Cave exploration along the rugged and remote coast of Karpathos Island, Greece.
This was shot a few years ago while on assignment for GoPro when we were traveling around the Island with a small production team creating content for the release of the GoPro Hero 5.
We had some extremely challenging weather conditions this trip which forced us to get creative but working under pressure is something I’ve always enjoyed. The crazy conditions resulted in us finding this beautiful cave tucked away from the 40 mph winds. @chelseakauai was excited as always to get back in her natural element.
Location- Karpathos Island, Greece.
Camera- GoPro Hero 5 with a dome port.

The last 3 days were crazy! We were shooting a project for Red Bull and the weather was terrible, but with a helicopter and an epic crew we were able to rig an unbelievable highline in a super remote part of Utah.
Check out the last video, I love the perspective it gives on Ryan’s final walk.
Feel free to ask me any questions about my gear or any other questions you might have.
Huge thanks to @handsomerobinson, @iflyheli, @tobinsanson and the rest of the crew for letting me tag along on this awesome adventure :)

Working hard or hardly working?😂🙌🏼
The reality is that these projects take an incredible amount of energy, time, research, caffeine and teamwork but there is no better feeling than being outside surrounded by great people and working with a dream client like @toyotausa.
Check out their IGTV post where we adventured all around my hometown of San Diego, CA and got up to all kinds of epic adventures!

The Southern Oregon coast is like a treasure chest, with every little pullout and trail there are hidden gems to be found. Just watch out for lots of poison oak!
I’m currently on the search for the Goonies treasure. ☠️👑💰🏴‍☠️

Adventures are better with friends!
I’m forever grateful that I’ve been able to turn my passions into a career, hire my friends to “work” with me and collaborate with a brand like @toyotaUSA that I’ve grown up surrounded by and loving my whole life.
What a way to spend a day in my hometown of San Diego, CA- flying paragliders over the mountains, surfing along the coast, off-roading through the desert, highlining, bonfires and more.
Stay tuned for the video coming soon.

The last 7 days we’ve driven countless hours but the quick stops along the way have been epic. Yesterday’s adventure was one of my favorites!
Morning light shining into a lava tube with @jo_savagephotography. These tubes were created by volcanic activity and flowing lava thousands of years ago.

I also threw in some behind the scenes videos and our camp set up for the night 🚐👌🏼

Thousands of fish swirled around us as we spent some time hanging out in their world.

Photo 1: The Orion constellation rising and glowing over Yosemite Valley just as the clouds parted from a snowstorm.
Photo 2: The third “star” down off of Orion’s Belt is actually a Nebula!
Photo 3: A closer look at M42 (the Orion Nebula) that I took with a telescope. At its core, thousands of stars and planets have been born and we can even see the beginning stages of solar system formations.

We’ve been searching through the universe for a long time and still haven’t been able to find a planet like ours, let’s all continue to do our best in protecting and appreciating this INCREDIBLE place we call home!
Happy Earth Day 🌍

I’ve recently realized that the only thing better than hiking through a breathtaking landscape is literally flying above it!
This is where I’ve been spending a lot of my time lately and I’m excited to start using paragliding to bring a new perspective to my photography!

Huge thanks to @ozoneparagliders & @flytpg for helping make this dream come true! 🙏🏼🙌🏼

Today is my birthday and I still can’t get over how incredible this whole journey has been!
A few days ago while I was under the stars in Death Valley National Park I finally realized the one thing I would LOVE for my birthday!

This is not “sponsored” or an “ad”. It’s just my way of trying to give back and help protect the places that have inspired me. I’d be so honored if you could take three minutes to donate $5 (the cost of a cup of coffee) to the National Parks Foundation!
Just click the link in my profile and leave a comment below with a “💪🏼” emoji if you donate. I’ll be giving an annual National Park Pass to TWO people that have donated! {CLOSED}

This is such an easy way to give back and make sure these beautiful places stay protected for us and future generations. Hopefully, these passes give YOU more opportunities to be inspired by our magnificent world!

CONGRATS to @its.matchu and @riaalynn for winning the passes 🙌🏼. Thanks again to everyone for all of your love and support 🙏🏼❤️

I took some necessary time off to disconnect from social media and find more balance in my life over the last few months. It’s been great for me to reconnect with loved ones, work on the fundamentals of my business, and feel reinspired with the path I have chosen!
This whole journey has been a wild ride. I’ve had to take more leaps of faith than I ever would have imagined and I wouldn't change it for anything.
Thanks again to all of you who have been following and supporting my journey, and stay tuned for some exciting stuff coming soon :) Photo by my good friend @handsomerobinson.

Tonight is the final Supermoon of the year and I’ll be spending it surfing under the moonlight with friends🏄‍♂️🌕!
This image was taken around 5:45am this morning while @lex.weinstein was soaking up the moonlight here in Mexico. Check out those the perfect waves in the distance too 😍🙌🏼.

I encourage you all to step outside and take a minute to look up at the moon and stars tonight if you have the chance! #supermoon
