24-7 Long Sleeve Zip Hoodie for Men and Women The 24-7 Series protects against UV exposure and fatigue. If you log countless hours in the sun, at the beach or on a boat, the relaxed fit and super breathable poly/spandex composite will keep you comfortable and protected. Good for SUP. Front zip makes it easy to take off and on.

Vans “Off The Wall� The La Costa takes Vans "Off The Wall" style and puts it on the beach, borrowing cues from our classic shoes, including the original waffle pattern grip which is featured on both the sole and footbed for a non-slip grip that can go more places than your average sandal. For ladies and men.

Del Mar The feminine Del Mar features faux leather straps and footbed linings that lend this versatile all-around flip-flop the look of a designer sandal. Ergonomic construction, a soft EVA footbed and a lighter than air reverse waffle blown rubber sole are tops in warm weather footwear comfort, too.

Cambria The stylish Cambria sandal has been designed with an eye toward the best of couture sandal looks from not just the most current styles, but from vintage high fashion as well. The strappy vegan leather top includes metal stud detailing, and the footbed features an embossed Vans logo. They are built for all-day comfort with a cushioned EVA midsole and durable rubber outsoles.


After 30 years, the FDA changed sunscreen regulations requiring companies to prove that they protect against both UVB and UVA rays and to adopt new labels designed to ease consumers' ability to choose a sunscreen. Specifically, all those broad-spectrum claims will have to be backed up. Sunscreens with a SPF of 15 or greater who pass the tests outlined by the FDA can broadcast that their formulations can help reduce the risk of skin cancer and signs of early aging. And if products don't pass the muster, they will have to display warning labels stating that they haven't proven their ability to reduce the aforementioned risks. As for SPF, it's getting capped at 50 since there is not enough scientific evidence proving that higher SPF provides more protection. "You'll never get 100 percent coverage from a sunscreen, so these changes take away the false sense of security," Ronald Moy, M.D., president of the American Academy of Dermatology told Ladies' Home Journal. In addition, companies will have to say sayonara to the terms "sweat-proof" and "water-proof" unless they pass a water resistance test. "Water resistant claims must have labeling that includes the amount of time a person can get sun protection when swimming or sweating," Janet Woodcock, MD, director of the FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, told NPR. All Vertra products were subjected to a stringent series of SPF, Very Water Resistant, and phototoxic/contact irritation/allergic reaction tests to see if they met the Foundation’s standards. The results were then reviewed by their photobiology committee, which is comprised of some the nation’s leading dermatologists and experts in their respected medical professions. Now, all Vertra products possess the Skin Cancer Foundation’s Official Seal of Recommendation. We want all consumers to be able to recognize the importance and substance behind a product that bears the Seal and to know that one can truly take comfort in the fact that they are purchasing a safe and proven product, effective in the prevention of sun-induced damage to the skin.

Surfer’s Sinusitis

Surfer’s Sinusitis is inadequately described in medical literature. Your complaints of frontal sinus pressure, post nasal drip, productive coughs, and a Jeff Spicoli’s nasal voice may puzzle your land-locked doc. One recent question posed by a reader to the surf magazine Carve tearfully described how his physician told him to stop surfing because of his recurrent sinusitis. The magazine editor recommended referral to an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist, which is excellent advice. Maybe this column can save you the trip. Do you have Surfer’s Sinusitis? To some degree all wave riders do. The Paranasal sinuses are air-filled spaces within the bones of your skull that communicate with your nasal cavity. When you duck dive or face plant, salt water enters your nose and then your Paranasal sinuses. Perhaps you remember the enormous amount of water draining from your nose at those inopportune times: the Sinusitis refers to inflammation of the sinus cavities, which are moist, hollow spaces in the bones of the skull. If the opening from a sinus cavity becomes plugged, the flow of mucus is blocked and pressure builds up, causing pain and inflammation. Meeting with the boss, while sitting in class, the cusp of romance? Thank your nasal sinuses for accumulating a little ocean with each wave. That river from your nose is embarrassing enough but there are a number of other health concerns, especially when you consider the high levels of pollution in the water. Do you have a low grade, frontal pressure that can turn into a headache as the day progresses? Your Paranasal sinuses are filled with salt water. Has that productive cough lasted for weeks? When you sleep, instead of draining out your nose the ocean water will drain back down your throat and into your lungs. This drainage can lead to bronchitis and even pneumonia. There is a more serious health concern related to Surfer’s Sinusitis, which is the entry of bacteria into your body. In January of 2001 a patient was presented to my hospital with mental status changes. His pregnant wife stated he was acting strangely and when I examined him he could barely answer my questions. This patient complained of a severe headache, nausea, vomiting and a fever. During the exam he lapsed into a coma. I remember him well in part because his brother told me he surfed the frequently polluted waters of Malibu everyday. A CT of the head noted a large frontal mass consistent with

a cerebral infection. His situation could have required emergent removal of his skull to decompress the pressure on his brain. Long story short he responded well to the antibiotics and after months of rehab, surfed another day. You may have heard about the surfer, Timmy Turner. His many successes include the 2004 Surfer Magazine Video of the Year. Mr. Turner acquired a Staphylococcus infection, which led to a CNS infection and cerebral swelling. The infection nearly took Mr. Turner’s life, although after multiple surgeries and a long recovery he recently presented at the 2006 Surfer Award ceremony. My understanding of his case is that the route of entry for the Staphylococcus infection was uncertain; the Paranasal sinuses could be the source. So what can you do? Make friends with your doctor, maybe print this article out and ask them if your symptoms fit Surfer’s Sinusitis. Maybe ask for a referral to an Ear, Nose, and Throat specialist. You can also try a few of my tricks. The first is to be aware of the previous symptoms and after a day filled with face plants or a number of duck dives take generic, over the counter Sudafed 10mg as directed (which is up to every 4 hours). Twice a day works for me. Ibuprofen 600mg will help with the headache. There are a couple more tricks for surfers who are miserable because of Surfer’s Sinusitis. Their sinusitis is more severe and frequently requires antibiotics. If this is you, discuss with your doctor your recurrent sinusitis and request a few refills of antibiotics so you can initiate treatment at the onset of your symptoms. This way you can shorten the infection and avoid the complications. And lastly, you could also wear a nose clip. Yep I wear one of these ‘Kook clips’. They are officially called by swimmers ‘competition nose clips’. I bought mine for $3.00 at swimthings.com but shop around and find the cheapest site. Purchase a few because the shipping will cost as much as the clip. Tie down the clip to your rash guard or wet suit with 6lb test fishing line. Without question, wearing a nose clip decrease the episodes of Surfer’s Sinusitis. We will discuss how to deal with the taunts in another column. Surf Safe!

How To Fix a Peeling Traction Pad Although this is usually the beginning of the end of your tail pad, it doesn't have to be. A peeling traction pad is a problem every modern surfer has been forced to confront. You’ve just forked over $30, taken every precaution to apply the darn thing properly, but a week later, the pad is coming unglued faster than Adrian De Souza after a World Tour win. Lucky for you, there’s an easy fix. According to Mark Anderson, a product manager at DaKine, in the event that a grip begins to peel, contact cement is your best friend. Here are his five steps to keeping that grip glued to your board. 1. To re-adhere the grip, you’ll want to use something called contact cement. The idea behind contact cement can be counter intuitive. Unlike most adhesives, you put the glue on both surfaces to be connected and then let the glue dry. Then, after the glue is basically dry, you put the two pieces together. 2. For the contact cement to work, you are going to have to be able to peel the pad back enough to coat the bottom of it and the corresponding area of the board somewhat neatly. Be sure to keep them from touching each other while the glue dries. 3. Like any adhesive, the areas where you are going to apply the glue need to be clean and dry. A thin layer of the original adhesive left on both the pad and the board is good, but if there are big globs of gunk on there, try to pick those off. 4. The can of cement comes with a brush, but it may be too big to be effective in a small repair. A small, cheap artist’s paintbrush might be easier for applying the adhesive—a toothpick will even work. 5. Grab the unstuck flap of the pad and peel it off as far as possible so that you can access the underside of the pad and the part of the board the pad will cover. Brush a thin layer of glue on both surfaces. Continue to hold the pad back while the glue dries, this takes around five minutes. If you touch the surface lightly and the glue lifts up when you remove you finger, it isn’t ready yet. After both surfaces have dried, simply push the pad back down on the board, and it should grip immediately.
