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…

“What happened to the dream of surfing in remote breaks? The answer is simple: it was always there and all I needed was determination”
Beautifully shot and edited with a great soundtrack, more stellar video content from Desillusion.
‘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.
‘Setting out on this journey, we left the dock with a rough idea of what to expect; fishing, exploring by boat, bush-whacking with bikes while burdened with camera packs, camping, and possibly a bear or two. After a week at sea we learned the hardships and enjoyment of balancing a lifestyle of sustenance, exploration and documenting the journey.’
Large shouts to the homie Derek Dix for imagining then making this trip happen. The fully narrated story with photo essay premiered over on Pinkbike so make sure to check that out as well. This province never ceases to amaze, and it always gets me stoked to see good people documenting their explorations to share with others, fuelling the fire.
