How To Wipe Out That Midday Brain Fog

It’s an hour or two after lunch; you feel the need to grab that X Hour Energy buzz to survive the rest of the day.  You feel a slight rush of vitality…but something is still off.  You're somewhat energized, but still not yourself. There is a sort of a brain fog that envelops you. 

Tell me this isn’t you sometime during the day…

You’re off. 

You’re tired and that makes you easily annoyed. You’re having problems concentrating and a little distracted. You’re a little lost.

You know you shouldn't turn to energy drinks and supplements day after day…there's the natural energy teas and other more healthy options but those don't re-wire your whole body and mind to feel better and energized, and that's what you really need; a realistic way to feel like your natural strong, vital self. 

Brain fog apparently is a thing.  There is an answer! 

Get UP.  You need to move your body

This is the hard part. Your body wants to just sit and sink into a chair. 

Don’t give in.

Your body needs movement and your soul needs to relax and be at peace, not the other way around. Ok now what should you do? Running is a bit much, you have too much to do to come back all sweaty. Swimming would be refreshing but then you'd need to shower and it all takes too much time. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to go out and get a quick paddle boarding session? No place to go around work…

Here is an alternative:

Go Land paddling!  Land paddling is a fun way to get outside and get a quick, fun energy blast. You get on a big longboard, rather than pushing with your foot, you grab a land paddle and go!

Each stroke takes away your stress, energizes your whole body from the tips of your toes to the top of your head.  As you stroke across the streets, your mind settles down.

There is something about board riding. When you ride your troubles vanish. Your mind and soul, for an instant, connect with something deep inside of you.  Energy that has been zapped from your being starts to fill up as you paddle.  You start to feel the movement under your feet, the wind in your face, and the connection between your entire body as you paddle.  It’s truly a thing of beauty to ride. 

Whether you go out for 2 minutes or 2 miles, when you get back, you are ready to hit the day hard again. 

Kahuna Creations has created resources to get you started. Land Paddling 101 online courses are available for easy-to-learn process to get going. The learning curve is quite quick…nothing like snowboarding. Land paddling videos show the progression of the activity.

You may tell yourself, “self, I am too old to do this and I don’t want to fall”. In fact, after several user studies, the median age for a Kahuna Creations land paddling user is 44. The bulk of our users are in their 30s, 40s and 50s. With the Kahuna Creations’ land paddle, you don’t fall! Since your feet are planted securely on the longboard, your body is free to paddle and glide. If you become a bit off balance, you have that third point of contact to catch yourself. On the swing side, if you're already a board rider, having a land paddle makes inaccessible paths free to ride!

To make it easier to get rolling, here is a 45% off discount code just for you.

Go to www.kahunacreations.com and use the discount code: LINKEDIN  (USA/Canada)

Now go ride!

Jessie Graff - Hollywood Stunt Woman & American Ninja Warrior

Jessie Graff is one of the most fit people on the planet.  Jessie is a seasoned Hollywood stunt woman and has proven herself for years as one of the top American Ninja Warriors.  Jessie has been riding her Kahuna Creations Shaka Surf and Classic Big Stick for some time.  

The workout benefits of the patented Kahuna Creations' land paddling abounds!  Riders not only work their arms, their complete core is targeted on each stroke.  The stabilizing muscles throughout the body are strengthened...from the more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments in the feet, all of which work together to provide support, balance and mobility; through all the 850 muscles throughout the human body.  All work together in harmony.

The great aspect of Kahuna Creations' land paddling is the ability to easily learn how to ride and land paddle.  The Big Stick gives riders that third point of contact to make riding easy to learn.  Kahuna Creations' Landpaddling 101 classes  were created to provide a step-by-step progression on how to get up and ride!  

Many of Kahuna Creations' riders have been initially concerned about the learning curve and worried about falling.  The beautiful result of land paddling is each person, no matter what their physical coordination is, can ride.  Once the rider gets comfortable with the basics of Landpaddling 101 lessons, the learning curve is incredibly fast, fun and safe! 

Kahuna Creations' riders age ranges from youngsters to riders in their 80s!  Everyone can do it and have fun at the level they are comfortable with.  Kahuna Creations' longboards are super stable and forgiving.

Yes, the physical benefits of land paddling are awesome! The mental benefits perhaps are even more beneficial... 

"There is something about board riding. When you ride, all your troubles vanish. Your mind and soul, for an instant, connect with something sacred. Our goal is to give everyone, of all ages, that feeling…Once you get it, no one can ever take it away!" Kahuna Creations' founder, Steve McBride.  

It is so invigorating to take a lunch break or mid afternoon break to get out side, hop on your Kahuna Longboard, grab you Kahuna Big Stick and start landpaddling!  Once you get back from your ride, you're ready for the rest of your day with your mind and body clear for going back to hitting work hard.

Get yours today at Kahuna Creations' website!

The Advent of the Land Paddle

Since the very first humans learned how to build boats and discovered the paddle thousands of years ago, the water paddle has evolved.  

In present day, paddles are used for all sorts of vessels.  Paddles are relatively similar, each paddle has some sort of blade that has enough surface area to push enough water to move across the water and a shaft to connect the blade to the hand grip and provide leverage.  

 

Back in 2005, I was stranded.  I received a call from my auto repair service letting me know my car was repaired and ready for pickup.  I ran into a problem, I live miles away from the repair service and had no ride to pick it up.  It occurred to me that I own a longboard company and thought I should just take one of our longboards and ride over to the shop and pick up my car.  For the first couple of miles, I was feeling good, the ride was mostly downhill. I kept pushing (kicking) that longboard for miles and miles. By the time I arrived at the repair shop, my legs were trashed.  I typically kick with my left leg and ride the board with my right foot forward.  One leg was on fire for pushing all those miles, the other leg was thrashed from being up on the board the entire way. My back was hosed.  My spine was feeling the strain from bending constantly forward as well as sidewards.  

That experience got me thinking...there has got to be a better way to ride a skateboard or longboard.  As I started watching many long boarders and skaters kick and kick and kick to move their board, I thought to myself that has got to be terrible on the body, especially as you get older.  As you get tired, the exposure to injuries increase because as you continue to kick and kick, eventually your feed could get hung up on your board and knock you off balance.  

I developed a completely new perspective.  It dawned on me! There has got to be a way! How about making a paddle for board riders?  After making several prototypes, introducing to the market the first land paddle, our journey just began.

After years of R & D, Kahuna Creations has delivered the absolute best solution for land paddling. It has been tricky developing a paddle for the land because you don't push water like you do from a vessel, you are "paddling" on top of the road.   The genius behind the design is to provide the rider with full power generation throughout the stroke.  We developed a "road blade" that provides a smooth stroke throughout the entire motion.  Envision a swimmer that reaches way out in front to "pull" the water, then transitions to a "push" as she completes the stroke.  The same method is used with land paddling.  The Kahuna Creations Road Blade is the key to making it all happen.  The blade is engineered to provide grip as the rider reaches in front to "pull" against the road, then as the stroke transitions to a "push" the Road Blade maintains the grip throughout the stroke.  

The Road Grip is designed with an "undulated" or wave like form that provides constant, smooth contact with the road throughout the stroke.  The geometry of the blade reflects the stroking angles on the road.  The product is also designed with several dampening holes, of varying size and length, each of which provide the perfect "feel" throughout the stroke and dampen the effects of the road to keep everything smooth.

The design is a organically beautiful and yet simple. Anybody can have  a great experience land paddling.  

The Kahuna Creations' land paddle experience is incredible.  The learning curve is surprisingly quick.  To get started, simply get your longboard and Kahuna Big Stick out to an open, flat parking lot to get used to the paddling feel.  

Check out our Landpaddling 101 Online classes to get a sense of how to learn to ride and have fun!        http://kahunacreations.com/pages/land-paddling-101

Land paddling is super fun, safe to ride, easy to learn and a great core workout.  We have been approached by many athletes that now actively Land Paddle with Kahuna Creations; MMA fighters, Triathlon Champions, NFL Hall of Fame football players, American Ninja Warriors, SUP Champions, Fitness Pros, Tennis Pros and Pro skaters. The feedback we have been getting is astounding!  Kendall "da spider" Grove, PRO MMA fighter, enthusiastically explains that Kahuna land paddling is great for balance and core development. He said he hates working out at the gym, so he gets out on his landpaddling equpment and goes riding.  Kelsey Withrow, World Champion Triathlete, loves landpaddling because "trathletes are used to working out uni-directionally. Biking, swimming and running are all uni-directional and only develop certain muscles. Land Paddling, gives her an overall body balanced workout to augment her physical fitness regiment.  

We discovered that land paddling is a great outdoor activity that can provide balance, core training, upper body development, overall ligament and supporting muscles and tendons from your toes to you head.  There are not many outdoor activities where you can get out at lunch and get a quick upper body and core workout that is super fun and invigorates your mind.  

It is time to roll!

Kahuna Creations now has two new drop decks featuring Hawaiian artist Dennis Mathewson' designs. The Seeker AND Island Lifestyle longboards are a MUST HAVE in your longboard assortment.  

 Dennis Mathewson interview on Island Lifestyle

What do you hope people feel when looking at this design?

"Hawaii really is a cool place full of contemporary art, food, music and a extremely unique tattoo art style. I share my view of Hawaii's people and their passion for the islands in this painting I call, Island Lifestyle."

                      

What was your inspiration for the artwork of Island Lifestyle?

"While approaching the Island Lifestyle concept, I had in mind my friends and the people I know who live in Hawaii. The term we use is 'mixed plate,' meaning, we all come together from different backgrounds, likes and dislikes. That being said, we all form one community together. The mix of different ethnicities and cultures make Hawaii a unique and special place. Island Lifestyle shares what I see and feel as that view, with a little edge to it." 

What does it mean to have your artwork featured on Kahuna Creations longboards?

“With Kahuna Creations weaving my artwork in with their products, my images will be seen on the streets as well as fine art galleries. My work initially started on projects like motorcycles and automobiles, so it is exciting to see it displayed outdoors once again,” said Mathewson.

We here at Kahuna Creations are honored to work with such a talented and world renowned artist. Mathewson's work is featured throughout the world and is sold online and in gallery's throughout the Hawaiian Islands.

Seeker Announcement

Attention: Kahuna Creations Followers!

Kahuna Creations is proud to announce our new, incredible Seeker Drop Deck! Hand painted by world famous Hawaiian artist Dennis Mathewson!

May  2016—Kahuna Creations Inc. (www.kahunacreations.com) has created yet another awe-inspiring long board.  We are honored to work with master-artist, Dennis Mathewson from Honolulu, Hawaii. Mathewson's artwork is debuted on the ever popular Kahuna Creations drop deck featuring his incredible  "Seeker"  masterpiece.  The release of this new longboard will be the first in a series of new designs for Kahuna Creations. This along with all longboards sold by Kahuna Creations are made in the United States in San Diego. 

“It has been an honor to work with such a renowned artist like Dennis,” said Steve McBride, CEO and Founder of Kahuna Creations. “Incorporating his art with our boards is the culminating event thus far in our history. It brings us a bit closer to our vision of honoring the Hawaiians who started board riding 100’s of years ago,” said McBride.

The longboarding community can expect to be enthralled by the intricate and breathtaking art work of the board. They will also be surprised by the maneuverability of the unique drop deck design.

“With Kahuna Creations using my artwork, my images will be seen in the outdoors on the streets as well as fine art galleries,” said Mathewson. “My work initially started on projects like motorcycles and automobiles, so it is exciting to see it displayed outdoors once again,” said Mathewson.

When asked concerning the inspiration for the artwork of Seeker Mathewson responded with the following: "For years, I tried to capture a photo of a free swimming octopus, with little success. Face it, when this creature is in the open water it becomes bait to many predators. My good friend, Gary Simons, a dive instructor and captain on the big island provided me with a reference photo he captured from a dive. Although the photos was out of focus, I was able to recreate Seeker from this reference. I see Seeker as an octopus seeking refuge from the dangers of the open water. 

The Seeker drop deck is available now! The board is MSRP @ $249.99
