There’s something wrong about buying a surfboard from someone who doesn’t surf, it’s like buying diet pills from someone who looks like they haven’t seen the inside of a gym in a decade.  When you purchase a surfboard, skateboard or snowboard from MakerUSA not only will you first and foremost get an amazing piece of art, but you’ll get a board performance tested by an industry sportsman.  Okay, so back to the designs – they’re insane!  MakerUSA collaborates with local and well-known artists (including graphic designers, street artists, painters and tattoo artists) to create boards your buddies will be jealous of.  They also make it a point to be sustainable, utilizing FCS certified woods and veneers and working with local lumberyards.  Plus, the boards themselves are recyclable, as in after you smash it one day you can just put it on display in your house.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
