Win a Mad Gringo Hawaiian Shirt

During the Month of December I am holding a contest in conjunction with The Mad Gringo at at We will be giving some lucky bloggers sweet Mad Gringo Swag including an authentic Mad Gringo Hawaiian Shirt or Mad Gringo Sarong if you would prefer. I own two Mad Gringo Hawaiian shirts and they are incredibly comfortable and look great.

I discovered the Mad Gringo site and fell in love with the idea of “Go Slow”. That relaxed lifestyle where you aren’t constrained by the corporate life and you follow the Mad Gringo within yourself. So enamored was I that I went on a Mad Gringo sized shopping spree and bought 5 shirts in a whack. I also decided that the Mad Gringo and the Wired Kayaker had something in common. Being a flat water kayaker I’m all about Going Slow and enjoying life. I figure I might as well look stylish doing so.

The Mad Gringo website is a very magical place for me. For one thing there are all the great Hawaiian shirts, but that is not all. Mad Gringo has added a ton more products to his line up. There are T-Shirts, Caribbean Golf and Bucket hats, Flip Flop Bottle openers as well as Flip Flops featuring the Mad Gringo Pineapple skull and crossbones logo. You can even get the Mad Gringo in your life a gift basket, and this is one they will love. If you spring for the Grande Version you can get a ton of sweet stuff. Just look.

Gift Package “Grande” contains:

  • 1 Official Mad Gringo Go Slow shirt. You choose the pattern.
  • 1 Pair of Mad Gringo Flip Flops
  • 1 Boat Flag. You choose color. or Mad Gringo Tee. I don’t care.
  • 1 Mad Gringo Golf Hat or Floppy Beach Hat. Choose color.
  • 1 Bottle of Rocky Mountain Sunscreen with a carabiners clip to attach to your belt.
  • 1 Mad Gringo Flip Flop Bottle Opener Keychain. Choose color.
  • 1 Beer bucket. Can also hold a small palm tree. Very small.
    All for just $89 + shipping. Amazing.

And you get free shipping on all orders over $70.00. Christmas is coming and the Gringos need gifts. But you can win your Gringos some sweet gifts by entering this contest.

  1. Thanks Stephen. I appreciate that you entered. I’m sending you an e-mail as well. Being a dog that goes fast I think you might have missed a couple key points to the contest.
