Gadgets and Gear That’ll Make You King of the Beach

boardSanta Cruz Land Shark Rasta Cruzer ($113)

Eager to explore the boardwalk, but totally over that whole “walking” thing? Santa Cruz has got you covered with its new line of Cruzers — solidly built, surf-inspired skateboards designed for easy riding, not ramps and rails. That may be best exemplified by the handy bottle opener built into the underside of the deck, which is perfect for easing your transition from boardwalk cruiser to beach-blanket boozer. And if you don’t like bright colors but do like deadly jungle cats, the boards also come with Leopard and Tiger graphics.
