Keeping you updated!

Here at the Tachyon XC official blog, we are dedicated to informing you of upcoming events that we love and follow, as well as events that you, our users follow.  If you know of any events in your local city, state, province or country that would be of interest to us please send an comment or email to the blog and we will post it with pics and video.  So always stay tuned.


Coming up December 4th-7th we have the ever famous Tampa Am skate competition that has been blowing up all over the world in recent years.  When I lived in China, every kid in the local skate shops that I hung out at from the mainland to Hong Kong talked about the Tampa Am and frequented the Am’s YouTube videos constantly, proving the Tampa Am and Tampa Pro competitions reach.  The event continues to show the world how insanely skilled a large number of skaters have become, from incredible tech skaters to dirty street rippers the Tampa AM is a world wide force and will continue to grow in popularity as the sport grows on every continent.


Another huge event in the world wide surf community is the Billabong Pipeline Masters in December, the pipe masters will run the 8th-20th.  Pipeline is one of the most grueling and hardcore surf competitions on the planet, some feel that winning the Pipe Masters is the equivalent of winning the ASP World Title.  With the classic history of the riders who have competed and called pipeline their home as well as the devastating wave itself, anyone who walks away with the title becomes a part of the legend and pipe lore themselves.  Who is the greatest or most historic rider to conquer pipe?  That is the argument of legends, past winners include Jeff Hackman, 2 time winners Rorry Russell, and Larry Blair to local legends Gerry Lopez, Dane Kealoha, Michael and Derek Ho, Australia’s Tom Carroll, Occhi, Jake Paterson and title holder Bede Durbidge.  The fight however, may end with the ever hostile competition between 5 time winner Kelly Slater and 4 time winner Andy Irons.  Slater comes into the Pipe masters holding strong at #1 in the ASP rankings in front of 2007 Pipe Master Durbidge, can Irons who sits at 14th tie Slaters 5 wins, we shall see.

Right now we have a few Tachyon XC’s floating around in the skate and surf world from the backyard bowles and ramps of Long Beach, CA and the shores and breaks of Waialua, HI.  So stay glued to the official Tachyon XC blog for full articles of each event and some of our own skate and surf videos filmed with the Tachyon XC helmet cam.  Stop by our website and check us out

Hunting Season Has Commenced!

The hunting season for 2008-2009 is now upon us. Dove season kicked off in most areas at the beginning of September, while hunting white-tail deer by rifle begins at the beginning of November. I’m sure all of you are starting to (or already have) polish up your 12-gauges and get all your rifles cleaned up for another season.

Whether you’re practicing the art of falconry or being more traditional with a large rifle, you’ll always want a way of capturing your progress and experience. A great gift and gadget to make that happen would be the Tachyon XC. This little camera will give you the power to capture all your shots and movement on  video, without scaring everything away (it has a privacy mode to silence all camera sounds). The Tachyon XC is your ultimate way to capture your hunting footage on the go, at only $149.99, check out to find out more about this great device (check out the videos for yourself to see all the compatibilities).

With the XC’s ability to use 2, 4, 6, 16, and 32GB SDHC cards, you’ll have the opportunity to film your whole day on the lease at a cheap price. Rather than bringing your big and bulky, expensive camera, you could easily mount this camera on your gun, hat, tree stand, feeder or even put it on a small tripod. Not only can you capture video, you can take still photos for anything you catch and bag.

The Tachyon XC is shockproof and waterproof, so you can be running after your target or plowing through the bushes on your ATV, without your camera shutting itself off, plus it can work even during a wet and snowy day in the early morning. Grab the Tachyon XC while you can for all your hunting capturing needs.

Texas is the most popular state of overall hunting, while other states follow. The following hunting locations include many of the following game: Whitetail Deer, Turkey, Exotics, Boar, Dove, Quail, Duck, Elk, Javelina, Pronghorn, Axis, Deer, Blackbuck, Mouflon, Aoudad, Corscan, Wild Hog, Duck, Goose, Pheasant, Black Bear, Antelope, Moose, and more.Below are a few places to give you an idea of where to hunt. Although there are many listed sites of where you can hunt, the biggest hunting enthusiasts also choose to find their own locations throughout the states to their own liking. If you would rather go to a set place, here are a few options.
