Quincy x MTK

Surfer Quincy Davis is your summer dream. A born and raised Montauk local, surfing was a family affair. Her mom, dad and brother all surf and got her on the waves at age 7. At 23, she has those sunny surfer girl looks (and tresses!) that come only from years spent in the ocean. A pro for a while, Quincy no longer surfs competitively but still embodies the surf lifestyle. Her style is cool and effortless with that endless summer vibe. A perennial favorite of all the Hamptons summer magazines, she’s the girl we want to be.

You may not be able to surf like Quincy, but you can dress like you do. Quincy x MTK opened this summer in Montauk and features a curated selection of all her favorite surf and swim apparel, beach accessories, beauty products, and other accoutrements. It’s set in a perfect little shingled space on Main Street she’s always loved. Her brother’s healthy noshery, Happy Bowls, also happens to be next door.

We hit the beach with Quincy to find out more about the shop and her recent collaboration with Cynthia Rowley on the hot new Q x ROWLEY wetsuit featured here…

From the laps in the pool, to aqua running, to open water swimming…

we’ve got all the cool gear you’ll love to keep wet workouts fun.

C’mon and jump in!

 
I have not had my typical sporty summer of running, stand up paddleboarding, surfing, and cycling. I’ve had a stress fracture in my foot that has kept me from many of the sports I usually enjoy. The good news is it has opened up all sorts of new sports — all in the water!

Swimming truly is the sport of a lifetime. Non weight-bearing, it allows you to do the cardio, strength, and endurance workouts that injury or age prevents. I’ve seen that first hand with my new silver haired fitness tribe in the Deep Water Running class at Alphalt Green, where I’ve gotten a preview of my workouts at 80! It’s become my Soul Cycle replacement for the summer giving me that group exercise motivation and comradery I love.

Then there has been the solitary and meditative discipline of swimming — open water in particular. I’ve always been a pool swimmer, but this summer I’ve conquered my fear of what lies beneath in murky water with an experienced training partner, and discovered the goal achieving satisfaction of swimming to a destination – like a long distance run!

The Duct Tape Invitational

 

 
The first ever women’s edition of the The Vans Joel Tudor Duct Tape Invitational debuted yesterday at the 2018 Vans US Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach, CA. Hosted in partnership with the largest action sports festival in the world, 16 of the world’s best female longboarders were invited to showcase their unique style and innovation on the famed shores of Surf City, USA. Founded by one of the longboarding’s most recognized surfers, the Vans Joel Tudor Duct Tape Invitational is a celebration of creativity in the most traditional form of the sport.

Joel Tudor, the event’s namesake and originator, is often regarded as the style master of longboard surfing. He won the U.S. Open of Longboarding nine times, including six in a row from 1995 through 2000. Despite his success however, Tudor grew dissatisfied the “high performance” direction of the sport that emerged in the 1990s. Instead of the classic nose-riding style of the 1960s and ’70s, longboarders began trying to imitate their shortboard counterparts — blurring the distinction between the two forms of the sport.

The Vans Joel Tudor Duct Tape Invitational has redefined the standard of longboarding with a return to its roots, rewarding those with an affinity for the grace, style and creativity for which the sport is known. Reflecting that style and creativity is the poster and artwork for both the men’s and women’s contest created by Geoff Mcfetridge. The simplicity and innovation shown by literally using duct tape for the waves, in combination with the black cut out shapes of the surfers, embodies the essence of longboarding and highlights the originality these surfers display even on the smallest of waves.

The contest is comprised of 16 invitees competing on traditional “logs” — single fin and 9’2 length minimum. There is a no-interference rule and surfers are encouraged to ride the same wave to see what they can create together. As an added incentive, additional prize money is awarded for best shared wave. Dedicated longboarding pioneers and true style mavens such as former world champions Honolua Blomfield and Jen Smith, respected shaper Ashley Lloyd, icon Kassia Meador, local Karina Rozunko and are competing in the women’s debut of the event showing the world how the ladies get it done.

Surf Tesla

 

LIMTED EDITION TESLA SURFBOARD

For those who have dreamed of owning a Tesla – a surfboard that is – here it is! Available today is the new Limited Edition Tesla Surfboard, designed in collaboration with Lost Surfboards and famed surfboard shaper Matt “Mayhem” Biolos.

Constructed from a lightweight “Black Dart” carbon fiber, the Tesla Surfboard features a mix of the same high-quality matte and gloss finishes used on Tesla cars. Along with tonal logos in a subtle contrast gloss, Tesla red coats the underside of the board. Measuring 6’8”, the board is designed to fit the Tesla Model S, X, and 3, accommodating it comfortably on the inside or outside of the vehicle.

Each surfboard will be custom made to order, and only 200 are being produced. Priced affordably at $1500, unfortunately you’ll need to keep dreaming about owning that Tesla. Not surprisingly, the edition is already sold out.

 

The Custom Smoothie

 

 
How many days a week do you do cardio? How many are strength training? Do you eat meat or are you vegan? Are your goals weight loss or building muscle? How many servings of fresh fruit and vegetables do you eat daily? These are just of the few questions asked as you go through the iFit Nourish questionnaire to determine the perfect shake for you.

There are a plethora of protein powders on the market, and one size does not fit all. What works for a bodybuilder looking to bulk up, does not for a woman looking to slim down. With a blend of protein, carbs, and fat, each iFit shake packet is custom blended for your body type, fitness goals, and nutritional needs. Delivered monthly in a subscription service, most importantly the shakes are delicious too!

I make a protein shake for breakfast every morning after I work out, and look for a nutritionally dense protein powder sourced from high-quality ingredients that tastes great, blends icy smooth, and keeps me satisfied all morning long. The protein options in an iFit shake are a dairy-based whey, or a vegetable blend of brown rice, hemp and pea. As compared with a single-source protein, these help provide higher levels of amino acids for better muscle recovery and growth.

So for this cardio junkie editor, it’s Formula 33747 with 230 calories and 21g of whey protein (I find it blends better than vegetable), 35g of carbs, 9g of fiber, and 2.5g of fat. It’s loaded with calcium, folate, potassium, and other vitamins and minerals targeted to a woman my age. A shake can reveal a lot about a person. What does yours say about you?
