Tommy Caldwell and partner Kevin Jorgeson just completed the first free ascent of the Dawn Wall in Yosemite Valley, arguably the hardest rock climb in the world.
We would like to congratulate Tommy Caldwell and his partner Kevin Jorgeson on the first free ascent of the Dawn Wall in Yosemite Valley. Tommy first conceived the idea of the climb in 2007 and, seven years later, summited the route on the afternoon of January 14, 2015 after spending 19 days on the wall—and with much of the climbing world watching the last pitches via a live video stream.
Explore the seas like never before in the Deepflight Super Falcon Mark II Personal Submarine. Designed around the pilot, this two-person submersible is powered by a highly-efficient brushless DC truster and a redundant lithium-iron-phosphate battery system, giving it a cruising speed of 2-6 knots. Thanks to a form-fitted composite structure, it can dive down to depths of over 100 meters, and it also offers a fly-by-wire flight control system, adjustable carbon fiber seats, an integrated heads-up display with an artificial horizon, and a positively buoyant design that will always bring you back to the surface.
Costa reintroduced The Watery Rave to the blogosphere this week, turning the website into an action-focused central hub of sport fishing conservation news and articles. Each month, Costa partners including, OCEARCH, The Billfish Foundation (TBF), Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership (TRCP), International Game Fish Association (IGFA), Coastal Conservation Association (CCA), Trout Unlimited (TU) and Bonefish & Tarpon Trust (BTT) will post blog updates on issues affecting their fisheries, motivating readers to play a more active role in protecting the world’s waters.
The Watery Rave will serve as a non-biased aggregator of articles from each of the participating partners, providing an incredible wealth of information to anglers, conservationists, scientists and more. Articles will highlight conservation work being done to protect fisheries around the world, from oyster bed restoration efforts happening in the Gulf of Mexico, to shark tagging reports from the deep ocean, to permit study research updates from Belize.
“Fisheries all over the planet need our help from pollution, overfishing and more. All of the groups contributing to the site are committed to sustainable sport fishing practices, and want to encourage anglers to become more involved to protect the fish we love,” said Al Perkinson, vice president of marketing for Costa. “We created The Watery Rave as a central place where people can come educate themselves about the challenges facing our waters right now, and give them specific things they can do to help make a difference.”
