Now is the time to get out of the house, soak in the sun and try something new. From bread making to learning the latest TikTok dance, Americans picked up new hobbies since the COVID-19 pandemic. As travel gets busier, keep the momentum going with paddle boarding that can travel with you anywhere in the world.


“As many people picked up a new hobby over the last year, they are now looking to take that hobby on the road as travelling becomes less restricted.”  CEO and co-founder Steve Elder remarks. Starting as a passion project, Elder had a vision to offer customers a durable, high-end paddle board with a strong community of like-minded individuals behind it. While on track to double in size by the end of 2021, iROCKER is the fastest growing outdoor brand with a dedication to top-of-the line design and manufacturing.  “iROCKER’s inflatable paddleboards are great from road trips to luxury travel destinations as they can be easily stored in a trunk or checked luggage.”

iROCKER’s luxury inflatable paddle boards make it easy to bring this new hobby of yours anywhere in the world. Easy to travel in a checked bag, the inflatable SUPs can be blown up in as little as five–seven minutes to ensure less time inflating and more time on the water. Each paddle board comes with a three-piece paddle, a dual chamber hand pump, removable fins, a repair kit and travel roller bag. With a weight of only 26 pounds, the unit can easily be transported to these top destinations, like Honolulu, Hawai’i; Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; Whistler, Canada; Lake Tahoe, Nevada; and, for the most experienced, the Antarctic Peninsula to paddle through the ice and float with seals and penguins.


For beginners, try Blackfin Model X for an introductory unit to the sport, while the Blackfin Movel V is more ideal for touring. All of the Blackfin models are compatible with fishing rack and sand spear attachments. The Cruiser, All Around and Sport models are all equipped with mounting points to easily convert stand-up boards into kayaks with the specialty kits.


Each board can be customized with various attachments and accessories.

Host a Fabled Business Event in Wonderful Copenhagen

I imagine that when writer Hans Christian Andersen mused, “Life itself is the most wonderful fairy tale,” he was standing at the edge of Copenhagen’s historic Tivoli Gardens, one of his favorite haunts, enlivened by the swirl of human happiness that surrounded him: children laughing; carousels spinning; games of chance played for prizes; lovers holding hands; hungry people whispering over sweets, hot drinks, beer and towering, open-faced smørrebrød, Denmark’s quintessential sandwich. That fairy tale lives on today at the second-oldest amusement park in the world, a spectacle of folly architecture, bakeries, gardens, rides, restaurants, puppet shows and joy ... and which also happens to be one of the city’s most storied places to convene for business.

Irwin’s Review

I recently dined at Irwin’s in Philadelphia. The restaurant is located on the rooftop of the Bok Building, a former school turned collective of small businesses, non-profits, artist workshops, a bar and restaurant. I previously visited Bok for the bar and yoga classes, and I was excited to experience the restaurant.

La Concha Resort Puerto Rico Review

Arriving early afternoon in Puerto Rico, we jumped in an Uber and took a short, 15-minute drive from the airport to La Concha.  As it was Tuesday, the streets were not too busy and the hotel lobby was calm. During the weekend, the scene likely would have been more bustling. We were greeted by a staff member who requested proof of vaccination and government-issued ID, and were given a wristband to indicate we were fully vaccinated. All guests are required to be vaccinated and wear masks at all times while moving around the hotel. Hand sanitizer stations were placed around the lobby, in elevators and in each common area.
