France 🇫🇷 x Monaco 🇲🇨, you were rad! Thank you @benjaminortega for inviting me on this trip; it was so fun haaripping around your part of the world and maximizing the shenanigans! @douchebags @gopro @boostedboards . . . . #gopro #monaco #monaco🇮🇩 #france #france🇫🇷 #france_holidays #santropez #boostedboards #skateboarding #goprohero7 #downhillskate #visitfrance #visitlafrance #cestnormal #hero7black
Zanzibar haarippping! Funny story! I Dragged my kite and foil gear all over Africa at the end of last year with the biggest liability of a friend I know, @livetothemax. Sounds easy but boy was it hilarious going through airports like Dar es Salaam, Uganda, Rwanda, and Ethiopia with surf and foil gear. While most airlines were sympathetic, it was always a conversation or three to make it happen. The second clip is a little bts of the airport in Tanzania; while checking into our flight the airport completely lost power for 10 minutes! Imagine if that happened at SFO! It was pretty hectic as lots of reservations were lost. But in the end the chaos actually made it easier to get my bag through because they had such a situation on their hands. I love traveling in Africa because of the randomness of it; never a dull moment. Anybody else have a random “TIA” (“This is Africa”) moment while traveling on the Mother Continent? All in all, it was so worth it to carry some extra gear to experience some of Africa’s more wild places with a kite and foil!

BASE Jumping... It has such a bizarre place in my psyche. Before this trip to Norway, I never thought I would actually do it; while I have always wanted to send it off a cliff/building/etc, the risks were just too high and I have other outlets to push myself. However, after hiking to the top of the 2000’-3000’ fjords, which by itself is such a rad experience, and watching this group of humans launch themselves, I became wildly inspired. I’ve always been obsessed with the extremes of the human experience and this is definitely at the “maxing” side of the spectrum. With the added height of these walls, you don’t only get a better BASE experience, but it’s actually safer with the added time to create distance from yourself and the wall. I spent hours asking these guys questions (it’s a long hike to the top); not only about the gear, tech and risk mitigation, but also on the biggest hurdle for me which is how to “justify” the risks of the sport. You don’t live in this world by yourself so i’m curious/fascinated what you all think, especially those of you who have decided to or not to get rowdy from a tall object. . . . . #basejump #basejumping #basejumper #norway #lysebotn #gopro #hero7black #fjordsofnorway #fjord #lifeontheedge
But was there even a fin in the board!? Love these two babes for keeping the silly vibes at all time highs! Life is just so damn good when we are all together! 🏄♀️🌴🚀#christakemyphoto #chriseditmyphoto #nobaddays
Happy birthday to this adventurous soul! We have a very fortunate life so let’s not waste a minute of it! 23 never looked so d*mn good! @erin_edenholm
Bound for Alaska 🦅! I land in Anchorage tomorrow morning where I will be meeting up with my two climbing partners to tackle Alaska’s tallest mountain, Denali. We are doing it unsupported and have supplies for 20-days. We’ve been training hard since we decided to do it in November and my regiment, outside of all the cardio training, has included going to Boston to do safety and crevasse rescue as well as hiking well over 100 miles, including an 8-day 81 mile trek, all above 15,000’ in Peru. I’ve only been back from Peru for less than a week to rest and hopefully hold onto increased hemoglobin levels to be acclimatized for the days ahead. I wrote down my goals for 2019 and what I wrote was not to “summit” Denali, but to “enjoy” Denali and to do it unguided and safely. While I’ll do my d*mn best to summit, the journey is more important. The summit was -62°F yesterday (not safe to summit in those conditions) so safety and preparedness are remaining at the top of my awareness as I visualize the journey ahead. I’ll do my best to update you guys but will likely be out of service once we get dropped off on the glacier via bush-plane until the second week of June. Time for an adventure of adventures! #nobaddays #denali #denalinationalpark . . . . #peru #madeinperu #huayhuash #cordilleradelosandes #cordillera #travelperu #alaska #mtmckinley #climbdenali #sevensummits #goprohero7 #gopro #goprohero7black #trekking #trekkingperu @epicbar @gopro @veganali2019
If I had all the money in the world, I would use it to heli-ski with these nerds (and my parents although mom may not get in the chopper)🚁⛷👨👩👦👦. I am super fortunate and grateful to call this, “work”. So, thank you @GoPro for making this dream a reality and for keeping us college ski-bums together for these experiences🙏. #nobaddays #greatful . . . @oakleyskiing @cmh_heli #oakley #oakleyskiing #oakleysnowboarding #heliskiing #heliskiingcanada #monashees #britishcolumbia #canada #gopro #goprohero7 #goprohero7black #skiing #skiing🎿 #helicopterskiing #powderskiing
So many activities in the British Virgin Islands 🇻🇬 but I think you guys know what’s my favorite🏄♂️! I have a jam packed couple months coming up so it has been amazing to unwind a bit (and turn it up🕺) before I take on my biggest challenge yet on this amazing planet 🌎. I have one more work gig in Canada 🇨🇦 before I announce that project and then it’s going to get real... hint - it’s going to be colddd🥶! Thank you guys for following the journey and don’t forget to get outside and enjoy life🌲🏔🏝! #nobaddays #loyaltothefoil
The British Virgin Islands 🇻🇬 have been popping off!! We did a 9 boat regada from Anegada to Necker and with good winds and a fleet of boats blasting music it was a must to throw up the kite and foil with the fleet ⛵️🔊. It was a little nerve wracking as the seas were a little big and a mid-crossing rescue would have been tough. But 3.5 hours later, we arrived at a perfect lagoon and from there it was a few upwind tacks to Necker Island 🌴. I wasn’t sure I was allowed to drop my kite there as it’s owned by @richardbranson but I was tired and felt I had somewhat earned it. Turns out his water sports crew were legends and more than happy to let me park there, they even came to the party we hosted at the neighboring sand-spit. Thank you to World’s Second Best Skipper @livetothemax for keeping an eye on me and @foilscience for the trans-Caribbean watercraft! And a massive shoutout to @soundboks for keeping the vibes high 💯! Salty and happy 🧂😊! #nobaddays #foilwiththefleet
Missing this Honey Bee 🐝❤️! While @erin_edenholm and I don’t get to spend everyday together, the ones we do get, we try to maximize. It can be hard not being with each other all the time but we are strong believers in allowing each other to pursue our own personal goals, even if that means taking life on solo for a bit. While in the short term it can be hard, we think it is better for the both of us in the long term. What do you think? I don’t think there is a “solution” to this, more of a flow that has to be constantly adjusted to work. #NoBadDays
Hi friends! I have been a little dark on the social interwebs lately 🤷♀️. I think most people have realized the love/hate relationship with these platforms. I’ve been seeing more and more posts about just this. Sometimes inspiration comes in and it’s, “omg, I really want to create and share this”, and other times it just doesn’t feel right. Anyway, just trying to find the balance 🧘♀️! So yah, here’s an update. After 30 solid days of production in the mountains 🏔🎿 it was time to warm up and get to my favorite place to recenter the mind and train the body. Hawaii! The kiting/surfing has been extra fun and it has been amazing to catch up with friends and the community over here. Feeling veryyy refreshed 🏄👌! Since I got back from Africa at the end of last year I’ve been trying to figure out what’s next and I finally feel super solid about my goals and plans for 2019. I’ve got some really fun projects and trips in the works and I can’t wait to bring you along on the journey in a hopefully fun and inspirational way🕺! Keep it rad, friends! 🤙 #nobaddays
The dream team out in Japan! 🇯🇵 This trip has been honestly so rad; we’ve been drinking endless matcha 🍵 , meeting tons of awesome people 🥳, snow barrels on snow barrels⛷ and acting more immature with each passing day 🙈. Oh, and we all match now thanks to @montecwear hooking up @abekislevitz all the way out here in @hakuba! Not sure it was an error or not, but two identical kits showed up so of course we went full matchy matchy! ⛩🏯🍣🍜🇯🇵
Tearing up Japan with you is the best! And after these last days of powder, you are officially a ripping skier! 🇯🇵 #skierbabe #shreddylyfe
Happy Holidays from me and @erin_edenholm to you!! Just made it back from a delicious trip down to Baja for some waves and couldn’t be more thankful to be spending it with Erin’s family down in Monterey! This is our favorite date spot along the coast called Swanton Berry Farms where they have the most epic pumpkin pie, and at $6 a slice it better be epic! Wanted to see how Christmas’y of a photo we could make with the @madebygoogle Pixel Slate! This photo was snapped with Erin’s Pixel 3 phone! I hope everyone enjoys the holidays with family and friends. Charge into 2019!🎄🎅#madebygoogle
My heart was so full leaving Africa last month. I spent 2 months climbing Kilimanjaro for charity, going on a grand adventure across Uganda 🇺🇬, Rwanda 🇷🇼, Comoros 🇰🇲, Zanzibar, Tanzania 🇹🇿 , Mozambique 🇲🇿 and way too much time on layovers in Ethiopia 🇪🇹. TIA, “This is Africa”, became a common saying between me and my travel companions @livetothemax, I turned the dirty 23 while being farther from Caleb and my loved ones than I’ve ever been (look up the Comoros Islands). There were highs and lows and all the emotions and craziness that traveling in Africa brings but nothing compared to my last three weeks on the Mother Continent. I joined up with the founder (@justin_arana) of @water_underground to help install water wells into 4 communities in the Massinga area of Mozambique. Going out into the bush each day brought new challenges and new victories. We did end up successfully hitting water in each community, some of it 70 meters below the topsoil, providing a resource that these communities have never had local access to. Gardens, sanitation, health and time are all benefits that these communities get from a local ground well. The wells are placed at the primary schools of each community so to say I made a 1000 friendships is no exaggeration. Despite having virtually no personal belongings, the kids were genuinely happy and grateful for our time with them. I learned a lot and can’t wait to go back and continue the project; it was truly transformative and rewarding and solidified 2018 as a success for me. If you have made it this far, thank you! Please go checkout @water_underground as I’ve put up a ton of photos and information. Get involved and/or reach out to me if you want more info! You are all legends!
Back on Hawaii, but this time on Maui shooting with the legendary @kai_lenny as he uses every craft possible to ride waves. Stay safe out there everyone as the surf is up and it looks like it’s going to stay that way for the next week(s). #oface 🤙
Happy Turkey Day you legends! Getting ready for a powdery and fluffy season with these guys! Whoop whoop, who’s fired up for snow!? 🔥❄️ If you haven’t had a chance yet, checkout @abekislevitz BTS Series on his YouTube following our Japanese Snow Adventure! It’s a very fun look at what it was like on our GoPro productions; just a bunch of homies trying to make rad videos! Maybe hit that sub button on my channel as well because I’m almost at 10k! Thankful for all y’all! ✌️ #japow #japan #japansnow #japowder #powder #hakuba #japanesealps
Should I foil or should I foil!? Enjoying five-star amenities and the ocean before heading back “in”. 🇹🇿 > 🇺🇬 Who knows that flag!?
Enjoying post mountain cheel on Zanzibro! How have I never seen clear kayaks before?... it’s up there with the best humans inventions: helicopters and foils! 🤣😂🤣 Curious, what’s your favorite “fun” human invention?
Washed up in Zanzibar 🇹🇿! It feels great to be back at sea level and even greater to be back on the foil (pic 2). It’s crazy to think how cold it was on the mountain and how warm the water is right next door! Enjoying this much needed ocean time after being in a soggy tent. And because I know your curious about the foil, it’s a 3’8” @goon.bunny board with a @foilscience carbon foil. I use this setup for both prone surfing and kitesurfing! And yes, this gear came with me to Kilimanjaro! #loyaltothefoil
Lots of photos and videos in this post so poke around. We did it! Summit of Kilimanjaro, 19,341’, the Roof of Africa was so special! Thank you @lnadj_charity for organizing such a rad group of people for such a great cause! Together we raised over $61,000 to support two local initiatives in Moshi, Tanzania 🇹🇿. Thank you to everyone who donated and supported the journey! Thank you Jonny for leading the group. Thank you @livetothemax for being such a liability to share a tent with and @salty_ketchup for capturing such great moments. What an adventure! If you made it this far, please watch the final video in this post 🤣 The full summit video is in my bio. Thanks for the support! 🙌
Manifesting that summit! It was a crispy 2 degrees (-17'C) this night but relatively calm and approachable. Sleeping at 14,000’ does weird things to you but is necessary to get acclimated for the more than 5000’ we still have to go! I shot this using a 10sec timer with 15sec exposure. I still can’t believe this is in Africa! #kilimanjaro
19,341’ to the top! That’s 5895m for all you non-Americans, Burmese and Liberians! Africa’s tallest mountain and the Roof of Africa! 🇹🇿 Not to the summit yet but above the clouds and the first photo from a HERO7 on Kilimanjaro! Just posted a video of the shenanigans so far. Check that linky in my bio! #startedatthebottomnowwehere #somuchhiking #Kilimanjaro #Tanzania #Africa #hero7 #gopro
Sorry exercise, but you’re gonna have to take a seat for this one. Taking Mom’s biking route to shreddy levels! I usually reluctantly bike this with her to spend, “mother-son” time together but now I drag her out of the house to rip the route up! “Mom, when can we go next!?!”. #BoostedBoards #SeeYouAtTheFinishLine #HiMomByeMom #ad Checkout my story for GoPro Fusion angles!
Another legendary year with the hottest firecracker on the playa! We’ve had 5 consecutive Burning Man experiences and each one has been so different and exciting! Lets keep up this pace! Cheers Bubbles! 🔥🌶💃
🇧🇷Brasil!! What can I say!? You have been amazing in so many ways! Of all the places we went, it wasn’t the beaches or the cities we visited, it was the people. I’ve traveled a lot and the people of Brasil are the warmest, kindest and most generous I’ve ever experienced. We were met with open arms everywhere we went! The deep conversations with Uber drivers, the “best friends” we met the day before, all of Erin’s family we met along the way, you will all be missed (for now)! To every Brasileiro we met along the way, a big, heartfelt “thank you” from @erin_edenholm and me. Seriously, you made this trip what is was. After three months (four for my now nearly fluent girlfriend) it’s time to head back to the states and get life organized! Obrigado, tchau, até mais! 🇺🇸
You are 25 👶!! You are officially older than me!! I love you to the moon and back! And I am just so happy and proud of you for following your dreams and making the world a better place; you have a heart of gold. It takes courage and motivation to do what you are doing; and those features about you are my favorite! We are going to crush the rest of 2018 together and make your 26th lap around the sun the best yet! Muah muah muah!!!!
Reunited and taking on Brasil! This past week has been filled with so much adventure including endless Portuguese, Forró dance classes, even more endless supplies of açaí, jungle hikes and new friends! Oh, and being with this one hasn’t been the worst either! 💃🇧🇷🔥
Deeeep Mexico with the crew! Checkout my latest video (link in my bio) to see what it’s like to take a van full of toys and your best friends to a paradise that’s very far off the beaten path! This video is part 1 of the trip and shows what the daily life is like down south! Spoiler - @calebfarro rips on a Moto! Let me know what you think!? 🇲🇽
Back in the mountains! Excited to be ripping around the US and Canada over the next 24 days skiing 17 spots. We already checked off Big Sky in Montana and are currently underway in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. We are making a daily video at @tetongravity for each stop (day 1 is live!) and have been keeping the Insta-story loaded up as well! Follow along and see you all on the slope! Oh and @justinmayers has been renamed Mr. Lee Gend for his skills behind his new fancy pantsy camera! #snowselfie #shallowdepthoffieldbutsophisticatedsubject
Missing this little sandy bum! 😍🔥 After three weeks together on the North Shore, it felt like the closest thing to a routine we’ve ever had together! CrossFit, surf, açaí bowl, yoga, beach and repeat! Since the beginning we’ve had a transient, vagabond relationship chasing each other to different places. Having these past three weeks (in a house and not our van!) has been a rad change. A routine is the best way to clean up the eating, get in shape, progress in the sports we love and have time for each other! That all being said, it’s almost time we mix it up again and hit the road. But first, come back to Hawaii. ❤️
No trip to Jackson Hole would be complete without hiking the Headwall. What’s at the top you ask? North facing snow only accessible to those willing to hike up to it. Oh, and some pretty tasty views! 💯⛰🤙 @springhillsuites #jackson #skiing #hiking #jhdreaming
Jamming on the sleds in the Teton National Park was awesome! Felt great to be a sled-neck for a day and what a backdrop! ⛰💯 @springhillsuites | #jacksonhole #tetons #snowmobile
Jackson Hole was rad for many reasons but especially because of these rainbows called “sun dogs”! ☀️🐶🌈 I hope everyone in Jackson has a legendary season! @springhillsuites | #jhdreaming #jacksonhole #wyoming #skiing #sundog
Traded the beach for some snow! I’ve always heard so many epic things about Jackson Hole so it was great to finally make it out here and experience what all the hype is about. The hype is real. Epic. 🏖❄️ Thanks for hosting us @springhillsuites 🤙 | #jacksonhole #skiing #jhdreaming #wyoming #sponsored
Sky falling with twin Bro (link to the 4K madness is in my bio)! Can you tell who is who!? 🤔😈🔥
Each day is yours to conquer. #nobaddays
