Surf-style comes to skateboards with Hamboards. Founded by a family of lifeguards in southern California, Hamboards makes skateboards that are like surfing on land. The company makes several models of longboards and skateboards, with names like Pinger, Pescadito, and the Biscuit.
Hamboards manufactures and sells rail-to-rail Surfskates, SUPskates, Paddles and Accessories. Most Hamboards are longer, wider and sit higher off the ground than conventional skateboards and longboards.
Hamboards also turn much more than conventional surfboards. The enabling technology are the patented Hamboards Surfskate Trucks (HST), featuring 30 degrees of roll (in each direction), which allows these huge boards to track and pump aggressive surf-style carving maneuvers.

ScreenMend is an easy and cost-effective way to patch window screens. By applying just a bit of heat over the patch, with any blow dryer you have around the house, ScreenMend patches become securely affixed to the screen. This clever invention came from a serendipitous discovery that a father and daughter stumbled upon as they did work around the house.
Screenmend is a long-lasting weatherproof solution for all screen rips and tears that is durable and will save time.
Screenmend is available in adhesive-coated patches and rolls in charcoal and silver-grey. To mend simply remove the paper backing and cut the Screenmend patch to the desired size, leaving an extra half-inch around the damaged area. Holding the adhesive side of the patch against the tear, apply heat with a hair dryer and in as little as 60 seconds, your screen will have a strong and long-lasting repair.

Sunday Night Slow Jams is a radio show mixing slow jams from past and present. Nationally syndicated across 80 cities, Sunday Night Slow Jams has an audience of over 1 million listeners. The show also has a live concert tour every year during February, appropriately so, given it’s the month of Valentine’s Day.
It is hosted by DJ R Dubs and attracts a number of talented musicians as guests each and every week. As a syndicated radio station, Sunday Night Slow Jams would need to attract advertisers before it could sell itself to radio stations looking to broadcast a show of this nature.
Sunday Night Slow Jams can now be heard on 50 radio stations in three countries.
