Travis Rice And Co. Journey Through The Pacific In Search Of Surf And Microplastics

We all know Travis Rice as one of the best snowboarders in the world, but in was last year's Red Bull Media House film The Fourth Phase we were introduced to Travis as an experienced sailor. For his latest expedition, Rice grabbed big-wave surfer Ian Walsh, friend Graham Scott, and cameraman Amory Ross and set sail on his trusty Catamaran Falcor for a 2500 nautical mile voyage from Tahiti to Hawaii. 

Travis and the crew's journey was two-part: To see if the remote Line Islands offer any surf, and to collect water samples every 100 miles which they would send into adventure scientists to test for microplastics. Surf was found, and unfortunately so were microplastics. Even in some of the most remote water on earth, of the 22 water samples taken on the voyage, 73% contained microplastics.

This here is every high-altitude climbers’ worst nightmare. An enormous avalanche broke loose in the Chipurson Valley of Pakistan as two mountaineers were walking up the valley beneath it, forcing them to run for cover behind some boulders. Probably would have been a good idea to get out of the way before it bears down on you…

What Does it Take To Break The Grand Teton Speed Record?

Well, the short answer is: training. For recent Jackson Hole transplant Stephen Mulherin, chasing a vertical dream turned out to be tougher than anticipated. The 24-year old’s mission is pretty simple: run up hills and try to be the fastest one to do so. He balances life as a full-time river guide with 14+ mile runs after work and competing in the town’s many uphill races like the Rendezvous Hill Climb at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. He currently holds the third fastest time on the Grand
