Jeremy Jones/Teton Gravity Research Working on Sequel to Deeper

  Well, it's officially the worst time of year for snowboard stoke. Because nearly every U.S. resort is closed or closing within the next couple of weeks. But here's some stoke anyway: Further, the sequel to TGR/Jeremy Jones' award-winning, groundbreaking, big-mountain snowboard film Deeper, released last fall, is coming in fall 2012.

Terrifyingly Awesome: Swinglining Moab's Canyons

Man, I'm really behind on all-out adrenaline sports. I've barely gotten my mind around slacklining, and here comes a little something called swinglining. It's kind of like the canyon swings that you find in places like Glenwood Springs, Colorado and New Zealand, only of the DIY variety. No further explanation required: Via The Goat

Mountain Climber Tumbles 1,000 Feet, Walks Away To Tell The Tale

  On his feet reading a map. That's how one rescuer described the scene in Scotland this past weekend. Now, if the victim had been simply lost or out of supplies, you'd expect to find him like that. But seeing as how Adam Potter just tumbled down 1,000 feet of near-vertical mountain, rescuers were shocked and had to retrace his fall line through dropped gear in order to be sure this was the guy that...

Lights Out! Surfing a 30-Foot Hawaiian Break In The Dark

  Many young children figure out something that they eventually forget: things are more fun in the dark. Remember those games of manhunt you played when you were 10? During the day, that would have just been a bunch of goofy kids running playing hide-and-seek for no reason. But at night, it was friggin' manhunt. Often adults forget that important lesson, but big kids tend to remember. And some find out that the rule even...

Pre/Early-Season Stoke: Slashing Powder in Utah Red-Rock Country

Last week, Billy Brown dropped some sweet, early-season stoke footage from the Tetons. So I figure it's my turn. The footage below is a short but incredible little backcountry epic filmed by Utah's Provo brothers in the high desert of southern Utah. At first blush, it might look like Bryce Canyon National Park, but it's actually the similar (but less regulated) Cedar Breaks National Monument. The amazing contrast of sharp, red rock and dry, desert...
