Let's start a newsletter!
G'day - I just want to start by saying thank you for your support! 2018 has been an amazing year for so many reasons. None of which could have happened without you. Something that has been on my mind for a while, has been to find a way to keep you all up to date with the adventures that we (includes you!) are creating. That is what this newsletter is about, spreading the froth as we like to say. Each week we will look at whats been happening, what to look forward to, talk to the team riders, look at products being developed, share our favourite recipes and reads, probably throw in some competitions for you to get involved in and hand out some discount codes and freebies basically let the good vibes roll.
Always love hearing from you so send in your ideas, stories, recipes and feedback. Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org
PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT - RATIONS TIN
You may have seen a brief flashing of these on socials. I made a small batch of these survival tins to aide the message of the functionality of our products in a cool way. To keep you doing what you must do. I love the idea of our products being used on epic adventures. If you have seen one of the tins you'll recognise the inspiration. During the last few years of my Army service, I was responsible for looking at the nutritional requirements and challenges for sustaining deployed forces and displaced people from emergency or disaster situations.
These are unique scenarios involve extreme mental and physical exertion and attention. When we are emotionally involved in what we are doing, it becomes easy to neglect our bodies. After all, health comes after survival. On the other end of the scale of emotions, when we are on surf adventures we can get caught up in the moment and lose sight in just the same way. For example, the last surf trip I went on the best day of surf was the last day!
As for the Survival Tins - I couldn't hang on to them long enough to even put them on the website. We are in the process of making more and expect to have them ready for Christmas. Stay Tuned.
Surf Meal Library
Only a few chapters in, I am finding this a fascinating read. The book follows a conversation between a professor and his pupil as they debate and discover the fundamentals of Adlerian Psychology. Already there are some really empowering messages such as our ability to control our thoughts and emotions. That we can choose to change our situations, and that all problems can be distilled into problems of interpersonal relationships. Being a Surf Mealer is not just about being an epic surfer - it is about being an epic human, That is why we will share the books we find interesting. Have any books to recommend or thoughts to share? I love discussing such topics and would be stoked to hear about the books taking your interest at the moment.
