  • Biarritz - When France Reminds You to Breathe

    Biarritz Tapas BarI was starting to get a little bummed about the food in France - feeling like it was relatively unhealthy, predictable and all too westernized (Can Anyone Save French Food?). Here I am in Biarritz, standing at a pleasantly packed self-serve wine and tapas bar reflecting on the halfway point of my two-week journey through France and Spain. I’d like to think I can express more, but all I can say at the moment is Wow!  I’m totally captivated by this place. The town, the textures, the people, and now the places and this food... The intricately painted tile counters are like beautiful little puzzles and the traditional artisan french dishes are savory and refreshing.

    I’ll get back to Biarritz in just a moment but let’s rewind to this morning at the Quiksilver Pro in Hossegor where I was working in the VIP section, thanks to GoPro, while the WSL was deciding whether to run the surf contest or not. Propped up in an inflatable black branded boomerang chair, sipping French espresso, I whittled away on my laptop pushing pixels for an app I’m building for the Palm Beach Opera in between snapping photos of pro surfers in the lineup. As you can imagine, opera and surfing are worlds apart, but I run a digital agency and have a surf startup so one fuels the other for now. As the hours passed and the wireframes came to life, the decision was inevitably made to postpone the event to the next day, and that my friends, is called a layday. After considering the news, I decided to wrap up my marketing work and hit the road for an adventure along the coastline. Fortunately, as fate would have it, I’m now standing in a wine bar in Biarritz, so I am thankful the WSL made the call.

    Bar Jean Tapas

    Ah Biarritz, I’ve heard so many good things about you, but words can’t compare to the sights, sounds, and smells currently seducing my senses. Like a siren, the ocean crashes upon your curvy shores sending vibrations of sound through the cool misty air as if you’re calling me to jump in. True rawness, danger, and beauty. You know how to catch my eye. I could see people off in the distance dancing to your melodic song. Twisting and turning as they worked their way to the shore and back out again.

    Biarritz Sunset

    Collecting my thoughts, I pulled back with the slight raise of my head pausing in enthrallment of the moment. Literally saying out loud “Where am I?” Watching surfers while studying the ocean had left me wondering should I join? Or should I take a couple steps back from the seawall and absorb the breathtaking sunset showing off in front of me? Knowing that to try both would be but a distraction, I dismissed the idea of surfing and decided to sink into the experience.

    Biarritz couple

    Biarritz Coastline

    Physically nodding, just a little as if to agree, I took 10 steps back and attempted to breathe.

    Pausing in life really does make time stand still, or so it feels.

    As the moon started to show her face and the day drew to a close, I bid you cheers to making life matter when life matters most.

    Cheers,

    Nick

  • Product Spotlight: Century Convertible Tote

    At HEX we are always looking for ways to introduce new bag shapes and designs to fill the needs of our customers. Introducing the Convertible Tote, making its debut in our Century Collection. This bag can easily convert from a tote bag to a backpack using the supplied shoulder strap.

    HEX_Century_Collection_02_Convertible_Tote

    Exterior
    The bag is constructed in water resistant, heavy blue oil-waxed canvas twill, with faux leather brown trim. It is designed to wear and distress with use to achieve an heirloom patina. On the front there is a quick access phone pocket that will hold your iPhone (6 or 6 Plus) or your Android device with a snap enclosure. There are also two snap pockets on the back to hold business cards, change, etc. The carry handles are long enough to fit over your shoulder to use as a shoulder bag or simply carry hand-held. The real ingenuity with this new bag is that the supplied shoulder strap can be used to convert your tote into a backpack. This lets you have a hands-free way to carry your gear as your travel or commute.

There is also a padded front access pocket for your phone or other essentials. Additional custom-sized snap pockets adorn the back and are perfect for metro cards, spare change, and more. The tote can be hand carried or worn over-the-shoulder and also comes with a removable shoulder strap. This strap can also be woven through an ingenious loop on the back of the bag to enable it to be worn as a backpack.

  • Ghost Writer: Darius Fong - Not So Ordinary

    Processed with VSCOcam with m5 preset

    Darius Fong is, first of all, a friend.  But he is also a music entrepreneur, and Grammy-Award-winning audio engineer who produces as thePREFCT.  His production credits span from rock bands like Weezer and Cold War Kids to jazz legends like Herb Alpert, Sergio Mendes and Natalie Cole.  In 2013, Darius founded weeSPIN, a social music app that let's people listen to music together, like a digital jukebox.  We always like what he has to say and we hope you do too.

    I fell in love with coffee in LA. Or maybe I should say, I fell in love with LA through coffee.

    When I first arrived in Los Angeles I was intimidated.  I was not intimidated by its massive sprawl or by its traffic flow.  I was intimidated by its creative energy that spreads miles and miles.  I felt like a painter staring at a blank canvas.  It was nerve racking, thrilling and inspiring all at the same time.

    darius

    As a young producer trying to make waves, there aren’t too many cities like LA.  I guess you could say that I was a skeptic at first, but coffee changed my mind.  When Handsome Coffee Roasters opened in downtown LA, I witnessed an entire community coming together, and I finally got it.  I began to understand coffee.  And through coffee I began to explore cities and meet other like-minded individuals.  It is no coincidence that both areas like SOMA in San Francisco and Culver City in Los Angeles are becoming hubs of some of the most disruptive businesses, and at the same time have the best coffee to offer.

    I recently took a trip back to Hong Kong where I was born.  Most people know Hong Kong as the high rise jungle.  But they rarely get a deeper look into what makes this city special. The spaces in between.  The life that happens all around.  Whenever I return, I become hyper aware of all the nuances that I didn’t notice before.  I begin to explore everything, and this time through coffee.

    Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

    The many characters of coffee are often simplified by being strong or weak.  When I finally started to explore the tastes of coffee, I began to notice unique notes that characterized different regions of the world.  I began to develop a repertoire of notes that I can pull from and compare.  Diving deeper into a cup granted me a heightened sense of everything else around me.  And my daily adventures are always a cup away.

    In a way, coffee has granted me a fresh perspective of home.  Home is not where you live but where you belong. What was ordinary is not so ordinary.  Everything is amplified. Every alley becomes beautiful in its own way.
