A traditional diamond kite with a bong carrying case, the HIGH Kite & Journey Tube are handcrafted objects that push the boundaries of adult entertainment. Hand-stitched out of ripstop nylon by Miami-based master kite-maker Dan Ward, the 32” HIGH Kite is a statement in the sky. Literally embracing the century-old phrase “high as a kite” while referencing the kite as a means of advertising in the same era, the HIGH kite celebrates the lifted. With a stylistic nod to the legendary acrylic Tobacco Master Water Pipe, the Journey Tube is a 39-inch, fully functional travel case designed in partnership with Brooklyn-based industrial design studio The Principals. This edition is made with the intention for its users to spend time outdoors—a luxurious opportunity in the modern world. The HIGH Kite & Journey Tube launch exclusively in-store and online at Paul Kasmin Gallery’s PK Shop, and retail for $400 in an edition of 20.

Ever wonder what it feels like to leap off of a bridge to your own demise? Hopefully not, but just in case, a new ride at Busch Gardens Tampa has got your intrigue covered. Called Falcon’s Fury, this roller coaster of sorts raises you 335 feet in to the air, tilts you 90º, and then drops you into a 60-mph, face-first free fall. It’ll really make second guess those selfish thoughts.
