@travisburkephotography Ahhh missing this spot already 🏊‍♂️. So many epic locations to explore in the area, a second trip is definitely needed!

🤸‍️ Been workin’ on my handstands, I feel like they’re finally starting to come together! *Look closely, this is not a Cinemagraph (still shot laid over video)
⠀
After having traveled the world the past few years, I am beyond excited to round up some friends and be able to do some adventuring in my home state of California!! First stop and the top of my list is the Mt. Shasta landscape. Yes the water is freezing, but these hot days make it that much better  follow along on our @visitcalifornia adventures, I’ll be posting up photos throughout the week! #VisitCalifornia #RoadtripCalifornia

@brookslaich This is so sick!

Surfing the Sedona spires!!! ‍️  It’s pretty hard to describe the experience of floating 20-30 feet left to right while trying to maintain balance... all while managing the freak out of being incredibly exposed! But man it’s a blast. It’s this back and forth between the coolest feeling of levitating across the sky, and finding the absolute perfect angle to bounce off of at the edges... or you’re about to take a pretty hefty whip 🤪 // : @seandoctor

Sedona, Arizona
While it looks like an elegant maneuver, I’m almost positive this was a desperation reach   Such a RAD weekend competing at the  @mountaingamesvail!! It was a blast to compete in disciplines that are actually a bit out of my element, like freestyle trick comps. But it was really fun to push myself and be inspired by all of the talent at these games. Definitely going to be training harder for next year! Huge thank you to @GoPro for this opportunity and to the amazing team of people that made it all happen. The future just keeps getting brighter. ⠀

@roam Just desperation grabbing at the sun 😜

@brookslaich This is so sick!!!

#tbt to Tasmania, one of the wildest places in the world! The Moai tower is a sea stack that stands alone on this rugged coastline, jetting straight up out of the ocean and into the sky. This was the first time the line had ever been rigged and I was able to secure the ON-SIGHT SEND BABY! 🤘 Despite the anxiety of thinking the entire way across... “are we gonna pull this thing down?!” Rest assured, we did not pull it down  
BIG UPS TO @GOPRO for flying me out to Vail, Colorado for the GoPro Games!! Who’s coming?!

️Good morning, Yosemite  Posting this in reference to my last photo to answer a few questions. First off, yes, we did rig a highline there, and it was incredible ;) Second, in response to all of the safety near the edge comments, this is my solution: being harnessed in beyond the edge. It satisfies my desire to feel the call of the void, allows me to practice a moving meditation, all while appreciating the most beautiful places in the world.  Lastly, to address all of the words of council: while I appreciate where people are coming from in terms of safety, it still constantly confuses me how many people feel that they have some right to tell others how to live their lives, especially when it’s from the comfort of their couch. *disclaimer: I agree that too many people these days try dangerous things for the wrong reasons and without proper knowledge. I assure you that’s not the case with me. “He who jumps into the void owes no explanation to those who stand and watch.” - Jean-Lux Godard — thank you @scott_goodknight for this quote!!

Why is it that we have this desire to stand at the very edge of the cliff? Or on top of the tallest pinnacle? Is it a conquering thing? A desire to dominate? A tribute? Part of me thinks it’s because we want to feel close to death in order to feel closer to life. Part of me wonders if we just have a natural desire to fly. Or maybe it’s that we wish we could stand tall into the skies like these rock towers do. Maybe there isn’t an exact explanation, but it’s something I think about often. Thoughts?

Happy Memorial Day. No matter where we come from or what our beliefs are, we all have someone to be grateful for that has facilitated our freedom. Also, yes, I had a lot of fun making this... and I almost ate shit on the landing. // If you’re feeling patriotic and craving an ass kicking, I’m on my way out the door to do the MURPH challenge; I would implore you to do the same. If you don’t know what it is, google it. If you can’t do any part of it, do what you can. 🤘🇺🇸

@roam Well said Ryan!

Everything is balance... especially when it comes to how epic a project is. This is one of the sickest projects ever, but it came at a pretty gnarly cost of going hypothermic while stuck on the top of a desert tower scroll for a video). I mean, imagine trying to maintain composure enough to tip toe barefoot across a piece of floss in sub freezing temps while wind blows sideways snow in your face with a helicopter thumping at your chest, equipped with 3 cameras on your body... shivering uncontrollably. I lost feeling in my feet, hands, and face, could hardly see because I was shivering so hard and almost bit my tongue off because I was trying so hard to focus. But I’ve learned to smile through it. I try to remind myself that I won’t remember the pain if I succeed, but I sure as hell will remember the pain of giving up. // I can’t say thanks enough to the incredible team that made this possible : @travisburkephotography @iflyheli @tobinsanson @yogoskenz @redbull @blackdiamond @skreinfilms

@olloclip We celebrate you, Ryan and your gifts of courage and determination. You truly are inspiring. 🙌

@andrew.studer Looks like quite the adventure!!

I keep saying “this is the craziest thing I’ve ever done!” I swear I’m not exaggerating!!   __‍️__⠀// Seriously one of the raddest experiences with this talented team of people. I can’t even express how cool it was to be able to fly around this beautiful place and get to hand pick the sickest gap we could find and make it a reality. That said, it was also funny how, despite having access to a helicopter, we still got shut down! Luckily we were able to go back the next day and finish it, but not without a fight. I’ll post more about that soon 🤘 @redbull ⠀

@travisburkephotography Some cold, wet, hungry, tired dudes trying to pull off something epic! ...luckily it was a success 🙊🙌🏼😋. Stoked as always on our adventures ❤️

@roam Just keeps getting gnarlier

It’s impossible to express in words what this feels like. There is no way to make someone stand in the sky with 2,000 feet below you just to ‘get it.’ I can’t force anyone to grasp the angst and fear that occurs in my chest when I’m out there alone.. or the elation and joy of realizing the beauty in that majestic solitude. I can’t fill your lungs with a breath of air from the center of a cloud suspended over the earth... But I can try. ⠀
⠀
My art is not only walking these lines, but sharing it in a way that (hopefully) gets people a little bit closer to the sensations that rush through my body and my brain when I’m up there. I try to imagine how I can express it through photos and video, through sounds and sensations, through light and darkness. My hope is that it inspires you to go find these moments for yourselves, and bring your treasures back to share with us. ⠀

@calsnape Probably one of the wildest things I’ve seen. So much respect

It’s only a fall if you don’t get back up ⠀⠀

Dropping then soaring 10-30ft is one of the sickest feelings ever! These massive dynamic movements are so incredible to feel/explore, and they are some of the greatest teachers of balance in every range of tension. It’s also been such an amazing space to embrace falling and utilize it as a tool to create opportunities (also a great life lesson). This is my space to PLAY and make it fun! A place where falling is a very common occurrence and I’m pretty much laughing the entire time I’m on the line. This, my friends, is where progress is made. #traininggrounds⠀
