Alex Andrews "Off The Frey"

Plug “froth” or “stoke” or “psyched” into a Google Search and the mug of the perpetually positive pro snowboarder from Utah, Alex Andrews, should pop up. With a smile that no hail storm could scrub off his face, the “Froth God” reminisces about the recent trip to Patagonia.

Boys on the Backs of Beasts by Jeff Johnson

The morning is cloudy with a cold bite in the air. Andres Kempel, a big-game hunting and fishing guide, has arrived. He is quiet and confident, old-school. We watch from the other side of the fence as he tosses saddles around effortlessly, balancing a smoke in his mouth. Little by little we wander towards him, gravitating to his energy. He smiles crookedly and shakes our hands. One thing is clear: Andres is a man amongst boys. Roark has a rival.

Skipping town to uncover rare waves in fickle environments. "I have this problem with not letting a forecast go. From the time a swell comes onto my radar until the last set breaks my mind wanders through a maze of untapped fortune. It starts with the question; is it worth it?"

Blending into the journey: Jamaica with Jamie Thomas

Blending into the journey: Jamaica with Jamie Thomas

A vibrant island with hurricane-battered city streets, Jamaica’s far more famous for reggae, rastas and herbal remedies than skateboarding. Regardless, Jamie Thomas has that special quality to (literally) roll with any punch the journey throws at him, blending into environments like some kind of travel chameleon. “I’ve found that when going into some gnarly areas while traveling,” said Jamie, “if you have something that’s different or impresses the locals—like skateboarding for me—it’s kind of disarming in a good way…”
