Sukbag International is ready to hit the global market

Terry & Sharon’s story

(Varsity Lakes, QLD Australia. Monday 31st December 2018)

Sukbag International is finally ready to hit the global market from mid-January 2019, which will be available at www.sukbag.com

Sukbag International was first born by Director (ideas man) Terry Ford. Thirsty and dehydrated, Terry was on a 4hr session surfing at Snapper Rocks when he was on his way back to get a quick refresh before hitting the surf again. That’s when it hit him. What a great idea to have something you could take out into the surf to get hydrated. Excited, he couldn’t wait to get home to tell Shaz about his idea. Firstly she rolled her eyes, and said “not another idea,” but soon came around when the research for hydration bottles, sachet bags etc. came up empty. There was nothing in the marketplace at all.

Terry was head down and bum up, as they say, once he started a project there’s nothing stopping him. He began making prototypes out of plastic and tubing and anything he could get his hands on.

Next was to test the waters but found it hard to hide from other surfers. He’d stay under the water until a wave came, then jump up and away.  He couldn’t wipe the smile off his face when finally returned home. “Sukbag worked.” And the usages were endless.

Terry and Sharon had the vision to offer a delivery system to hydration, for thirsty Surfers, Walkers, Runners, Bike Riders, Cricket Players, Wind Surfers, Miners, Trades People and Mums/Dads packing the kids lunch boxes through a hands-free hydration pack that can be easily accessible in extreme conditions. The 230ml bag has a bite valve, that sits comfortably in its own pouch on your arm. Sukbag is a reusable, collapsible and lightweight to replace water bottles and easily fits into pockets, bags, and shirts etc.

With Sharon’s passion for art and graphics she designed the Logo, Packaging and Website, finally, after a few years, the project is ready to hit the global marketplace.

Terry already has more ideas for Sukbag International as the company grows. As the saying goes, “you have to have a thousand ideas to have one good one.” And push the limits.

7 Things That Might Happen If You Drink 16 cups of Water a Day

From weight loss to brighter under eyes

16 cups. It sounds like a lot, but considering that your body is made up of 60 percent water, it sort of makes sense that you’d need about that much to keep things running smoothly. Here, seven things that might happen if you drank 16 cups of water every day.

You Might Feel Bloated…Initially

If you’re suddenly increasing your water intake, you may feel uncomfortably full (especially around the midsection) to start. Don’t worry: This will subside soon, but in the meantime, sip your water slowly and steadily throughout the day instead of all at once to minimise the discomfort.              

You Will Have to Pee All the Time 

Once that de-bloating kicks into gear, you’ll be flushing out the excess sodium your body is holding onto. You’ll also be doing that other bathroom business regularly, now that your body is breaking down its food more easily. (Hello, flat tummy!) And the last bonus? Those frequent bathroom breaks ensure that you’re moving around more throughout the day.

You Might Eat Less 

There’s a reason why nutritionists suggest chugging a glass of water before meals. It makes you feel fuller, which keeps you from consuming too many superfluous calories.               

You’ll Have Better Workouts

 Water helps to transport oxygen and glucose through your body, so you’ll have more energy during your workout. Plus, it acts as a lubricant for your joints and muscles. Make sure to drink frequently two hours before your workout, every 20 minutes during and directly afterwards to keep your body properly hydrated.

You Might Lose Weight

Think about it: You’re peeing away the extra bloat, you’re eliminating waste regularly, you’re eating less and you’re working out more efficiently. While drinking more water in itself won’t make you lose weight, the positive side effects just might.             

Your Under eye Circles Might (Finally) Go Away 

Under-eye bags are commonly caused by the retention of water to that delicate area. Whether it’s from eating a salty meal or a late night sob-fest, sodium is prone to pooling. Drinking more water will help flush out the excess salt from your system, which will tamp down any puffiness—even there.

You’ll Crave More Water

 The more you drink it, the more you’ll want it–and the less you’ll crave other not-as-great-for-you beverages. Luckily, the stuff is free, pure and as evidenced above, the absolute best for you.
