Earth Adventures

  1. In November/December 2011, Ben Marr, Rush Sturges, Tyler Bradt and expedition leader Steve Fisher ran successfuly the first descent of the infamous Inga Rapids - known as the world's biggest rapids - located on the Congo river, in the Democratic Republic of Congo in Africa. This short film is a condensed version of the 80 minutes movie recaping their breathtaking adventure. (more info about the movie: ingaproject.com)

  2. Spring Break Snowboards were conceived as a vacation from conventional board design where the looser the shape of the deck and more uncommon the ingredients translates to more flavor being brought to the party. Corey Smith is the mad scientist behind Spring Break and each handmade creation is a study in abstract descent theory. Check out this documentation of the latest Spring Break test expedition from Mt. Bachelor, OR.

  3. Arguably one of the top mountain bike trails on the planet. Linking up several Moab favourites, this trail spans almost 30 miles and has a cumulative descent of over 8,000 feet.

    The beauty of this ride is not just the sheer scale of it - but its diversity. Starting in high alpine forest at Burro Pass, the ride transitions to aspens, high desert and finishes off plummeting down to the Colorado River on exposed singletrack.

    The type of riding if vastly diverse as well: from slow, steep and technical rocky singletrack to wide open high speed sections and everything in between.

    My first time doing this ride could only be described as 'complete sensory overload'

    Riders: Chad G, Steve Cooke, Tom Bishop, Adam Simpson and myself.

  4. This is the English version of “Die Suchenden”. German version: vimeo.com/35127227

    It doesn’t matter, how good a descent is. At the end, I always ask the same question: Is there a better one? In order to find a final answer, we traveled to the Valais. This is the story of our search.

  5. A team of boaters ventured into the Black Canyon last fall to capture the full experience like never before.
    Rolf Kelly and myself filmed the project over 2 different descents of the canyon.
