired the studio’s name, The Shaolin Temple.

But Free­wa­ters doesn’t just take a no non­sense approach to design­ing footwear, they’re also com­mit­ted to find­ing solu­tions for the glob­al drink­ing water pan­dem­ic, doing their part to help pro­vide fresh water to the peo­ple of the world who need it the most.

We’re gear­ing up (pun total­ly intend­ed) for a fun day here at The Clymb.

When our co-founder Cec Annett tried on a pair of Hoka OneOne trail run­ning shoes at last mon­th’s OR, he was tru­ly impressed. A 2″-4″ rock trail had been cre­at­ed for test­ing pur­pos­es and Cec described the run­ning expe­ri­ence as, “It was like float­ing over it.” Don’t let the uncon­ven­tion­al style of Hoka OneOne fool you. These run­ning shoes use award-win­ning technology…

  • Lev­i­tat­ing — By using an EVA 30% soft­er and increas­ing its total vol­ume to 2.5 times that of a typ­i­cal trail run­ning shoe, they allow for more cush­ion­ing than any oth­er shoe on the mar­ket today, dis­si­pat­ing up to 80% of the shock asso­ci­at­ed with heal strik­ing when running.
  • Rolling Up — 40mm high sole design enabled to design a 13cm rock­er­ing pro­file, rep­re­sent­ing 50% of the sole length. This design allows for flu­id and nat­ur­al stride tran­si­tions, less­en­ing the move­ment of the knee by as much as 20%, increas­ing efficiency.
  • Like a Feath­er ‑15% lighter than ref­er­ence trail run­ning shoes. At 320 grams size 8UK per pair, they’ll make run­ning uphill as much fun as they make run­ning downhill.
  • Grip — With 50% more sur­face area than the typ­i­cal trail run­ning shoe, and 35% more rub­ber cram­pons, you’ve nev­er run as con­fi­dent­ly as you will in a pair of Hoka’s.
  • Sta­bil­i­ty — With a foot recessed into the mid­sole, you’ve nev­er run as con­fi­dent­ly as you will in a pair of Hoka’s.

… and are endorsed by ath­letes such as top USA trail run­ner and ultra-marathon­er Dave Mack­ey, ultra-marathon­ers Karl Meltzer, and Diana Finkel. Not to men­tion win­ning Inno­va­tion of the Year 2010 from Endurance Trails and vot­ed Edi­tor’s Choice, Best Inno­va­tion by Trail­Run­ner.

Some­times big­ger is bet­ter and Hoka OneOne are designed to help you run longer, more often, and with­out injury. And then there’s the math: 1 year, 8 coun­tries, 12 major vic­to­ries = The #1 Ultra­run­ning rac­ing shoe in the world.

You can shop an excel­lent assort­ment of these uncon­ven­tion­al, yet high­ly-inno­v­a­tive, trail run­ning shoes for men and women at up to 60% off, only on The Clymb. Click here to shop.

Also at up to 60% off,  high-qual­i­ty, high-vis­i­bil­i­ty gear, includ­ing eye­wear, vests, gloves and more from New Bal­ance. New Bal­ance dri­ves inno­va­tion to cre­ate supe­ri­or prod­ucts that ath­letes are proud to wear, and you will be too when shop our exclu­sive New Bal­ance event here.
