    This is a video containing twenty minutes of kite flying footage edited down to a single minute by superimposing the kite's movement on top of itself over and over again. It is really mesmerizing to watch. Like, so mesmerizing I actually forgot about all my problems for a min... / Continue →

    This is a series of geometric sandcastles built by sculptor Calvin Seibert (links to his Flickr with a ton more high-res shots) on the beaches of Hawaii. They are most impressive. You know, I built a sandcastle once when I was in Florida on vacation with my family. I remembe... / Continue →

    This is a short video from a Blue Angels flight demonstration over the weekend in Pensacola, Florida when Blue Angel #5 does a low fly-by and sends all the tents and umbrellas on the beach soaring. Amazingly, nobody was stabbed with a giant umbrella lawn dart. I would have lo... / Continue →

    This is a video shot on Huntington Beach of a stunt kite pilot taunting a kid with his insane kite control skills. I didn't even know half of those moves were possible to perform with a kite. And apparently neither did Benjamin Franklin, which is why his bag of kite tricks co... / Continue →

    Note: Slightly larger version HERE. This is a map that shows what country is directly across the ocean from you, provided you're on the beach somewhere in North or South America. It's kinda cool that in some places in Chile you can swim all the way around the world without hi... / Continue →

    This is a video from Novosibirsk, Siberia, of a bunch of beach-goers running for their lives (or to at least prevent bruising) after it starts hailing in the middle of a 99°F (37°C) day. I would have just stayed underwater. Still, God must be angry. Probably at something I d... / Continue →

    I see butts! As even more proof that most Russians don't give a f***, this is a video of a giant Russian military Zubr class hovercraft coming ashore while a bunch of beach-goers just sit and watch instead of running and screaming HOLY SHIT WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE like any non-Rus... / Continue →

    These are a couple of shots of the no f***ing clue that washed ashore on a Spanish beach earlier this week. The beast measures 13-feet long and appears to have horns. Scientists have yet to identify the species, although some speculate it's a giant oarfish, at least one insan... / Continue →

    I am alive and managed to keep my arm but I am on drugs and they make it hard to write to the point where most of the time I'm just staring at the pores on the back of my hands, so bear with me. This is the $100 Sharkini, a bathing suit that makes it look like you're being att... / Continue →

    This is the 40-foot dragon skull that 'washed ashore' on Charmouth Beach in Dorset, England, to promote the availability of Game of Thrones season three on the UK-based television streaming service Blinkbox. Any of you use Blinkbox? I don't even have a TV, just an aquarium. ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a R/C plane that looks like Superman flying around over the beach. It's not a new concept, because we've seen several of those superhero planes before, this one just looks like Superman. "Who cares?" Not me, I'm been too busy prepping my apocalypse bunker.... / Continue →

    Because this is the world we live in, Grant Engler and Amanda Volf got married over the weekend on a beach and left the ceremony with a pair of water jetpacks. Personally, I think Grant should have been carrying his new bride, but that's just me and I'm the most romantic man i... / Continue →

    This is a video of a robotic arm that sprays a mixture of sand and water and some sort of adhesive to create these intricate, organic-looking sculptures. I don't know about you, but if I saw a robotic arm making sand castles on the beach I'd bury it and then give it a big ol' ... / Continue →

    This is a gallery of the graffiti that German street artist Mirko Reisser created on the beach. It's supposed to be his tag. What's it say? The same thing all other tags say, I HAVE NO F***ING CLUE. Kidding, it actually reads 'DAIM', which I can ALMOST make out since I know... / Continue →

    RETROACTIVE WARNING: Man-crotch in your face. This is the ThingThong from designer Douglas Hamilton, a flip-flop with a super-elastic strap that can be worn as an emergency swimsuit in case a shark eats your other one. Plus it has a thong back for maximum tanning! My God how... / Continue →

    These are some pictures of a "cloud tsunami" that rolled over some oceanfront condos in Panama City beach last week. You more observant readers might notice I put cloud tsunami in quotes thought because there's no such thing. Same goes for the tooth fairy. Trust me, I've bee... / Continue →

    This is a screenshot from French clothing retailer La Redoute's website advertising kid's t-shirts. Aaaaaaaaaand they used a product shot with a dude's wiener in it. I even found a closeup HERE because I know you're a pervert! The image, which appeared for several hours on ... / Continue →

    This is a video of an octopus trying to carry a crab from one tidal pool to another at the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve in Moss Beach, California. He's not really the best land-walker I've ever seen, but he is trying to carry a crab half the time, and it's not easy struttin' that... / Continue →

    This is a Nokia viral ad for their N8 phone featuring the world's largest stop-motion animation, which was made on a beach using a crane (that's a real boat in the picture). It's a follow-up to their world's smallest stop-motion animation and NOT a follow up to the job intervi... / Continue →

    These are grains of sand magnified 250x. I have no clue if representative of typical grains of sand like you'd find stuck to a dog turd at the beach, or if they had to pick through a bunch on a magic beach to find some really good ones. In reality, most sand probably looks pr... / Continue →
