4M FUNCTION, LLC Announces the Launch of the Multi-Functional SURF-O-MAT (TM) Surf Pack

ORANGE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA, April 4, 2016 — /EPR NETWORK/ — 4M FUNCTION, LLC is excited to announce the launch of SURF-O-MAT TM. The patented design transforms the utility of a back pack, wetsuit change mat, beach towel, surfboard sling carry bag, and beach tent shade umbrella into a single multi-function product. It is simple to use, easy to clean and built to perform. The official launch date for the SURF-O-MAT is April 1, 2016.

Surf-O-Mat_Logo_RGB

4M FUNCTION, LLC believes the SURF-O-MAT is built for serious surf adventures or quick surf sessions. The four main components of the design combine form and function that no other surf specific product deliver in a single product.

Surf-O-Mat

BEACH CHANGE MAT
Surf-O-Mat beach mat round shape has more surface area than a traditional beach towel for sitting or sunbathing at the beach. It uses a cushy waterproof EVA foam surface for that won’t collect sand and dries instantly. Multiple pockets provide a discreet way to stash sunglasses, wallet, cell phone, and surf wax while in the water. Standing on Surf-O-Mat makes changing into a wetsuit on a sandy beach, rocky trail, or asphalt parking lot clean and comfortable. After a surf session, pack away a soggy wetsuit to keep the car dry. Cleaning Surf-O-Mat is easy, just hose off and hang dry.

BACKPACK BAG
Surf-O-Mat backpack bag provides a flexible method for transporting gear to the beach including wetsuit, hats, sandals, swim fins, drink bottles, radios, etc. Surf-O-Mat’s fold pattern also expands to accommodate larger items that wouldn’t normally fit in a traditional backpack. A functional shoulder strap allows for personalization. Convert from messenger bag style to backpack harness or quick carry handle simply by changing the strap’s attachment points.

SURFBOARD CARRY SLING
Surf-O-Mat surfboard sling provides a versatile way to carry surfboards. A comfortable shoulder strap makes it easy to carry the board to the beach, while the EVA foam surface protects from dings while in transit. Surf-O-Mat’s open ended design adapts to fit all board sizes including short boards, longboards, fishes, eggs, body boards, kite boards, SUP boards and paddles. Surf-O-Mat could also help carry firewood, food coolers, beach chairs, oversized gear or other hard to haul items.

SHADE SHELTER BEACH TENT
Surf-O-Mat shade shelter provides a new way to deflect sun or rain. Surf-O-Mat’s materials are opaque, virtually eliminating harmful UV rays while its wing pocket design allows for easy adjustment to any sun angle. Lightweight tent poles deliver quick set-up and more stability than traditional beach umbrellas in windy conditions and waterproof construction allows for use in rain. Surf-O-Mat’s grommets and clips can be used in creative configurations to tie onto trees, truck beds, picnic tables, bicycles and more when shelter is needed.

4M FUNCTION, LLC is pleased to announce the launch of SURF-O-MAT.COM, an commerce web site supporting the sales, marketing and distribution of 4M FUNCTION, LLC products. The official launch date SURF-O-MAT.COM is April 1, 2016

New “Grand Slam Safety” to Showcase at Little League Intermediate World Series

Baseball fans will be heading to Livermore soon for the Little League Intermediate World Series, July 29 – August 4, at Max Baer Park. Also celebrating the event will be Grand Slam Safety, a new company dedicated to developing innovative products to keep players safe.

This is especially timely as the growing popularity of youth baseball and other sports raises concerns over player injuries, including concussions. Grand Slam Safety’s popular safety fencing protects players while giving them a true stadium experience.

At a special two-day exhibition in the park on August 2 and August 3, the company invites visitors to learn more about its Little League-licensed products and new West Coast office. West Coast Sales Director Jeanette Chamberlain will be on hand to demonstrate the safety fencing and discuss Grand Slam’s solution to bringing home run excitement back into the game.

Increasing Safety and Fun
The need for a different kind of safety fence became clear to Grand Slam’s founders after a conversation with a local parent who worried about the safety of an unbounded outfield. They quickly realized that standard outfield fencing options could pose an even greater safety risk than no fence at all.

“As we began to research commercially available fencing options for outfield fences, we were unable to find any that we considered safe enough to bring well within the field of play,” says Grand Slam Safety CEO Bob Lyndaker. Existing fences were generally made from chain link or solid material and were located well beyond the edge of the outfield to reduce the likelihood of serious injury.

By creating a soft and flexible yet high-strength and durable configuration, Grand Slam Safety allows fencing to be placed at the actual bounds of the outfield without contributing to player injuries or impeding the flow of the game.

“The unique tensioned mesh design of the Grand Slam Safety Fence allows a player to run directly into the fence at full speed with minimal chance of injury,” says Chamberlain. “This innovation in outfield fencing allows a more exciting and complete game experience for players and fans without the normal injury risks.”

Grand Slam’s safety fence, which is made in the U.S., appeals to coaches, athletic directors and parents at all levels of youth baseball. “Not only does the fence add the look and feel of a stadium, but it also reduces the risk of injury to our athletes,” says Chris Villiere, softball coach at South Lewis Central School District in Turin, New York. “This is essential at a time in athletics when concussions have risen to the forefront of safety concerns in athletes of all ages.”

Simple Fix for Crowded, Multi-Sport Fields
The safety fence has a number of additional attributes that make it attractive for teams that operate outside of permanent, walled stadiums. The removable version of the fence can be installed or removed within an hour and is completely customizable to the size and shape of a given field, including fields that adhere to Little League dimensions. It is also easily outfitted with customized numbering to denote field distances. Grand Slam Safety provides customers with a full-scope “transport kit,” including turf inserts that conceal the fenceposts’ mounting holes, to assist with moving and storage.

To offset the cost of the fence’s installation and ensure that its clients enjoy a steady stream of revenue for its entire lifespan, Grand Slam Safety makes it easy to attach advertisements and banners at any point along its length. Thanks to a space-efficient design that requires minimal storage, the fence is ideal for municipal and school fields that host different sports at different times of the week or year.

More information about Grand Slam Safety and its line of sports safety products is available at http://www.grandslamsafety.com. CEO Bob Lyndaker welcomes media inquiries: 315-301-4039 or sales@grandslamsafety.com.

Golf Care Unveil Viral Videos

With the Ryder Cup just weeks away the UK’s largest golf insurer releases ‘Gallacher’s Golf Gaffs’

The UK’s largest specialist golf insurer, Golf Care, has released a series of creative viral videos featuring 3-time Ryder Cup Captain Bernard Gallacher with the aim of providing a light-hearted insight into the world of golf insurance. The first of five videos in the series is titled “Missile Madness” and features two golfers getting struck by a relentless flow of golf balls, whilst Gallacher is interviewed by TV cameras.

The remaining videos in the series will be unveiled over the course of next five weeks, themed to highlight the various upsides of golf insurance and the dangers that exist on-and-off the golf course. Without giving too much away, the other videos are titled ‘One-Shot Wonder’, ‘Golf Bag Baddy’, ‘Car Park Capers’ and‘Talking Balls’. Initially they will be sent to Golf Care’s extensive membership database and hosted on the Golf Care homepage, but will later be available to share via Golf Care’s YouTube page: http://www.youtube.com/user/GolfCareUK.

They have been released on the back of Golf Care’s recent announcement that they are on track for a second successive Record Year after witnessing an upward trend in policy sales throughout the course of 2012, with the month of June setting a new record.

“We’re hoping to demonstrate the lighter-side of golf insurance, without diluting the main message,” noted John Woosey, Managing Director, Golf Care. “Following the TV campaign on Sky Sports this year, Golf Care has a great presence across all the main media platforms. Naturally, that will really help promote the brand, but also the affordability and ease of being appropriately insured.”

Golf Care policies are available in-store at American Golf and Direct Golf UK, as well as online at www.golfcare.co.uk. From just £22.99 all golfers can be instantly covered before their next round of golf, including Personal Liability up to£5,000,000 and Personal Accident up to £50,000. In addition, Golf Care offers equipment cover against theft, loss, or damage on a ‘new for old’ basis up to£5,000, hole-in-one cover for up to £200, as well as coverage for damage to third party property. With 24-hour and worldwide cover options also available, policies can be tailored to an individual golfer’s needs.

Splash And Relax Bring Air Hockey To The Table

Splash and Relax are always increasing their range of great relaxing products and one of the best ways for the sporting activity of a household in the long winter months without braving the winter’s storms is by playing one of the many table games, which are available. Splash and Relax have worked hard to provide a range of good games tables and Air Hockey is becoming a firm favourite in many places.

This is a great game that can be played by 2 or 4 players and can bring in the whole of the family so that it becomes an inclusive family entertainment. Hockey may not be a standard British sport and especially the version which resembles ice hockey but most people have seen it on the television and soon become addicted to the game once they have played it for a while. It is also a game that can be played equally as well by the ladies. This sport requires skill and agility and a modicum of energy and will bring a great deal of sporting combat as well as a great deal of fun and enjoyment.

Splash and Relax have tried to pick a full range of air hockey tables from the small 3 feet fold away table for 2 people to the Vortex 7 feet Air Table for 2 or 4 people, with a cost range from £50 to £500 so that hopefully there is something for everyone. The larger units will fit into a games or activities room and come with all the modern additions.

The Vortex Air Hockey Table provides a great playing table with an air supply that gives great fast puck movement that will really test the skill of the players and make for a very energetic game. The 7 foot long table comes with an electronic scoring system that audibly tells you the score. It is a very presentable table finished in black with chrome effect corners and piping. The playing table looks excellent and will certainly take the players efforts and resist damage from pucks and strikers. The great thing about this game is that it does not require a vast space around the table in order to play the game, unlike snooker or pool the strikers are small and hand held and the players stand up to the table and whilst they require some space behind the table it is limited and the table can be accommodated in a standard sized room. Splash and Relax have recognised that space is often a limiting factor in deciding whether to get a games table and this sport certainly fulfils that requirement.

Splash and Relax – http://www.splashandrelax.co.uk – always try to make things easy and whilst many things that they supply are delivered to the door to reduce the cost they take a great deal of care in trying to offer a setting up service to the customer for many products. This service is great in taking out those annoying problems found in instruction books and provides a good deal of comfort by allowing the product to be erected and tested before it is passed over to the family.

SportsMark selects WinMagic Encryption technology to protect critical data at London 2012 Olympic Games

WinMagic Inc., the global innovator in disk encryption, today announced SportsMark has chosen WinMagic’s SecureDoc data security and encryption software to protect sensitive corporate hospitality program data for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Of the many events SportsMark will be involved in this year, including Super Bowl, The Masters, and the America’s Cup World Series, the London 2012 Olympic Games will be a pinnacle event. SportsMark has been preparing for this momentous event for over four years, working side by side with its clients to create unparalleled guest experiences and optimize their brand building and sales objectives. SportsMark’s clients will host more than 45,000 guests throughout the Olympic and Paralympic Games, working with a staff of over 1,000 and managing tens of thousands of Olympic event tickets on behalf of their 15 clients.

“We’ve been working with SportsMark for quite some time and we’re very pleased that they selected SecureDoc as their data encryption solution to protect the personal information of all the guests they’ll be hosting during the London 2012 Olympic Games,” said Mark Hickman, worldwide vice-president of sales at WinMagic Inc. “As an existing customer, SportsMark recognized the ease of use and flexibility of SecureDoc and we were more than happy to help ensure this continued for a project of this importance and profile.”

SportsMark’s information services team determined that they required a rapid OS and encryption deployment ready for a highly mobile and diverse workforce to securing log in onto any of their laptops at any of the locations.

“WinMagic SecureDoc was clearly the answer to our requirements,” said Scott Shuemake, systems engineer at SportsMark. “We needed an encryption solution that we could quickly and easily implement, manage centrally and provide all temporary staff with access to all the devices, so we had the flexibility to move staff around the hospitality venues across London, sometimes at short notice.”

SportsMark Group has contracted 1000 temporary hospitality event staff to work for the duration of Olympic and Paralympic Games in more than 15 pop-up offices around central London. These staff will be supplied with rented laptops that require the hard drive to be fully encrypted.

The technical solution consisted of 300 temporary licenses of WinMagic SecureDoc and SecureDoc Enterprise Server to install the SecureDoc packages and provide recovery. SportsMark also utilized WinMagic consultancy services to ensure the smoothest and quickest deployment in the fastest possible timeframe. At the end of the project, SportsMark will take advantage of SecureDoc’s Crypto erase feature to decommission the devices used for the event.

There’s no need to be caught out without comprehensive cricket insurance, thanks to Insure4Sport’s Cricket Care

Cricket might be looked on as a genteel sport, which is played at a leisurely pace, but the risks which players and coaches expose themselves to could very easily bowl them a googly.

That’s why experienced sports insurance provider Insure4Sport has launched the first policy of its kind, Cricket Care, especially intended to give players, coaches and other team staff the reassurance of extensive cover for themselves and their equipment.

Cricket Care is powered by Insure4Sport, who bring into play their experience of negotiating top-quality cover for those who play, coach and teach a wide range of other sports.

Whether you’re a Sunday league player, are climbing the ladder of the sport with ambitions of making it to test level, or are involved behind the scenes with a club, you’ll appreciate that playing the game comes with certain risks.

Just ask former Nottinghamshire and England wicketkeeper Bruce French. Often acknowledged as one of the sport’s most accident-prone players, French was hit by an unbelievably unlucky sequence of events when on tour in Pakistan with England in 1987-88.

He was hit on the head by a ball thrown onto a practice field by a spectator, but then, on his way to hospital was hit by a car as he walked to casualty. After having stitches, he returned to the ground, only to then bang his head on a low light fitting.

“No one would ever suggest that any cricketer could be as unlucky as French,” said Andy Hagger at Insure4Sport, “but any injury can seriously mar your enjoyment of the game, and even possibly have repercussions which might affect your earnings.

“That’s why we set out to offer a range of dedicated cricket insurance policies. It means that, if the worst should happen, you can now rest assured that you, your team and your equipment need have no worries should an accident befall you.”

The cover offered has been specially designed to take account of the most common risks involved in cricket at any level, and can be available instantly when you buy a cricket insurance policy online.

So put yourself, your team-mates and your club in safe hands, and contact Cricket Care today. We’ll find the right policy for your needs, with no nasty spin guaranteed!

Let’s get unity in the community, and help in educating our youth to become responsible and productive members of our society.”

Former England international Earl Barrett, one of Kick It Out’s leading ambassadors, has been impressed by the commitment shown by United to spread awareness of the campaign. He said: “Kick It Out is proud to be affiliated to Coral Springs United.

“This is one of the first youth soccer programs to promote the campaign’s message in the United States, and the club deserves praise for spreading awareness around the importance of equality and diversity. Coral’s projects are further proof that football is able to act as a key engagement tool when it comes to educating youngsters, and bringing people together from all different backgrounds.”

For further information on the One Game, One Community Trophy, Tampa Bay Rowdies at 7:30 pm. We hope to have a great attendance and support from the crowd on that day

Swapping The Road For The Carpet!

Fair weather cyclists have been spear-heading the latest fitness craze of “stationary biking” in the privacy of their own homes.

High Street store Halfords has discovered a startling rise in sales of Turbo Trainers as more and more people discover the benefits of the clever device that turns an everydaybike into a fitness machine.

Cheaper than gym membership, far less intrusive than a cross-trainer, treadmill or conventional exercise bike; latest figures from the cycle, leisure and car parts retailer show sales of the machines more than doubled when the cold, wet, weather pushed all but the most committed cyclists indoors.

Asked where the preferred home for the turbo trainer was, 80 per cent said the garage, 10 per cent a spare room, 5 per cent the kitchen or dining room while 5 per cent admitted to using the main living room and exercised while watching TV.

Halfords cycle expert Justin Stevenson said: “It is no secret that the number of people cycling goes up as the weather gets warmer and down as it gets chillier, but the new generation of excellent cycle trainers, with great stability and different levels of magnetic resistance to mimic harder rides, have been keeping people occupied.

“In these uncertain economic times people are looking to get the best use possible out of the equipment they have and turbo trainers are a great way of ensuring you can keep your fitness levels up by cycling even when you don’t feel like going out in the cold and wet. An added bonus is that they take up little space when not in use.”

The new changes include a fresh design which is fast loading and easy to navigate. This is coupled with close integration with the internet’s top social networks including Facebook, Twitter and Google+ which makes it easier than ever for fans to share their views and content with other fans from across the globe.

Lead project designer James Scott who was in charge of the overhaul had this to say about the new look LoveFooty.net: “We had to completely overhaul the site design and we gave it a fresh lick of colour as the old site was rather bland, just in time for the African Cup of Nations 2012.”

Team Spirit Australia Launch New Soccer Product Line & Relaunch Website

Team Spirit Australia is using the launch of their new website to announce their entrance in to the custom made soccer and football team wear market. The website has undergone a significant upgrade including new designs across rugby, soccer and school verticals, a revamped ‘request a quote’ tool and social media integration.

Team Spirit have been supplying high-quality, custom rugby jerseys to Australian and international rugby clubs and schools for over eight years, and expect that this experience will be invaluable in their new venture.

“We have been making custom-made rugby gear for a long time now, and as you can imagine, it needs be extremely durable. We are taking all our know-how from rugby and leveraging it in our custom soccer jerseys to ensure our product is second-to-none”, said James Lancaster, Director at Team Spirit.

Team Spirit is also repositioning their partner site, www.year12jerseys.com.au, to sit under the Team Spirit umbrella. Team Spirit have been producing custom school jerseys under the Year12Jerseys brand for over eight years, and now feel it makes sense to integrate them.

“It makes sense to operate under the one brand in future. We can concentrate our resources in to the one brand and achieve a better outcome,” said Lancaster.

Team Spirit also have plans to introduce a “build your own” tool in January 2012, where clubs and schools will be able to design their own rugby, school and soccer garments and receive an automated quote with ease.
