Enhancing The Water Experience Through Inflatable Paddle Boards

Standup paddle boarding is gaining overwhelming popularity nowadays but some people are turned off by the challenge of transporting a 12-foot long paddle board to enjoy the sport. The best and most practical option is the inflatable paddle board that can easily be stowed inside the luggage. Standup paddle boarding is fun and the inflatable paddle board allows you to enjoy the water sport with ease.

The inflatable board is fully integrated with a self-inflation system that can be activated using a rechargeable battery with a magnetic switch. The new innovation is similar to the air mattress that requires 5 minutes to inflate. When the paddle board has been fully inflated, it does not give an impression that its interior is made up of air because it remains firm until it is deflated. Is it safe? Certainly, it is safe and extremely easy to inflate and deflate.

In its deflated stage, the paddle board weighs about 23 pounds plus an additional 3 pounds for the bag and the rechargeable battery. The rechargeable battery is waterproof and can be used for about 3 inflations before it needs recharging. Another additional feature of inflatable paddle boards is the app used to monitor the pressure gauge. The app can also track your paddle sessions and activate an anti-theft alarm of Board Finder in case someone attempts to steal your equipment.

The inflatable paddle board is offered in various shapes for different experiences. For example, the All Rounder is suitable for family trips while the Cruiser is perfect for those who prefer longer trips. The Balance is the ideal paddle board for those who want to enhance their stability in the water. However, regardless of the type of paddle board you use, it is important to do the sport in a body of water suitable for the sport.

Apart from the inflatable paddle board, there are also Inflatable SUP Accessories designed for a better experience in the waters. If you are going to buy an inflatable paddle board, a longer board glides better while a wide board provides more balance. If you want your turns to be better, try for a shorter paddle board.

London Retail Store Collapses Into Administration And Threatens 11,000 Jobs

Landmarks are frequently used in map illustrations to make it easier for a visitor to find a certain location. In London, however, landmarks were illuminated with giant flags printed with the slogan #SaveBHS in order to obtain some form of support for the 11,000 staff of a popular retailer. Why is there a campaign for BHS?

Sir Philip Green sold BHS to Retail Acquisitions a group of investors last 2015 for one pound but it was later found out that the retail store had a £571 million pension deficit. BHS is composed of 164 stores and 11,000 staff whose jobs hang in the balance until the Pensions Regulator can find a buyer. The social media campaign was planned to show support for the staff who have been with the store for 15 to 20 years.

The idea behind the hash tag #SaveBHS was to help the business find a buyer who will allow the whole staff to keep their jobs. Everybody has his fingers crossed hoping that a buyer will soon turn up to save the store. Campaigners are posting messages on social media so that something positive may come up and solve the predicament of the BHS staff.

BHS was once a popular retail store that collapsed into administration. Jobs were threatened with fears over retirement income. Its previous owner Sir Philip Green was reported to have increased his offer of contributing £80 million towards the pension fund but it cannot plug the shortfall. Retail consultant Phil Dorrell said that there is no retailer who will buy BHS wholesale.

Retail Acquisitions that bought BNS from its previous owner says that no one is to be blamed since the problem was a result of bad trading and not being able to raise enough money from the property portfolio.

On a lighter note, people will be too glad to get hold of a London City Illustrated Map that uses landmarks and popular buildings so that visitors will easily find their way along the streets of London. Illustrated maps are different from traditional paper maps because they are more aesthetically pleasing and artistic.
