Video: Climbing the White Mountain in China

With this video GoPro takes us to the White Mountain of China, where we meet climber Ting Xiao and her boyfriend Abond. Both wear GoPro cameras as they scale the rock faces of the White Mountain along a rock climbing route that is estimated to be a 5.14B in terms of difficulty. Of course, the clips gives us an up close look at the challenges of the climb, which this former city-girl works hard to…

oscontrolOscillation control Airflow can be directed around a room – one touch for smooth oscillation.

 

easytiltEasy tilt Pivots on its own center of gravity. easytocleanEasy to clean No awkward safety grilles or blades.

Our Thoughts:  Hands down, this is the best fan we have ever seen or used. We knew going into using this, that with the Dyson name being behind it, we wouldn’t be disappointed. We never expected a fan, that doesn’t have blades, to be so powerful in cooling a room or specific area. These are our top reasons as to why we love this fan and would suggest it to anyone looking for a smaller office or desk fan. * It moves air around the room without blowing around the papers on the desk.

* For the amount of air that it moves, it is much quieter than most fans. While all fans will make noise (you can’t
get away from that), this one allows you to still be able to have a conversation when the fan is at a higher
setting.

* We love the remote control with 10 settings!

* We love the look – It is a very stylish looking fan.

Note: We realize that with the price of the fan, it may not be for everyone, but we think it is a great investment and a product built of quality in design, functionality and materials.

You can find more information and purchase this fan at Dyson.com

Video: Whitewater Stand-Up Paddleboarding

I hate to admit it, but I have yet to try stand-up paddleboarding. I know that it is one of the fastest growing outdoor sports around, and it looks like a lot of fun, but I simply haven’t had the opportunity to give it a go yet. I hope to change that very soon. In the meantime, I have gained a new respect for some of the folks who do SUP, thanks to videos like this one. It shows pro paddleboarder…
