#FPF The Return of The King

You must first be a Prince to become a King(Pun highly intended). In the tennis world which is far different from Middle Earth there was a brand who stood tall among others. Years passed and slowly it fell behind. That time has ended, now it’s the dawn of a new beginning. With release of the new Textreme Racquets, Prince is poised to sit along with the current leading tennis brands.

Houston, We Have A Champion

Jack Sock has won his first ATP championship in Houston.The name may be familiar from his Wimbledon doubles win with Vasek Pospisil last year. The 22 year old was off to a little rough start this season, now it seems that things are coming together. He defeated Sam Querrey in the Fayez Sarofim & Co. U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championship final this past Sunday 7-6, 7-2. He also managed to defeat higher ranked players en route to his title last week. Tennis Now caught up with him after his win to ask the hard questions that I always wanted to ask champions.

Tennis Tuesday; Head Meet and Greet

It pays to be active on YouTube. Francesco Nguyen posted a video of him playing with a Head Graphene Speed racquet and soon found that Head had posted a comment for him to review that video. So he did, attached it and sent it away(Heads’ Upgrade Your Game Contest). Next thing you know he’s on a court waiting to meet one of today’s hottest tennis stars Novac Djokovic. Head was nice enough to put together a quick video of the two meeting and getting a quick game in where Francesco actually aced Novac. It’s so great to see big name athletes treat people as people and still have a great time. Here’s the video;

and here’s the tricky ace;

Gaper Fools!

I know Gaper day was a couple of weeks ago. April 1st for those who are new to this hip jargon. It’s a day for people to have silly fun on the mountain traditionally wearing silly outfits and just having a good time. Here is Copper Mountains’ Gaper Day festivities. It’s not everyday you see a taco coming down the slopes. But who am I to judge? Taco’s are awesome! Edit originally posted by ATATfilms YouTube channel.

#FPF Paddle Out Bruh!

This. Is. Happening!

Coming soon we’ll be carrying the Bote Breeze 11′ inflatable paddle board.
2015-11-breeze-specs_546_590xauto

This board is perfect for the adventurer who doesn’t have the space to store a full size board in their home or car but want to be able to hit the water when they want. It comes in a backpack. A backpack! How rad is that to throw a paddle board into your trunk then onto your back and next thing you know you’re on the water. No need to worry about carrying a big board from your car to a loading area, just drop and go. There are many advantages of using an inflatable board over a standard fiberglass board. This one in particular is a beefy PVC military grade skin body at 6″ thick you can literally have someone at the nose of the board and try to fold it to capsize you to no avail. This board will not crease like some others out there. We will be carrying this in store soon and if you like you could be order one now so that when the weather starts cooperating you’ll be the first one out! *cough, cough* sick day anyone?!

Here’s the Veggies;

Dimensions 11′ x 32″ x 6″
Weight 26 lbs (No Gear)
Core Compressed Air
Stringer Stringerless
Capacity Max Weight – 350 lbs
Skin Military Grade PVC
