Boule PetanqueThe ancient Greeks are the first recorded in history to begin tossing coins as far as they could.  The Romans came along and updated the game by giving it a target.  Today, in the south of France, Petanque is played – with a chilled glass of wine in hand.  Easy to play, simply toss the small ball about 35 yards on clay or grass.  Then alternate trying to toss the big balls as close to the small one as possible.  You can knock others out – and closest gets 1 point.  If you have two closest you get 2 points.  More on the rules here.  Easy enough, and still enjoyed after thousands of years. Polished alloy set of six, comes with canvas carrying case.  $50 BUY

Warmest Parka in the WorldLooking for the warmest piece of clothing in the world?  Here it is.  The North Face’s Himalayan Suit is designed for Everest, K2…and anything close to them. It’s all down, in fact 800 fill goosedown on the body and 700 on the limbs.  Internal water bottle pockets, drop seat construction (wouldn’t want to have take the whole thing off when you have to go) and internal suspenders.  If you’re cold in this, you should probably either see a doctor or start hiking down.  $1,000 BUY

The Mavericks Surf Contest in Half Moon Bay, California has become the most watched surf contest in the world.  Covered now by NBC Sports, the purse is impressive – and it should be for riding 50 foot waves.  Surfers around the world get 24 hour notice to be at the wave at the first horn.  Invite only for contestants, but the Official Mavericks Surf Company does send out two boats and sells tickets.  If you’re not on the boat you’re stuck two miles back on shore.  Photo above was taken from the boat with no zoom lens.  See this the right way and do it at least once.  Well worth the $300 ticket.  $300 BUY

Fear not the beaches of South Africa, Australia or Northern California. Attach Shark Shield FREEDOM7 to your surfboard as a leash, to SCUBA equipment, or to a snorkel – and you will be surrounded by a protective field of electrodes. The emitted frequency goes straight to the Ampullae of Lorenzini (previously known as a “shark snout”) sending sharks into seizures, while ensuring you make it back to shore. Think of the $645 pricetag as $1 per stitch you might need without this.
