At Outta Control Sport Fishing, Captain Ralph Hawkins applies more than 25 years of fishing experience and an arsenal of advanced electronics to put his customers on fish such as snapper, grouper, and king mackerel. Guided by 72-mile HD radar and sonar, and powered by a pair of more than 500-horsepower John Deere engines, the 75-foot Outta Control IV can jet towards its finned prey at speeds of more than 22 knots. Other devices, including Sirius weather and dual VHF marine radios, help ensure passengers' safety on the trip.
Once the fish are found, the dedicated Outta Control IV crew will go to almost any lengths to catch them: their precision anchor fishing can target future seafood hiding at depths of up to 300 feet. Anglers cast off with quality Finor reels and Shakespeare Ugly stick rods, pulling in a quantity and quality of seafood unmatched by most other boats in Southeast Florida. For customers' comfort, the Outta Control IV also comes fully equipped with two full restrooms and an air-conditioned cabin for hot days. A full galley serves up meals, snacks, and cold beverages.
The phosphorescent indoor landscape at Monster Mini Golf immerses putters in an eerie universe that inverts the sun-soaked cheer of conventional courses. Rimmed in glowing barriers, 18 holes lure swingers of all sizes to challenge their coordination and resolve in the face of winged monsters, scowling animated trees, a creepy clown, and their opponents' shockingly dazzling smiles. Sheltered from searing rain and howling wind, the indoor course enables play around hazards such as a spell well and luminous, ghostly windmill at any time of the year. An in-house radio station and DJ mask the sound of pounding hearts with lively beats and course commentary, and golfers looking for additional glory can win prizes by participating in regular contests or at the on-site arcade.
Gábor Pásztor has always loved sports, his passion and athleticism leading him to compete in international track-and-field meets on behalf of his home country, Hungary. Today, he brings his speed, endurance, and coordination skills to the United States to help a new generation of soccer and track-and-field stars hone their natural abilities at Citius Athletic Club Miami. At his club, he helms US Soccer Federation–registered soccer teams in competitive play against other local organizations. And he's serious about the sport: He holds practice with four different age groups of students—ranging ages 3–13—three times a week.
In addition to prepping youths for league play, he and his coaches lead fundamentals classes for beginning soccer players. The fundamentals classes cover the same skills and techniques as the competitive practices, but students aren't required to compete in games or maintain perfect pitch during the "National Anthem."
If Victor Frankenstein ever took a break from science to design a 5K race, the result would have probably looked something like a Hybrid Hell Run event. Each race in the Hybrid Hell Run series is similar to Frankenstein’s monster: races are gritty, spread out across misshapen terrain, and require every ounce of physical and mental strength to survive.
With each of its races cranking up the intensity level, the series selects locations that are naturally challenging, such as forests, hills, or M. C. Escher’s labyrinthine backyard. The HHR team then brews up a ruthless lineup of physical challenges, maintaining focus on three main categories—cardiovascular endurance, strength, and speed and agility. The finished course tests the athletic prowess of male, female, and youth divisions, with top performers receiving cash rewards.
In the last 40 years, Portrait Scene's photographers have helped to memorialize special moments in the lives of thousands of children, teens, and adults across the country. By constantly working with families, they have mastered the art of calming toddlers and keeping parents still enough to say or even pasteurize cheese. Outdoor shoots make use of natural tones, such as those of crystal-blue lake waters and green, leafy trees. In the spring months, photos brim with the pastel buds of tulips and the shine of bluebirds applying makeup for the first time all year.
