WATCH: Imogen Caldwell’s 2019 Surf Edit Deserves Two Vimeo Staff Picks

Here in Wyoming, we like to think of ourselves as rugged folks from the still-somewhat-Wild West. The nearest real city is Salt Lake City, almost 300 miles south, and wildlife outnumbers humanity by a long shot. It's true that by contiguous-American standards, Wyoming is about as remote as one can get, but compared to Western Australia Wyoming is practically New York City.

Imogen Caldwell grew up in Red Bluff, Western Australia, a tiny community two hours from the nearest town and twelve hours from the nearest city. Homeschooled by her parents and the local surf breaks, it's no surprise that she seems more at home in the water than most of us are on solid ground.

Shot in Australia, France, Iceland, and Indonesia, this video is both a great introduction to one of the world's hottest up-and-coming surfers, and also a likely-unintentional tourism ad for Western Australia's stunning land and seascapes.

Jack Johnson never intended to become a musician, and neither did Ryan Bingham. Both songwriters were pursuing wildly different paths prior to their music careers. After becoming the youngest surfer to reach the finals at Pipeline Masters at the mere age of 17, Johnson’s surf career was looking bright. Meanwhile, Bingham’s focus was riding bulls at rodeos.  RELATED: Check out Volume I of the TGR Journal But through a strange twist of events, both musicians were forced to pivot and pursue new

Life in the Mentawais Looks Decidedly Chill During COVID-19

In these tumultuous times, there are some lucky spots on the planet that have remained largely unaffected. Among those are the Mentawai Islands, normally a surfing hotspot which have turned into a ghost town after a complete lockdown was put in place. While tourism might be a driving economic force, locals and the lucky few foreigners who are now stuck there have been experiencing the islands in ways nobody has in years.
