Gear Review: Virus Aquatic Performance V2 Airprene Compression Tech Shorts

I'm guessing the folks at Virus might have heard about my OC wardrobe malfunction of late. 'Cause not too long after that rather gripping experience, these shorts arrived in the mail for me to test. Where have they been all my paddling life?? Now, make no...

View from the Back: Cold Weather Paddle Gear

Winter 2012-2013 marks my third winter of stand up paddling. I think I'm finally getting the hang of my gear. Granted, the longer paddling is around, the more stuff people come up with for us to use. I'm kind of a gearhead, too. Not...

Super Shop Shirts!

Stand Up Outfitters
When I travel, I enjoy picking up shirts from the shops that I visit. Best case scenario? They have a cool design or catch phrase that's unique to the shop on a nice, soft shirt that won't give me a rash. I am, like...

Kit Review: Localish Digi Camo Band Leggings

Localish Leggings
Localish Leggings Ah, Fall and Winter! Time to get the tights and other cold weather paddling gear out. But, if you live in a place where the temperatures are extremely changeable and you need something to get you through the in-between season, when it's not warm...

Kathy Summers (paddlDC) demonstrates the ultra light, highly breathable dry suit, SUPSKIN Diabolo Race Review in a very cold 36 degree DC. I was waiting for her to take the plunge, but props for going in as deep as she did. The only thing I...

Go Because You Can: Monster & Sea

There's this t-shirt that The Mullet always wears. It has a sea monster horse dragony thing on it and it says "GO BECAUSE YOU CAN." I asked him about it one day and he said, "Oh this? I saw them on Instagram and I liked...

What Not to Wear (While Paddleboarding)

Hopefully Stacy and Clinton from What Not to Wear will never show up at my house with a camera. I guess being a freelancer means the only "coworker" who could turn me in is my dog, and she likes to go naked, anyway, so...

Gear Review: O’Neill Hyperfreak Wetsuit

The Surprising O’Neill Hyperfreak Wetsuit This is a review I never in a million years would have expected to write. If you know me at all, or have followed my posts here on the Mullet, you know I have always bemoaned the advent of neoprene season....

Gear Review: Virus International Women’s Lunar Active Tech Pant

Virus Lunar
Virus International, you had me with a stretchy pocket on the thigh of your  LUNAR Active Tech Pant.  That one little detail is huge. Brilliant.  How many times have I wanted a place to quickly stash my keys, wallet or phone while loading boards,...

Gear Review Redux: Another Look at a Classic – Bluesmiths Kanaha Shirt

Bluesmiths Kanaha
Three years ago, Cousin Mullet extolled upon the Mullet Nation the virtues of the Kanaha long sleeved paddle shirt from Maui-based Bluesmiths. But, after spending nearly three weeks just about living in one, I am compelled to take another look at it.  In three...

Gear Review: Surf-Fur WaterParka

The last couple of weeks here in North Carolina have definitely been Autumnal. Leaves are changing, even falling, there’s a pleasant lack of humidity in the air, the nights have dipped into the 40’s. And most sadly, my local lake temp has dipped below...

Dryrobe: The Surfer’s Changing Snuggy

Dryrobe is easily one of the best things I saw at Surf Expo. It reminds me of the sideline jackets we had in high-school football. I have been looking on eBay on occasion for one, but never found one. I was standing in line...

Summer Trends: Introducing the Jeado

Thanks to Peter Maguire for directing me to this Instinct article on the Jeado... "It is like eating a bag of chips in church. Everyone looks over at you with disgust, but deep down they want some too." lol Buy them here and no, we make...

Art of the Paddle

One thing that I think is pretty cool is seeing the different graphic designs that paddle-related businesses come up with. (Wow, that's a clunky sentence, but you know what I mean.) Of course, function is paramount, but it doesn't hurt to have something pretty...

Gear Review: WetSox Gloves Gen II

WetSox Gen II Gloves One Purpose Before we go any farther, let me be perfectly clear: these glove are NOT meant to add warmth to your paddling gloves.  If that’s what you are expecting, you will likely be disappointed.  WetSox socks and gloves have one...

Greetings Mullettes! (Yeah, ladies, I'm talking to you!) I asked Kim Reilly to write us an article about the new swimwear line she's repping because it looks awesome. Everything is fully custom--the fit, the shapes, the prints and colors, etc. She's going to do...

Gear Review: Wetsox Split Toe Therms

Oh Winter.  How I love you so.  Let me count the ways. Not. One of the worst things about winter paddling - cold weather paddling -  that is to say paddling when the water temperature drops below, oh, I don't know, 68- is neoprene.  Now, I...

Gear Review: Season 5 Boot Liner

If you want to be successful, you have to start at the bottom and work your way to the top. This adage applies to sup training as well. As the seasons change and the temperatures start to fall, the challenge to log water time often...

Freewaters Mens Charger Sandals

I love the texture on the Therm-a-Rest footbed. I'm actually more comfortable walking around in the sandals at home than in my bare feet. The soles are flexible, water and sand flow off and out of them, so they don't just collect dirt in...

Quickblade VIRUS Aiflex Shorts

What I like: The 4-way stretch means you can knee-paddle, do high-kicks if you are a Rockette, or if you buy them too small, can bend over to pick up your board without splitting a seam. They are true to size. I am what I am....
