Pacific Wild‘s Conservation Director, photographer, and longtime Great Bear Rainforest resident Ian McAllister is on Vancouver Island this week speaking to the making of his (incredible) new book Great Bear Wild. From the Victoria Facebook event page:
‘Globally renowned for its astonishing biodiversity, the Great Bear Rainforest is also one of the most endangered landscapes on the planet, where First Nations people fight for their way of life as massive energy projects threaten entire ecosystems.
McAllister’s new book Great Bear Wild, a stunning collection of photographs and personal narrative, is the product of twenty five years of McAllister’s research, exploration, and campaigning for the spectacular area he calls home.’
With dates on the Island and surrounding areas through November, go learn more and support this project in the same stoke. Dates and details on the Pacific Wild site.
Damn, my kind of video. Bleak, dark, cold, Jon Hopkins soundtrack, 5mm suits, and Oli Adams slowing it down for the barrel. Reminiscent of Mickey Smith work, great stuff from C-Skins.
‘Salsa Cycles Why Bikepack short film shares the story of a fall bikepacking trip and the motivations of one of the riders. Shot on the beautiful Chequamegon Area Mountain Bike Trails in northern Wisconsin in Fall 2013′
So on point! Planning my first bikepack mission for the spring, can’t wait (and can’t believe its taken me so long to tackle this aspect of cycling).
Rick McCrank for Drink Water, a rad combo. Also really feeling the lofi black and white treatment. Drink Water are some of the coolest doing it and I couldn’t be more stoked on what they’re pushing, drink that tap water and leave the sugary caffeine swill to someone else with a diabetes hankering.
Mt. Fuji and the surrounding forrest act as the backdrop for this collection from The North Face – gear for a hike and camp through one of Japan’s most treasured natural sites. The kit is available online, but only in Japan… but enjoy the promo nonetheless.
Justin Morrison aka Scrappers is a man of many activities; drawing, painting, camping, surfing, moto riding and i am sure the list goes on. Born on Vancouver Island and now based in Portland, Scrappers is all about the adventure life and he wants to share and explore that with you, so much so he is looking to launch a free adventure/lifestyle mag called STAY WILD. To help get things off the ground he has started a Kickstarter page to raise money for the printing costs of the first issue. This looks like it is going to be a super rad publication, one I can fully support and if you feel the same head on over to the Kickstarter and throw down in the name of adventure…

‘This video was filmed in three days while on a trip to TATCHU surf adventures in Canada. It features a good chunk of the Storm surf shop team from Tofino B.C.’ Great stuff from Adam Dewolfe, a trip to Nootka sometime this year is definitely in the works.
