Cold Stoke, Ep. 2: Snow Kiting in Crested Butte

Jason Slezak, Reo Stevens, Fletcher Chouinard and Brandon Clifford head to the Colorado mountains for a snow kiting mission in Crested Butte. If you missed it, check out Cold Stoke, Episode 1 from Alaska


There are plenty of people searching for the endless summer. But eventually summer turns to winter, and keeping the stoke going means learning how to handle the cold. For us, the warmer seasons are only half the story — when you learn how to handle the cold, you find there are whole worlds opening to you where the blank spaces of winter beckon and you can leave the crowds behind. Cold Stoke, a new series from Patagonia Surf, explores how we design and test the innovative equipment that lets surfers and kiters chase their passions in some of the planet’s coldest and least comfortable conditions. From Alaska to Antarctica, it’s a short tour through some of the fun and adventure we’ve found at the farthest edges of the map.

Bass Strait Paddleboard Crossing 

Here’s a short teaser for “A Date with The Strait” an upcoming TV mini series about the paddle Zeb Walsh, Jack Bark and Brad Gaul did a few weeks ago from Australia to Tasmania, across the notorious Bass Strait. YES, Australia to Tasmania. It’s the first time it has ever been done.

Big congrats to Zeb and the team!

KUZI Project - Poisonous African Spider Bite

What seemed like a harmless enough spider bite on Seth’s knee turned into a full-blown medical emergency and essential repatriation for treatment - and the premature end to the trip of a lifetime. Sometimes the best adventures don’t always turn out as expected, but that just makes planning for the next one that much more fun.
