Introducing The Discovery Division Adventure Pack

Introducing The Discovery Division Adventure Pack

Timothy Leary once theorized that surfers are living a more fulfilling life because they know how to be in the moment better than most people. As humans, we tend to focus on either past failures or be burdened by an unknown future. We forget to live in the present and enjoy what we are currently doing. When riding a wave, surfers tend to only focus on the moment happening. It’s also our single-minded pursuit of finding these waves that tend to simplify our lives and help us live in the present. All forms of energy travel in waves, and surfers are the ones that have learned to ride them.

Adventure and discovery are also important aspect of life that surfers tend to do more than the average person. We are known to travel the globe in search of waves. We study weather, history, and geography all in the attempt to best locate and time the arrival of swells. It is because of this pursuit of living in the present that we named our surf shop Moment Surf Company. It is also why we’ve expanded and created our Discovery Division line. Our goal is to make cold water travel easier and help you live in the moment no matter where your adventures take you.

Continuing to expand on our product offering, we are very proud to introduce our Discovery Division Adventure Pack. It is your do-everything, all-in-one travel backpack. Over two years in development and tested during countless trips to cold water destinations, we feel we have created the perfect travel pack. It’s designed to hold and handle whatever you need to search out the most remote destinations in the world. The perfect size for air travel, durable enough for rugged life on the road, and engineered to handle whatever the weather throws at you. It will keep your wet gear away from your dry clothes, protect your laptop and organize your favorite fins. There are areas specifically designed for your toiletries, sunscreen, wax, sunglasses, wallet, keys/screws, and even a hidden passport pocket. There are exterior carrying loops to attach items like boots, water bottles, and our Discovery Division Travel Poncho. Its padded shoulder straps and sternum harness make even the heaviest load easy to carry. We developed it to handle any adventure you go on, from a day trip to the beach or an around the world life of discovery. It’s durable, functional, and ready to get you out there! Designed in the Northwest, built for the world!

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….
