  • JECKYBENG – an urban outdoor brand from bavaria for quality goods to venture out. He works with a team of sustainability geeks, Journalists, Textile engineers, Entrepreneurs, Photographers and storytellers. What they all have in common is the love of being in nature. We wanted to go on a big trip for a year. For both of us the time at that moment was perfect for it – Jo quit his job, Cozy finished his studies. So went to latin america for a year to travel, surf and learn things about real latin american food. We always loved cooking and a surf & travel cooking book seemed to be the perfect fusion from all our passions. We needed a name for the project that could fit to other projects in the future as well so we named it Salt & Silver. Salt for the salty water in the ocean, the salt you use in the kitchen – Silver for the surface of the ocean when the sun shines or the knives and pots you use in the kitchen.

  • JECKYBENG - a bavarian outdoor&board sports brand and blog and manufacturer who produces awesome stuff for life's big playground. The love of nature and an air of adventure – that’s what will be waiting for you once you get your comfortable ass off the couch… The taste of salt on your lips as the sun drifts towards the horizon and you’re still hungry for the waves. The creaking of the deep snow as you take one step after another and the untouched powder descent is calling your name. The smell of the pinewood on the wood trail as the golden autumn sun is shining through the branches. Almost indescribable moments out in nature, during which you can smell the scent of freedom all around you. Enjoy nature, respect it and keep your eyes open for the essential things in life. dventure and Surf. inspiration, blog, lifestyle, Handmade Surftools in Bavaria, Handmade, Tools, Bayern, Bavaria, Wax comb, Photography, Fotografie, Adventure, outdoors, outside, Abenteuer, Product Testing, Greenroomvoice, Transparency Tool 2016, surfing, surf, sup, sup paddling, patagonia wetsuit, yulex, van, vanlife camping, playa vega, cantabria, spain, camp, friends, pals, via norte, From Santander to San Vincente de la Barquera, Cantabria has a lot to offer for week-end explorers like us, our appetite kept growing from one beach to another so we pushed all the way to Ribadesella. Kun_tiqi, Balsawood,Surfboards, Surfing, Laredo, Yulex® is a natural rubber cactus plant and a very innovative and progressive step to replace the neoprene. We tend to call wetsuits “neoprene”, but not the whole wetsuit consists of this progressive and environmentally challenging material. In fact it makes up about 40% of the whole wetsuit weight. But this environmentally critical material has been replaced by Patagonia with 85% natural rubber (Yulex®) and 15% synthetic polymers to keep it UV resistant and more durable. The Yulex® is FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified, originating from well-managed plantations. The assembly facilities of the Patagonia wetsuits are audited for social standards. The lining, which is about 10% of the wetsuit, is made from recycled polyester. This combination of material is a huge step in the right direction, keeping the harm to the environment as limited as possible, like Patagonia promised us. There is still no end of life solution for wetsuits. Of course you can always cut them up, Patagonia makes beer can holders out of the old and useless pieces, they can get their hands on- and that is certainly better, then burning them or throwing them into landfill. So, bring it back, if you don’t need it anymore. But industry wide the search for a recycling method is on.

He works with a team of sustainability geeks, Journalists, Textile engineers, Entrepreneurs, Photographers and storytellers. What they all have in common is the love of being in nature. Exposure to nature in the wild has shaped his photography. His keen eye and fine judgment have matured as much from landscapes as frompeople and set pieces. His pictures never clamour, but do speak a soundless language, clear and direct. Discreet but penetrating vision brings them to life. A native of the Bernese Oberland, Bruno Augsburger studied photography in Zurich and Leipzig and now lives in Zurich. His creative work sparks repeated expeditions to the vastnesses of Scandinavia and Canada.

  • JECKYBENG - a bavarian outdoor&board sports brand and blog and manufacturer who produces awesome stuff for life's big playground. The love of nature and an air of adventure – that’s what will be waiting for you once you get your comfortable ass off the couch… The taste of salt on your lips as the sun drifts towards the horizon and you’re still hungry for the waves.

The smell of the pinewood on the wood trail as the golden autumn sun is shining through the branches. Almost indescribable moments out in nature, during which you can smell the scent of freedom all around you.
