I’ve always loved those hero stories that tend to come when you are in those low points on the trip. Like when @jquinny told me that he had pretty much sold anything of value to go on these surf over the last 10 years trips... garage sales & borrowed money were a normal part of the struggle for him to get a sponsor despite having been so successful on the contest circuit. When we got the cover shot this trip it was more than just a photo on the front page. It really meant something to both of us... it meant that all that sacrifice was worth it.

@lukeditella @chrisburkard, let’s just plan something. Surf/hike/ski.

I have been told (very lovingly) that I can be a terrible flying partner. My head is constantly out the window letting in the cold air. But then again, how can you blame me.

@petehalvorsen This count be us if you werent always traveling @slatertrout 🌊(_!_) 📷

Siberian winds never felt so good. Japan has quickly become one of my favorite places on earth, every experience whether surf or snow has introduced me to a different part of its delicate culture. Excited to be heading back at the end of this month for a project I have been dreaming about for a few years now.

There is something so much sweeter about a view like this when you have worked for it. I woke up at 12:30 am and rode 212 miles by bike to Santa Cruz. After the first 6 hours (halfway) in pitch black the highlight was arriving here at sunrise without a soul around and stretching my tired legs. Still only halfway. No real goal in mind other than to experience a place like the California coast a little deeper, maybe a bit more patiently through heavy breath & a little sweat equity.

@roam Have fun over there Chris!

@jordanherschel Ooooooo yes!

33 years around the sun. I’ve spent many birthdays far from home & loved one in remote parts of the world and I can attest that nothing compares to being home with my wife, kids & alpacas today. 
Thanks to all those who have made these last few rotations around the sun extra special... you’ve brought more joy into my life than you will ever know.

@raycollinsphoto I’m on the 17th ♓️

@roam Stoked happy birthday dude!

The countries that I’ve been to & the places I’ve experienced are only as special as the people that I have had the chance to share them with. I would say that every worthwhile picture I have ever taken has been the by-product of a good relationship, or a friend who has shown me the way. Often I get asked how many countries I have been to and the answer is not many.. because I would rather go back to the same places over and over in order to foster those relationships and develop something deeper than just a few pretty photographs. I think that the key to creating a meaningful body of work is rooted in how much time you are willing to invest in a place without the camera. .

Thanks @ellithor & @ingoolsen for showing me this one many years ago

Wow.. blown away by the support from y’all for keeping Norway’s Lofoten Islands oil free. Here is another gem that keeps me feeling drawn to this special place.. truly one of Earth’s great treasures.
