Trekking: Surf park or play waves with the Peño Wave Rider

first_img Is Calisthenics Right For You? A Guide to Bodyweight Workouts Man isn’t meant to stay indoors — our weekly “Trekking” column can attest to that. It’s a column dedicated to the adventurer inside of all of us, the one pining to ditch the office humdrum for a quick surf session or seven-week jaunt in the Grand Tetons. One day we may highlight an ultra-light stove and the next a set of handmade canoe paddles. Life doesn’t just happen inside the workplace, so get outside and live it.These days, there’s no denying the appeal of stand up paddle boarding — and why would you? It’s a sport that basks in a kind of simplicity akin to hiking or yoga, one in which you move at your own pace in a serene environment of your own choosing, leisurely paddling about the water without the workout associated with more demanding sports like surfing. However, calm waters and relaxation aren’t for everyone, as the folks behind the Halo Peño Wave Rider ($1,300) can attest.Related: The Manual’s Stand Up Paddle Board GuideAlthough the Colorado-based Hala offers a bevy of stand up paddle boards, none of them are quite as versatile as the Peño. The inflatable board is designed for surfing park or play waves, reveling in a swallow tail design reliant on four fixed fins — or five, if you please — that let you track and quickly carve with the utmost precision. The board, inflatable in a matter of minutes, also comes lined with a full-length traction pad and a raised stomp pad, the latter component of which is designed to provide you with greater control while maneuvering through waves and wake. Moreover, the board’s 6-inch drop stitch is some most durable available, adding to its stability alongside its double-layered build. Best of all, it’s one of the few stand up paddle boards on the market you can control by standing in single place, giving it a feel more in line with a snowboard than your traditional paddle board.However, the Peño’s maneuverability only comes second to its portability. When all is said and done, you can deflate the board and toss it in the bundled backpack, allowing you to pack it out without hassle. Now, if only surfboards functioned in the same way.Check out Hala online for more information, to make a purchase, or to browse the company’s notable selection of stand up paddle boards and apparel.

Quebecor considering launching wireless service outside home province

Quebecor considering launching wireless service outside home province MONTREAL – Quebecor Inc. (TSX:QBR.B) will soon decide whether it will expand its wireless service outside of its home province of Quebec, but chief executive Pierre Dion wants to first meet with the federal government.“We expect to meet with the Canadian government soon in order to let them know what we assume to be the right conditions for us to operate a single service wireless business outside of our home territory,” Quebecor president and chief executive Pierre Dion said Thursday.“Its response will dictate our next step.”Dion said the company is analyzing its options, but did not specify what he was looking for to make a decision to expand across the country.Quebecor owns the province’s most-read tabloid newspaper and its most-watched TV network. It also operates a 24-hour news TV channel and Videotron, Canada’s third-largest cable services provider and a wireless provider in Quebec.Quebecor bought a swath of wireless spectrum in Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia, in addition to Quebec, in the federal government’s spectrum auction earlier this year.The move raised hopes it would become a fourth national player to compete with Rogers (TSX:RCI.B), Telus (TSX:T) and Bell (TSX:BCE), but the Quebec company has been cagey about whether it will take up the challenge.“I’m confident that our team will manage the process rigorously and that should the plan make sense, we will get the right attention,” said Dion, adding that he expects to make a decision in a “few months.”Quebecor said Thursday it earned a profit attributable to shareholders of $40.7 million, or 33 cents per basic share, in the first quarter, compared to $35.6 million and 29 cents per share in the same period last year.The Montreal-based media company says adjusted income from continuing operations was $49.3 million, or 40 cents per share — up from $36 million or 29 cents a share in the same period of 2013.Revenue during the quarter was $1.04 billion, a gain of $11.4 million or just over one per cent.Quebecor’s telecommunications segment grew its revenues by $31.8 million and its adjusted operating income by $21.9 million in the quarter. Videotron Ltd. saw first quarter revenue increases for all of its major services.Internet access revenue was 6.9 per cent higher at $13.6 million, the mobile phone segment grew 23.4 per cent to $11.7 million and cable television revenue grew marginally to $800,000.During the quarter, Pierre Karl Peladeau resigned from the Quebecor board following his decision to enter provincial politics. He was elected as a Parti Quebecois party member in April. Sylvie Lalande was appointed board chairman of TVA Group and Françoise Bertrand named the board chairman at Quebecor. by The Canadian Press Posted May 8, 2014 4:18 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more
