"Record your wildest travel adventures this year with the waterproof action camera that can take a beating while still producing stunning HD video and 12mp photos. GoPro's newest model is smaller, lighter, and sharper than ever before with impressive low light performance." -- Matthew Karsten, ExpertVagabond.com

Inflatable Stand-Up Paddleboard

Inflatable Stand-Up Paddleboard

“I’m obsessed with SUP (stand-up paddleboarding); I even have even taken up SUP yoga. The only problem is there’s no easy way to carry those giant boards around. My problem is solved with this Tower inflatable stand-up paddleboard ! Now I can easily carry my board when I travel, as it folds up, comes with its own carrying bag and even fits in the overhead compartment on a plane. Perfect for my next trip to Hawaii.” -- Kathleen, Interactive Producer
