Introducing The Moment Of Discovery Jacket

Introducing The Moment Of Discovery Jacket

When it comes to searching for waves in cold water destinations, it’s essential to have a jacket that can hold up to a multitude of conditions. Freezing temperatures, high winds, rain storms and even snow can make any adventure difficult. The Moment of Discovery Poly-Tech Jacket can handle whatever weather you run into, and do it with a modern and clean style.

Made to protect you from the elements, the soft polyester exterior fabric with interior waterproof coating keeps the weather out. It’s bonded Micro Fleece interior lining gives comfort and warmth, while a scuba style hood offers good coverage and plenty of protection. The water resistant zippers with interior wind blocking flap, welt pockets, and drawcords with toggles at the hood and waist, insures that the weather stays out and you stay dry.

We kept the branding of the jacket clean and subtle, using just a simple patch located below the pocket. We created its own logo by combining our traditional boxed logo with our new Moment of Discovery tagline. If you are needing a multipurpose and technical jacket that is also stylish and modern, look no further than our Moment of Discovery Poly-Tech Jacket.

Welcome to the team Justin Buford! Justin has been a part of the shop since we opened in 2010. He was a true local grom who would spend his days skateboarding in our parking lot and washing rental wetsuits when he wasn’t in school. His family lived just up the street and his step-dad is one of the best surfers in town. His brother-in-law comes from the legendary South County Surf family the Ledbetters. Surfing is who and what Justin is, it’s in his blood. 
It felt a lot like home, Ireland. I suppose in a bizarre way it is, as my ancestors planted their roots in county Sligo on the North West coast of the country in the early 1700's after immigrating from Scotland. Ireland has been at the top of my travel list since long before I found out there was surf there. I formed images in my head of what the landscape would look like from seeing pictures, videos and hearing stories of infamous rocky basalt point breaks and shallow heaving slabs. Every image I had crafted fell short in comparison to seeing it all in person for the first time.
Houdini was the ultimate escape artist of his time, and it’s pretty obvious that this was the reasoning behind the naming of the Firewire Houdini; a board built with large, powerful barrels in mind, as well as the act of disappearing into those barrels and then escaping while still standing. So will the Firewire Houdini have you escaping the best barrels of your life, or will you suffer the same fate as the namesake with a fatal punch in the gut when you paddle out into some bombing lineup?
“You’ve got to pay to play” or something along those lines, is what we tell ourselves whenever a board is broken during a session. When you get comfortable enough in waves that require a step-up board like Lost’s Sabo-Taj model, the likelihood of snapping it is pretty high. Extra glassing offered from many shapers can help, but it still takes just one bad wipeout or mistimed positioning to kiss your favorite PU board goodbye. So when Lib-Tech took its “dang difficult to ding” technology and combined it with Lost Surfboard’s slab hunting Sabo-Taj, could a board be born that finally holds up to heavy conditions? Let’s find out….
