Pack your bags, everyone, we’re going on holiday to swim with the jellyfish! Sounds bizarre (terrifying, if, like me, you’re afraid of jellies), but in fact there’s a stretch of water on Eil Malk island in Palau that contains millions of golden jellyfish.
There comes a time in every child’s life when they have to suck it up and learn how to swim. In some cases, it can be a very scary event (I’m having flashbacks), but in order to make them feel a little more confident, SwimFin has made really cool shark fin flotation devices to get them from the shallow end of the pool, to the deepest.
Australia Day is the day to celebrate being an Aussie while eating a sausage breakfast and building sand castles. But what if you were able to grab a robot that could design the sand into intricate images of Disney characters? You’d definitely win first prize at the sand castle competition. So here it is.

That US photographer Donald Miralle Jr. is at one with water — he’s an elite paddleboard racer and lives in the San Diego beach community of Leucadia — shows. He took this evocative shot of Ironman competitors swimming over a school of fish at Kailua Bay in Kona, Hawaii, which in turn won the World […]
Initially, one of the attractions of being in Bern was the Alps, snowboarding in winter, and all that. What I didn’t bank on was the unique summer swimming experience in the fast flowing, glacial river that runs around the capital. It’s a bizarre but blissful ritual; on a really hot day, tens of thousands of […]
