Underwater in the Bahamas

THE BAHAMAS, it should go without saying, are surrounded by water. And as a guest of the Caribbean island(s) nation I was surrounded by water too. Thank god. Because this water is awesome – sometimes placid and clear, sometimes tempestuous and rough – the water had a personality all its own. Using my Gopro I tried to captured all of the various temperaments of the water that The Bahamas enjoys. I had a great time fishing, snorkeling, beach combing and exploring with my fellow adventurers Lee Abbamonte, Matt Kepnes, Mike Richard and Matt Long. This ‘Guys Trip’ to the ‘Bro-hamas’ was made possible by Bahamas...

Screen Shot: kayaking in West Sweden

I ENDED AN AMAZING SUMMER season of travel with a kayaking trip in West Sweden. The Outdoor Academy of Sweden invited me and 40 or so other journalists, adventure tour operators and gear manufacturers for several days of paddling and camping. Our playground was the Bohuslän coast and the 8,000 islands that rise out of the calm waters. These screen shots were taken from my GoPro video I created on the trip.Watch THE VIDEO of my adventures and READ THE ARTICLE on Matador Network – if you are looking for a little more Swedish armchair adventure.

[VID] Flowrider in Clearwater, Florida – hang ten and eat shit!

WATCH THIS! Oh man, I suck at surfing…but when I found myself at the Flowrider in Clearwater, FL I simply couldn’t help myself! Hundreds of gallons of water are pumped up a soft incline that creates the perfect conditions for indoor surfing…or indoor falling on your face.Link text When you are tired of the beach (if that is possible) cross the street to Surf-Style and step into the muggy glass chamber known as the Flowrider… Watch more Clearwater videos at tripfilms.com The Diamond PR crew of travel ninjas and I got soaked and had a helluva time spinning, flailing, splashing and crashing on the Flowrider – just steps from our rooms at the Sandpearl Resort. If you need more Flowrider mayhem I highly suggest you check out Ryan Gargiulo’s sweet vid (you can spot him here in mine). If you need more GoPro in your life check out my GP playlist on...
Helicopter ride over the Sierras

Helicopter ride over the Sierras

Thank you SKY TIME, you helped me kick one more gotta-do-it item off my bucket list! My helicopter ride over the Sierra’s and beyond was truly one of the most memorable nature experiences of my life. Readers, if you are in the Mammoth Lakes area and would like to experience the ride of your life – these are your guys. Rides start at $88. My visit to Mammoth Lakes was supported by the Westin Monache Resort, a lovely property right at the base of the mountain, Visit Mammoth and the Outdoor Writers Association of California. The blades sped and started to create the characteristic thumpa-thumpa-thumpa-thumpa-thumpa sound that shakes the air. I have never been in a helicopter before and now I sit in the glass bubble that is the cockpit of a Robinson R66Turbine, a shiny, high-altitude flying machine. I fidget with my headphones, grinning at my own reflection in the glass. The machine began to vibrate. The noise grows and I realize that the headphones are necessary to hear anything the pilot says and the noise grows louder. The blades blur now and there is a moment when the weight of the machine begins to lift from the hardware and the the runway only clings to the copter by grains of dirt. Then I see our shadow, spinning blades, swooping lines of flight and I am aghast with rapture. Our little world inside the flying machine is more tumultuous than I had expected – you felt the flying, the air temperature changes, the updraft that shoves the helicopter around, the dips and ascensions. It is amazing. We swing...
