Restube is designed to be small and lightweight to cater for active people who don’t want to feel restrained in the water. The pack is worn around your waist, causes little or no drag and is perfect for Open Water Swimming, Windsurfing, Stand Up Paddleboard, Kitesurfing, On-Board boats, Angling and Lifeguards.
So far RESTUBE has been used at over 40 water sports events around the world, helping safety crews and participants alike.

Restube is currently being used and tested by Lifeguard associations around the world.

Originality often times means being first and SAXX’s heritage of revolutionizing underwear goes back 10 years. In 2006, Trent Kitsch was on a fishing expedition and after spending hours in a cold, clammy ocean suit he knew there had to be a better way to protect his package from chafing. A former baseball player, he imagined a catcher’s mitt hammock design and turned it upside down in his mind. After the fishing trip, and with the hammock idea still percolating, he worked with a seamstress and designer — and himself as the fit model — to create a paneled fabric hammock that separated his balls from his legs. Fourteen prototypes later, the BallPark Pouch™ and SAXX Underwear were ready for action.

Timothy Taylor’s is an independent, family owned brewery based on the Knowle Spring in Keighley. We have over 150 years of brewing experience and are renowned for the quality of our award-winning beer. Our cask conditioned beers consist of Landlord, Boltmaker, Golden Best, Dark Mild, Ram Tam and we have recently launched Knowle Spring Blonde .
We can’t put the unique taste of Timothy Taylor’s beer down to any single thing. It’s the result of years of hard work, skill and doing things the hard way because we think it makes the difference.
Taking extra time, care and pride in traditional, hands-on brewing, and making no compromises when it comes to ingredients. Our 5 highly trained brewers still brew all our beer by hand and taste test every batch at least three times. Our Knowle Spring brewery sits on a natural artesian well, which provides a constant water, unique to Taylor’s, that has been filtered through layers of limestone and black rock. Knowle Spring water is naturally soft and very pure.
Its consistency is one of the reasons we are able to produce beers of such reliable quality and flavour. We only use Golden Promise barley. It’s the highest-grade barley you can use for brewing beer.
We’re one of the last brewers in Britain to still use whole leaf hops. They cost more and take more looking after but we think they’re vital to the flavour of our beer. Our unique strain of yeast is over 1800 generations old and combines perfectly with our water and barley. It’s appropriately called Taylor’s Taste.
It’s quite rare these days, but we still use a hop-back stage. This allows us to extract the most subtle flavours and aromas from the oils of the hops.
All for that taste of Taylor’s.
