  • Rainbow® Sandals Contributes to The Asian Elephant Foundation


    Rainbow® Sandals contributed to The Asian Elephant Foundation and the first stop of the Elephant Parade in Dana Point, California.

    Elephant Parade’s open air art exhibitions create worldwide attention, public awareness and support for the cause of elephant conservation: the Elephant Parade statues never go unnoticed by the wider public and mass media.

    Elephant Parade is a social enterprise with a unique combination of art, business and conservation. The better the art, the higher the value of the Elephant Parade statue at auction: the life size baby elephant statues are exhibited in well-known cities and auctioned off at prestigious gala events. Smaller size hand painted limited edition replicas and other Elephant Parade merchandise are created based on the exposition elephants and sold at better stores around the world, in Elephant Parade Gallery Stores and via the Elephant Parade webshop. 

    The Asian Elephant Foundation auction/sell the statues and hence the foundation can support various projects. In addition to the sale of exhibition Elephant Parade elephants, 20% of Elephant Parade net profit is also distributed to The Asian Elephant Foundation. This generates a steady stream of ongoing income for the foundation. 

    The Asian Elephant Foundation distributes monies raised to various projects and organizations in the 13 Asian range countries, solely dedicated to the wellbeing and conservation of the Asian Elephant. In addition to this, The Asian Elephant Foundation plays an active role in awareness and educational projects around the world.

     For more information about The Asian Elephant Foundation and ways to contribute, go to: http://www.theasianelephantfoundation.org

  • Thank You Eco-Farms and Family Assistance Ministries


    We would like to give a big thanks to Norm, Steve, Anika and Kaitlin from Eco farms who graciously donate their grape fruits and oranges to us so we can feed those in need via Family Assistance Ministries (F.A.M)

    Chanya and Sparky Longley produce avocados in Temecula.  After each harvest, there is an abundance of fruit that isn't sold and often just thrown away. Instead, Sparky and Chanya pick the avocados and then take them here to Rainbow Sandals where we prepare to feed the homeless every Saturday via organized events F.A.M. puts together.
      Someone Cares Soup Kitchen (Feeds 300 people/day) , Laura's House (takes in 35 families/day), Saddleback Church (Feeds 3,000 people/day), South County Outreach (Feeds 300/Day). 

    Thank You again Eco-Farms for your contribution.  It's people like you who make a difference.

    For more information on F.A.M please go to their website: http:// family-assistance.org/

  • Connor Baxter wins the Maui-2-Molokai 27-Mile Crossing!


    ReCap of Event

    The 2013 World Cup of SUP was such a great event. The day started at 4:45am with a bowl of cereal and some blasting music. My Sister and Mom, Sam Williams, Riggs Napolean, Mo Freitas and I drove over to the other side of the island to start a long day. We launched the boat at Mala Wharf, loaded it up with boards and people - and off we went. The race was 27-miles from Maui to Molokai and started at Honolua Bay on the west side of Maui. As we headed to Honolua I could see that the winds were coming up and there were bumps - good sign for a great crossing. 

    When we got to the bay we unstrapped the boards and headed into shore for the Skippers meeting at 9:00am. Back on the boat I got my Dakine hydration pack on, loaded up on my Hammer Nutrition - and off to the Start Line. 

    When I was on the starting line all I was thinking of was - "I got to beat my last years time" - which was a record setting time for this crossing of 2 hours 55 minutes. We all had to sit on our boards for the start and then stand up. Once the horn blew I jumped straight to my feet and started to paddle my butt off. Kody Kerbox and I were in the lead and I knew I wasn't going to let anyone pass me. Travis Grant was next to Kody, and then there was David Kissane from Australia, Livio Menelau, Jeremy Riggs, Scott Trudon to name a few. 

    Once I got more into the channel I realized it was a lot lighter than I thought and it was going to be hard to beat my time from last year. But, I just kept my head down and wasn't going to look back. Once I got half way in the channel, I started heading downwind to the point of Molokai. The bumps were still there, but not as epic as last year. Around 10 miles to go I realized that I had a good gap on everyone, but I wanted to win by a lot, so I kept the throttle on and tried to make a bigger gap. Coming into the last few miles I was getting a little sore and tired, but I just keep telling myself only a little more. I finally made the right hand buoy turn into the finish line. I sprinted as hard as I could and I still was slower then last year at 3 hours 9 minutes. I was stoked to win and win by a good distance. It is always a blast to paddle that channel and being with family and friends. 

    My average speed was 8.6 miles per hour. And, my Garmin clocked me at 14.2 mph as my fastest speed.

    I'll have a video to showcase soon - had my GoPro on the front of my board and my sister Ashley and Riggs were taking loads of video from the boat! You can check my Blog for updates http://blog.connorbaxter.com, my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/connorbaxterathlete and my Youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/baxconnor.

    I want to thank my sponsors for all their support – Starboard, Maui Jim Sunglasses, Rainbow Sandals, Trident Sports, Futures Fins, Dakine, GoPro, OnIt Pro, Waterman’s Sunscreen, Virus Sport Wear, Igloo Coolers, Sunrite Maui, Hammer Nutrition, iDcard, EFX and Hi-Tech Sports. 

    Also a big Mahalo to all the event organizers and volunteers. Another Great Event!!

    Aloha,
        Connor Baxter
