You Have to Scuba Dive To Reach Sony's Newest Store 

You Have to Scuba Dive To Reach Sony's Newest Store  | Water Sports | Scoop.it
Some retailers believe that it's important to make their stores easy to find. They'll even pay a premium for space in popular malls or streets with lots of foot traffic. Sony is taking a different approach with its Xperia Aquatech Store, one that definitely does not value convenience and spits on the concept of foot traffic. For one thing, it's underwater. For another, you have to scuba to get there. On top of that, you have to be invited.

Surfing Kryger kids are a triple threat on the waves

Surfing Kryger kids are a triple threat on the waves | Water Sports | Scoop.it
When third-graders at Cline Elementary School saw the newspapers that Chase, Connor and Isabelle Kryger brought back from Australia for "show and tell" last month, they read about the 8-year-old Friendswood triplets' success at a world surfing competition. Isabelle placed third among girls in her age group, while Connor was 12th and Chase 15th among 8-year-old boys in the BL's Blast Off surfing festival on Sept. 22-25 north of Sydney. The triplets also compete in Texas Gulf Coast Surfing Association events held in Galveston, Corpus Christi, Port Aransas and South Padre. The kids also do summer swim team, and they love riding bikes and skateboarding. [...] riding "cement waves" at area skateboard parks is excellent practice for surfing, Kryger said.
