Beach beats, painted paddles, steamy reads, and an ombre longboard are just some of the key ingredients to serene but spirited summer days.

02 Paint and Paddle


Beach Beats Beats at the beach always add up to a win. One point if your tunes are totally waterproof, two if the sound is pristine, three if the speaker can sustain a whole day (and night) among the surf and sand. With a fiber-reinforced resin shell and durable waterproof covering, the Fugoo Style Bluetooth speaker will survive even the wettest beach or pool days. With a 360-degree premium sound experience and a 40-hour battery life, your party will be bumping and thumping around the clock. 2.1 inches x 6.5 inches x 2.6 inches. $179.99.




If your summer season includes lazing at a lake retreat, consider these artisan-painted paddles as a darling and daring way to personalize a rented canoe (or to brighten the walls of your cabin). Each paddle is crafted from a laminated combination of western red cedar, aspen, and black walnut, glazed with a durable varnish dip and hand-painted on a made-to-order basis. The elegant blade shape glides gracefully in and out of the water for a serene and sauntering stroke. Lack a canoe? Stay tuned, as Sanborn Canoe Company will debut their namesake product very soon. Length: 58 inches; blade: 5 inches x 26 inches. $180. Here’s Looking at You Capture the whimsy of a summer fling with this flirtatious woven tote. Crafted from natural woven straw and white rafia, the Wink Basket Tote is a breeze to carry and roomy to pack. An interior leather zip pocket keeps your valuables in order while sporty bungee handles add a spunky touch. Whether you whisk it to the beach, the farmers’ market, or yoga class, this bag spreads more good vibes than its namesake emoji ever could. 11.5 inches (H) x 22.0 inches topline (W)/13.0 inches baseline (W) x 5.5 inches (D); 4 inches handle drop. $795.

Making Waves If you venture to the Rockaways, Long Beach, or Fire Island, you’re sure to see waves of wave chasers. With its artistic ebony dip-dyed stain, sublimely crafted Port Orford cedar body, glassed-in fin, and custom titanium leash cup, the Octovo Longboard is made for carving real waves. It also comes with a tailored carrying bag, complete with UV- and shockresistant material, temperature insulation, and luxe touches like fine leather trim and an ergonomic shoulder strap. Longboards, like this one, are best for beginners. But if you can’t hang ten, hang the Octovo for decoration instead. 108 inches x 22-5/8 inches x 2-7/8 inches. $3,600.
