Fishing involves more than just a rod. Once you catch the fish the real work begins. The Kombo Tool can help as it is four tools in one. It features a bonker, a filet knife, a scooper and a sharpener. It is made from high grade plastic so it won’t sink to the depths of a lake or ocean if dropped in the water, while the stainless steel filet knife can endure some tough love.

We all know the story of Paul Revere but what would the patriot have done if the British had the Waveskate? This is a hybrid surfboard/skateboard that works on both the waves and the pavement. Developed in San Diego – where there is the right weather for skating and surfing – the board can quickly transform from road ready deck to water worthy board.
Waveskate inventor and former pro skater Yancey Meyer is now taking his concept to Kickstarter to raise funding to make it a reality. Video after the jump
Fishing rods are a lot like shoes – one size does not fit all. But Terry L. Manely thought otherwise, and he’s created the Multifunctional Rod Foundation (MRF) System – a.k.a. the “Adjust-A-Butt” – which allows users to adjust the length of the fishing rod on the fly. The rods are aimed at all anglers and the company has more than 60 different models that can even help catch the big one. Video after the jump
Imagine loading up the car with all the stuff you could need and then hitting the water in a lightweight boat – but needing no trailer to do so. That’s because the Boatpack is actually an Acrylic-capped ABS plastic car roof box that can hold up to 650 Liters of camping gear, and then can become a boat, complete with wooden seat and folding oars.
It can pack a boatload of stuff and be a boat to boot.
We’ve seen a serious movement in providing electrical power for bicycles, and now the Mokai Motorized Kayak is bringing the juice to personal watercraft. The kayaks are powered by a 4-stroke Subaru EX21 electric start engine that is couple with the proprietary jet drive.
The Mokai Motorized Kayaks are good to get those places where paddling just won’t do, allowing users to reach remote camping sites, fish or hunt down stream. With this kayak you could find yourself up the river without a paddle and that wouldn’t be a problem.
Starting a new business can be all consuming, and often times those who do start a business put their heart and soul into it and that means missing out on the better things in life. But for Ryan Mets, one of the founders of Boardcave, he is ready to ride the wave. His company has new patent pending technology that could challenge the factory-made surfboards that are common in the Australian market.
Instead his online business, which recently went live after two years in development, now allows surfers to order custom-made surfboards made by Australian shapers directly from the website. The Boardcave site allows surfers to compare what various surfboard shapers have in mind and thus get a very personalized and customized board to hit the waves.
A lot of fitness equipment is something that might perform well, but doesn’t look all that good. The Swami Surfboards are those rare examples where form and function simply come together. These boards feature highly-polished resin finishes that will look good in the water or at your home.
Classic Accessories makes many interesting products, including inflatable pontoon boats. We’ve seen various efforts to fold up a boat, but the Colorado Boat blows the competition out of the water, as it folds and deflates for easy storage and transport and can be quickly inflated for the next great water adventure.
The iPod Shuffle can let you take your favorite tunes a lot of places, and now Underwater Audio is letting that include the pool. The company has provided a waterproofing process to the sleek portable music player, which allows it get wet without stopping the music.
The unit can be pair with the company’s Swimbuds, which are 100 percent waterproof headphones, so these durable headphones can handle water and more. These extra-short cord ensures you won’t get tangled while swimming. With this winning combo you’ll never have to miss a beat.
When we think of the Everest Isles that patch of land at the end of the film Waterworld comes to mind. After all the highest peaks on Earth were the only dry land. Perhaps that is where the company got its name from, but regardless the new Mayol swim trunks are the sort that would be perfect in Waterworld or just a trip to the beach.
These are made of abrasion-resistant (good for fighting those sea faring badguys), and quick-drying Schoeller Dynamic fabric – because even a man of the sea doesn’t want to walk around in wet trunks all day. The Mayol offers color matched, non corrosive Riri Décore UV resistant zippers and a solid fiberglass and titanium “Sub Mariner” pull.
It also features a side pocket on each hip with the left sized one specially designed to house a waterproof Seal Line cell phone case. This can come in handy for storing that map to Mount Everest (which we know was on the girl’s head the whole time). To get a pair set sail over to the Everest Isles.
Want a little extra assurance that your waterproof case will stand up to its promise? LifeProof is so sure that its iPad and iPhone cases will keep your device safe that it sells extra protection; the company will guarantee its case for one year by offering a one-time repair or replacement of the device.

For those with rivers of gold the McLellan Jacobs – the America’s Cup boat builders – carbon fiber-hulled Kayak 1 might just be the best way to row downstream. It features teak and ash timber detailing that gives this kayak a true sense of style. Of course the owners won’t be able to take a guest for a spin in it, as it is a single person boat. But for those few who could likely afford it why would they really want to share the thrill.
Protecting the environment and finding new uses for old things shouldn’t be rare, it should be commonplace and that’s just what Rareform Surfboard Bags are looking to do. We first heard about this company last fall, and now it has gone from concept to reality. The Los Angeles business is up and running and with surf season’s waves picking up we decided it was time to remind our readers about this company.
Rareform is a company that upcycles used products – in this case vinyl often reclaimed from billboards – and this makes each of its surfboard bags totally unique. These are made of UV-, hat-, water and mildew-resistant tarpaulin along with a quarter inch of foam padding so the board inside will be protected. The bags feature a mesh interior pocket, plus a 600D polyester nose protection, and even come with a removable shoulder strap. We expect these Rareform bags to be commonplace very soon.
