Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on Radio 105.7 - Tech from 2018 Surf Expo

It's been a cold and Icy winter in Atlanta, but Rick is here to warm things up.

He saw everything "sun and fun" at the Surf Expo in Orlando , which wrapped up last weekend.

What were some of Rick's Picks from the Surf Expo?

Have a listen:



1. 4 Ocean Bracelets
www.4Ocean.com

4Ocean has made it their mission to preserve our oceans by removing ocean trash through the purchase of their recycled bracelets. This is the promise to their customers: Remove one pound of trash from the ocean for every bracelet sold.  Just $20.
4Ocean has three different clean up methods that drive their growing trash removal:
•         The daily offshore/intracoastal cleanups led by their 7 full time captains with 4 boats out on the water every single day
•         Beach cleanups hosted worldwide
•         Working with other cleanup organizations across the world

4Ocean 2017 Milestones:
•         Removed over 250,000 pounds of trash from the ocean
•         Expanded from 2 employees to over 40
•         Hosted cleanups in 16 countries
 

2.  Body Glove Crusader
www.bodyglove.com

 
A huge stand up paddleboard.
There is no end to the SUP craze and that is a good thing. At the show, Body Glove debuted their Body Glove Crusader, a 15-foot long, 66-inch wide paddleboard, 6 inches thick, weighing 76lbs, with a max capacity of 1000lbs, good for 4-6 people. This looks like a lot of fun and will be available hopefully for summer.
 

3. Shark Eyes
www.sharkeyesusa.com

Shark Eyes is the world’s most affordable visual shark deterrent. Shark attacks have been a big problem around the world in recent years. This is a sticker for all water users who want to minimize their risk of a shark attack. Developed, and endorsed by watermen and professionals who routinely encounter sharks in the wild, the Shark Eyes decal aims to fools the shark into thinking it’s been spotted, removing the element of surprise and deterring an attack. There are different sizes and prices start around $12. This is a simple idea and solution, but a no-brainer.
 

4. Kadan Swimwear
www.kadanswimwear.com


The story here is this beautiful swimwear line is designed, marketed and ran by an 18 year old.
Kelsey Caputo graduated from high school early and is now designing and promoting her own swimwear line.
The pieces reflect a coastal living that is fresh, laid-back and stylish. Pieces range from $75 to $120, and are on sale at boutique stores dotting the Florida Keys and online at www.kadanswimwear.com.  
The capsule collection offers five styles in calypso and baby blue. She envisioned beautiful women wearing her suits having fun and feeling confident when she conceived the idea and started designing.
 
“Every line tells a story,” explains Caputo, who graduated high school early to persue her designing interests. “Mine says elegant costal living for modern women.”
 



5. O2cool Products
