Posted by mandy on July 28th, 2010

Many people fantasize about surfing at some point during their lives. And while this is an extremely common occurrence, actually getting up on a board and gliding over the waves is a bit less common. However, for those individuals who continue this fantasy into their adult lives and end up vacationing in San Diego, they are in luck. Not only does this beautiful Southern California city offer some of the country’s best surfing opportunities but there are also some great instructors and classes available that will assist all ages and skill levels in fulfilling their dream.

The best resorts San Diego might have some of the best views of the beaches and the Pacific Ocean, but they won’t get you as up as close as a ride on the waves themselves. The Ocean Experience and San Diego Surf Lessons are two prominent surf schools in the city. With SDSL there are multiple lesson options offered and even a surf camp. The camp can be structured for both day and overnight preferences and the company is perfect for accommodating beginners as well as those who are on vacation. Group, private and semi private lessons will also serve most comfort levels and though you might be a little shy it can actually help to take a class with other students. Regardless of how experienced you are or if you will need lessons, San Diego is one of the nation’s top surf oriented vacation destinations.

Costume Fiascos

After several tries of making your own costume, it might come the time to admit that costume rental is the right choice for you. Most people have had the experience, when young, of deciding on the perfect thing for Halloween. This is followed by a lot of planning, drawing sketches on notebook paper, and talking it up with friends. Eventually, there comes the moment when all the supplies are gathered together, and the work gets under way. Then comes another telling moment, and the turning point for many people, when you discover that it’s impossible to glue cloth together .

Even an elementary knowledge of sewing can help make things right, and kids will usually find an adult to help. After a few tries, and some success in getting the pieces together in just the right way, it’s obvious that the original plan didn’t come close to the finished product. For the moments where it really matters, it’s a good idea to get to the costume shop and get exactly what you’re looking for. It happens in stage work, too, where last minute fiascos lead the costume crew to the rental store, because the costumes there have been tested, and they do look like they’re supposed to. There’s always time later to try it again on your own, and let this night be as special as it’s supposed to be.

What to Do Before Buying a Second Hand Boat

Posted by mandy on July 18th, 2010

If you are thinking of buying a boat second hand, it can really cut down on the cost compare to buying something brand new, but there are a few things you will want to do before you hand over the money and take home your boat.

Find out what sort of warranties are still active on various parts of the boat. Often times Yamaha Marine products will have warranties on them, as will other parts of the boat. If the boat is less than two years old, it is more likely to have warranties on it.

You will want to find out where they get their parts from and find out if they have a manual with part numbers for replacing anything from Yamaha Marine Parts to replacing ropes and pulleys. If it is a sail boat you will also want to know where they have previously purchased new sails and sail covers. While it does not happen often, occasionally a sail cover will fly off or a sail will get torn.

Give it a test drive with the current owner. Take note of things like the vibration, steering control, any dials that no longer work, make sure it can go in reverse and other standard things that will be helpful in real life. When you are done, make sure the two of you dock it so that you have an idea of what this will be like.
