Video of the saruSURF roll-up-SUP® Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board

sarusurf lent us their roll-up-SUP® Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board for a review. We should have the review in a week or two but I can tell you so far it is by far the best inflatable paddle board we have ever ridden. (and we have tried 3 other popular brands) The 7.5" standard fin makes all the difference as it rides, tracks, and maneuvers like a "real" hard stand up paddle board. Plus they put a lot of rise in the nose rocker as well as the tail rocker. In fact its so easy to pack, setup, and ride that I like it better than my hard SUP. Below is the sarusurf promo video to give you an idea of what it is like:

Honda Fit Hybrid Japanese Pricing + Date Announced

Honda Japan has finally released the price and sales date for the new "Hybrid Honda Fit". I was holding off on buying one of these when they were announced last year - I'm glad I did.

Prices will start at around 1.59 million yen (approx. $18,500 US). With the government rebates applied I assume... this is only 300,000 yen ($4650 US) more than the gasoline model.

From what they posted on JapanToday, the new model will get approx 30Km/L (up from the current 24Km/L). Japan sales date should be October 2010, US sales later in 2011.

Toyota has also announced a compact hybrid for the Japan market in 2011, price also around 1.5 million yen.
