Surfrider buckles up and running!

I'm excited to say that the Surfrider Foundation liked the buckles I made for my friend so much, they have decided to include them in their product line.  Check them out here.  

If you haven't heard of the Surfrider Foundation, be sure to check out their website.  Their goal is to protect oceans, waves, and beaches worldwide.  Recent events like the Gulf oil spill and the nuclear crisis at Fukushima illustrate just how badly our oceans need protection in today's world.

The buckles pass the Surfrider Foundation's sustainability requirements, so, in addition to supporting an important cause and buying handmade, you can feel great about this product's low impact on the environment.  Here's a video of the manufacturing process:

Mmmm ... lychees!

Lychee season has started off with a bang.  This is our second lychee score this season.  Turns out there is a massive lychee farm less than 5 minutes away from our house (good excuse for a quick motorcycle ride).  I can hardly eat apples anymore after a few years down here!
