After 3 months of rehab I thought I might share some of my friends’ experiences I have vicariously lived through. Follow up and check the links, these kids are legit:
This fella happens to know the most isolated part of New Zealand as well if not better than any other Tom, Dick or Harry out there. He’s constantly on the mission and always come back full of stories, new plans and generally a package of fresh fish or venison. Check out his post on rafting and fishing in the rarely explored backcountry of Fiordland, New Zealand.
Kiwi-merican – GZ shares his knowledge on how he recovered from a severe ice climbing injury suffered while a few 100 ft off the deck in NZ. The GZ sends large rock and ice laden monoliths for fun. His advice is taken to heart always. Fortunately he was there to help get through the early days leading up to and throughout the knee surgery. His most memorable advice was to: watch Battle Star Galactica, drink Umcka (Chinese Medicine), watch Fight Club, listen to Nine Inch Nails, and feel it.
Camilla was recently voted as a finalist in the Pro Photographer Showdown facing stiff competition from Southern Mainer, Brian Nevins & Burton Team Manager Adam Moran amongst others. Although she didn’t win, this girl can shoot photos! Oh ya, and she scored Japan eye ball deep…again! Check out some of her blog posts for a unique look into Japan, New Zealand and more.
Dougal is perhaps the most dedicated athlete I have ever known. For example, after setting the record on the Lake Hawea Epic Mountain Bike Race (125 km of undulating terrain) in 4 hours 36 minutes and 34 seconds, he set off on a two hour run in anticipation for the Brazilian 5 – 10 day adventure race he’s been invited to join. This cat is years before his prime so keep an eye out as he travels competing in some of the most physically and mentally exhausting events known to man.
My sister has done a fantastic job capturing the life we all want to live. Check in for daily style and life inspiration.
A glimpse into Iphonography from the eyes of the Murph – Soul Surfer, Snowboarder, Creative Director, Marketing Guru, amongst other things…
Sam punched his way through from nowhere to leading the World Freeride Tour this year. Although he fell in his final line of the event of the year, he did NZ proud and showed it is possible to walk onto the tour and kick ass!
Thanks friends. Keep crushing it!
