  3. Must have gadgets for the 2015/16 Ski Season

     

    A-bom anti-fog goggles www.abom.com

    A-bom is a new company born out of a kickstarter project. The concept behind these new goggles seems like such a simple idea and it’s got the team at PYB wondering why no one has developed it before. These battery powered goggles promise to keep you fog free all day, no matter the conditions. Simply turn them on and the battery sends a current through an invisible heat-conductive film which sits in between a two-part lens keeping the fog at bay without you having to adjust vents or wipe the lens. The 7 hour battery life enables you to go all day without recharging and the stylish variations will keep you looking on point whilst on the mountain. At around £165 these googles are a steal when compared to some of the other brands on the market. They are yet to go on general sale but you can pre-order a pair from their website www.abom.com & they’ll be here for the new season. We expect these to really kick off and become a staple of any ski or boarders arsenal.

    Bear Tek Sport Gloves http://www.beartekgloves.com

    Bear Tek’s winter sports gloves are another product that are packed with technology for this ski season. Two bluetooth modules allow you to sync your gloves to your Go-Pro and Smartphone/music player at the same time. Different sensors and buttons built into the fingers allow you to control music, answer calls, start/stop recording video all whilst on the move or having to take your gloves off. The rechargeable battery promises to last for 80 hours so they should do a weeks skiing no problem. The gloves come in a practical but stylish design which will keep you warm as well as in control of all your gadgets this winter. The only downside is the price. At £165, the gloves don’t seem too bad but if you want both Go-Pro and smartphone technology you’re looking at an additional £95. At £260 these gloves are perhaps suited to someone doing a full season rather than a week’s holiday here or there. However if you’ve got the cash they’re definitely one to look at. Imagine never having to take your gloves off for a photo in sub-zero, windy conditions ever again….bliss

    OnBeep Onyx http://www.onyx.com/

    The Onyx from OnBeep is a small wearable radio that allows you to communicate with anyone with an onyx as long as you have a Wi-Fi or cellular signal. The simple design has a large push to talk button so you’ll be able to operate it with your gloves on. This may seem like a glorified walkie-talkie but don’t be fooled. With the Onyx app installed you can see where your friends are and invite others with onyx to join in with your conversation. The obvious problem is you often don’t have cellular data when abroad and there certainly isn’t Wi-Fi everywhere on a mountain! However with network carriers introducing affordable data allowances whilst in Europe these could be a great addition this ski season at just £95 for three.

    Go Pro Hero 4 http://gopro.com/

    A Go Pro has been a must in any serious skier/boarders toolbox for a while now so it will come as no surprise that the latest Go-Pro makes our list. There are a few variations of the Go Pro 4 which start at entry level and go right through to Pro models. The prices range from around £250 up to around £400 for a Go Pro 4. At the top level the latest advancements in the cameras technology will provide you with 4K video and the ability to film in super slowmo, whilst also featuring a screen for instant playback. There have been a few copycat cameras in recent years but for us the Go Pro is still arguably the No.1 essential for any serious winter sports enthusiast.

    Trace Snow app http://www.traceup.com/

    Not a gadget as such but this is an app you should seriously consider downloading this ski season. Available on both Apple’s App store and google Play for android users, Trace Snow tracks your speed, distance covered, calories burned and air time to name but a few of its features. You can also connect your Go Pro via Wi-Fi which gives you the ability to edit your videos adding speed, airtime and altitude which is pretty cool. The app is free to download but offers in-app purchases & a physical tracker is also available to buy for around £150 to enhance user experience.

    Lily Drone https://www.lily.camera/

    Due in May 2016 (if you pre-order now) the Lily drone in all probability is going to come too late for this season. However if you can afford it, it’s a must purchase. Lily is a drone like no other, you simply turn it on and through it in the air and the drone will then do the rest. Lily is programmed to fly itself leaving you to concentrate on your activity. Lily has three different settings; follow mode, lead mode or loop mode allowing you to capture all angles of your chosen activity. Filming in 1080p, Lily delivers crisp, high definition video with the ability to film in slow motion and is ideal for those who have a bag of big tricks and want to capture it. The only drawback is the 20 minutes of flight time and the price tag which is currently around £550

  4. Exploring Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast

    Exploring Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, its many islands and thriving nightlife

    Croatia Hvar dalmatian coast

     

    Since its arrival into the European Union, Croatia has quickly become one of Europe’s most popular summer destinations. Attracting visitors from all over the globe, the  Dalmatian islands are a popular stop on the European travel circuit with Australians, Americans and South Africans, whilst also attracting visitors from all over Europe. Croatia’s Dalmatian coast has for a long time been famed for its beauty, crystal clear waters and national parks (there are 8 in total) however it’s this combined with Croatia’s thriving nightlife & music festival scene and relatively moderate cost of living prices that is driving revelers to its shores. We explore 3 of Croatia’s most popular islands:

    Pag

    If you’re looking for a  party holiday but tired of the typical 18-30 holidays to places like Aiya Napa and Magaluf where you seem to spend your life avoiding forceful reps promising all you can drink for 2 hours for 10 euros then Pag may be the place for you. Pag plays host to many open air festivals such as Hideout and is the Croatia’s party capital. Often described as the new Ibiza, Zcre beach is renowned for hosting some of Croatia’s wildest parties. Both club Kalypso and Aquarius club lie on the beach and are packed out from the end of June right the way through to the beginning of September. Attracting world class DJ’s throughout the summer this really is the place to be if you’re looking for a non-stop party. Despite having built its reputation as the No.1 party destination in Croatia, the islands beauty is what makes it so special. There are many quieter beaches and beautiful scenery to be found all over the island which certainly will help nurse that hangover.

     

    Whose it best for: The perfect location for those who enjoy partying 24/7 or are into dance festivals.

    When to go: July

     

    Hvar

    Hvar is Croatia’s most luxurious destination. The harbour is almost always filled with multi million pound yachts and on a good day would rival some of the most prestigious the world over. If you enjoy the finer things in life, have a little bit of cash to spend on a holiday and enjoy a vibrant nightlife Hvar is the place to go. Steeped in history, Hvar has many cultural wonders to be seen such as the old Spanjola Fortress which was built in the 16th century to protect the bay and town. Despite its many cultural wonders Hvar has also managed to carve itself out as quite the party destination. Hula Hula bar is quickly becoming famed for its sunsets and Carpe Diem beach club sit’s on its own island just off the coast of Hvar. The open air club boasts white leather sofas, big named DJ’s and doesn’t open till 2am but the party doesn’t stop till long after the sun has come up. Great bars, clubs and restaurants makes Hvar the perfect destination for those looking for a lively nightlife whilst the cultural sites and beaches provide some substance and culture.

     

    Whose it best for: Ideal for those who want the perfect mix of scenery, beauty, sophistication and lively nightlife.

    When to go: July – Mid August

     

     

    Brac

    Looking to visit one of the Dalmatian coasts many islands but on a bit of a budget? Then Brac could be the destination of choice for you. Sat just off the coast of mainland Split, Brac is easily accessible by boat. Thanks to the soaring popularity of islands like Pag and Hvar, Brac is far less touristy and for that reason the accommodation, food and drink prices are much cheaper. Brac also has the added advantage that it features Zlatni Rat beach, one of Croatia’s most beautiful beaches. The town of Bol has a wide range of bars and clubs which are open from dusk till dawn and despite the island being far less touristy than some of the others, it still remains a popular stop off for many yacht fleets which ensure the bars and clubs remain busy all summer and host some pretty wild beach parties. It’s worth researching when the big ones are should you be looking to plan a visit.

     

    Whose it best for: Perfect for those who are on a bit of a budget, looking for a good time.

    When to go: Mid June – Early September
