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.


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 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.

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.

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.

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

Boundary Waters Resort & Marina: TriToon Boats – Best of Both Worlds!

Spring is here and soon the lakes around North Georgia will be hopping with water sports enthusiast of all kinds. Families that enjoy water tubing, water skiing, wake boarding, fishing, cruising, and just lounging about, are looking into new boats, used boats, and upgrading the water craft they already own. One popular option in the past 10 years has been the revival of the pontoon boat, but with a 3rd log, or pontoon, in the middle. This 3rd pontoon, or TriToon, gives the boat more lift, stability, and with planning strakes – SPEED!

It used to be that comfort came at the cost of fun for the family when choosing pontoon boats over more traditional ski boats or bass boats. While the slower passengers enjoyed the easy and stable ride of the pontoon, the fishermen enjoyed the platform and shallow draw of the pontoon for all of the leisure activities they excel at. Unfortunately for the more adventurous, most pontoons that your grandfather enjoyed weren’t great at pulling adult water skiers or even tubing. At a not so brisk 8 knots, the little ones could still enjoy the adventure of “getting out there” and being pulled through some great scenery on Lake Chatuge. But, the older kids and the adults alike, were hard to throw off a tube or intimidate with rough water even at WOT (wide open throttle). Then the TriToons appeared. With planning strakes on some models to provide a ski-boat style ride at WOT, and motors ranging upwards of 250hp, and even some with inboard/outboard – stern drive motors, these new beasts of the lake can bring a water wedgie to the most hardened lake sports enthusiast! Want to slow it down a little, back off the 35 knot speed run and settle into a nice leisure cruise? The TriToon maintains the pontoons signature smooth, stable ride ride once the throttle is brought back to a more conservative level. None of the choppy/sloppy ride of a bass boat trying to make its way through a busy channel at 1500rpms, but a more relaxed floating living room that slips through the chop like pontoon should. Fishing? When you’ve skimmed up to weeds with only a few inches of draft, the signature North Georgia bass and schools of pan fish won’t be any further away than quick flick of your wrist with the cheapest rod/reel you own.

Want to experience a TriToon for yourself? Head up to North Georgia and visit the #1 JC Pontoon dealer in the United States, Boundary Waters Resort & Marina in Hiawassee Georgia. You can’t test drive one on Interstate 285 in Atlanta, but you can see their boats on Lake Chatuge. If you walked on one at the Boat Show, go try it out on the water. A short drive from Ashville, Knoxville, Charlotte, Atlanta, or just about anywhere in the South East.

Triathlon Becoming The Fastest Growing Mainstream Sport In The World

Since it’s beginnings in the late 1970’s triathlon has steadily grown to the point where it has become one of the fastest growing mainstream sports in the world.

There is no doubt that it’s spectacular growth can be attributed to the fact that it is a sport for virtually people of all ages and all levels of athletic ability. It knows no ethnic or gender boundaries and includes people from every level of society. It is not unusual at all for a housewife and mother of three to be in a triathlon and find herself sharing the Ironman course with a CEO of a huge corporation, a millionaire, a famous Hollywood star or a pro athlete.

Triathlon truly is for everyone and has so much to offer all those who decide to get off the couch and dust off their running shoes, buy themselves a road bike, and head out to the local pool to learn how to swim.


In this day and age, kids are in desperate need of balance in their lives. They have been born into an age of high technology and fast food that has proven to have some serious ramifications when it comes to the physical and emotional health of kids around the world.

Too much time spent on home computers, lap-tops, cell phones and text-messaging combined with little regard to healthy food choices is far too often leading to obesity and health issues among teens and pre-teens.

It is simply unacceptable to have pre-teens dealing with type-2 diabetes simply because of lifestyle and those in the health industry are scrambling to come to grips with the problem.

Triathlon could well be the answer for providing kids an avenue for adding balance to their lives. It seems that many parents are beginning to see the value of the sport as well.

Kids as young as six-years-old can take part in one of the hundreds of kids triathlons that are springing up all over North America and indeed around the world. If they can’t make the school team they no longer have to resign themselves to the sidelines cheering on others.

Triathlon for kids is all about having fun. As they get older the distances they swim, bike and run increase incrementally. Youth have the option to take the sport as far as they want. As far as Simon Whitfield perhaps who was a tri-kid and went on to be an Olympic champion in the sport.

SilverDoor’s Head of PR and Marketing, Marnie Delaney-Parker said: “It was a great day out, the sun was shining and everyone was in good spirits. It’s a shame we couldn’t win the first prize too but at least we managed to come away with something albeit the losers prize. Everyone showed real determination and healthy competitiveness. We’re in practice for next year already.”

The event, the first of what is hoped to become an annual event on the business travel calendar, was attended by over 250 people. Companies that took part included Eurostar, Continental Airlines, The Business Travel & Meetings Show, OAG and Intel. Drawbridge provided shuttle transfers on the day from surrounding rail stations to the Oakley Court Hotel.

Diane Steed, Head of Sales & Marketing for ITM said of the Team Activity Group run event: “Everyone has thoroughly enjoyed themselves with the participating companies seeing this as a great way to ‘team-build’. There was a lot of friendly competition out there but also some real determination from some teams to see off their business travel competitors & industry peers – I think everyone had a really good time”.
