In our modern world so beautifully illustrated in digital images it’s easy to forget the value of the printed photograph. With literally billions of pictures making their way through cyber space every second of every day few of us take the time to preserve those fleeting moments of our lives that are quickly forgotten but can be instantly retrieved with a few mouse clicks on a computer or taps on the touch screen of an iPad. With Facebook and Instagram we catalog and share these captured bits of...

I have a soft spot in my heart for anyone with the audacity to believe he can fly. I’m even more impressed by those who actually figure out a way to make it happen. So whenever I see one of these wonderful maniacs fall I want to do all that I can to help them get back on their feet.

Norwegian adventurers Inge Wegge and Jorn Ranum had heard about some legendary surf waves, high up in the north Atlantic Ocean, in an island bay off the Norwegian coast. To test the rumour, they travelled to the island, built a hut out of driftwood and found materials, and spent nine cold, dark winter months north of the Arctic Circle, riding the waves. Their film of this unlikely adventure, North of the Sun, has won the Grand Prize at the 2013 Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival. “If it’s possible...

Adventure Media Review, Film Review, Highlining, Life Out Loud, Slacklining / 28.10.2013

Perhaps one of the most critical questions that most any adventurer will ask themselves is, why? Once you get past the ego and obsession to achieve glory for having accomplished some amazing feat of athletic skill or daring everyone who risks the fortunes of life at some point will have to reconcile within their hearts and minds the purpose for which they dedicated even the least significant moments of their time on Earth and put everything on the line.
