Welcome to Queenstown

•••
What a ride it's been, those last 10 days in New Zealand. I'm writing this from my flight back to San Francisco, still buzzing from the crazy load of impressions and experiences I've been able to collect over the past few days. The pain in my upper right arm puts a smile on my face as it transports me right back to the feeling of sitting front row rafting do[...]

Through the eyes of Nick Law

•••
I met Nick Law, an outdoor athlete and photographer, during my last summer holidays. He was in charge of recording the surfers' life at Pure Surf Camp in Moliets et Maa (Atlantic Coast of France) and I was absolutely captivated about his work. With his prior studies in Fine Arts he has an eye for special moments and compositions and is constantly trying new [...]

The Crest of Surf Photography

•••
What I love about photography is the fact that it can take you to places you've never been to and open up worlds you might have never discovered yourself. A single picture can say more than a thousand words and carry more emotions than the longest love letter. Looking for this kind of inspiration, I like to sit down for a few minutes and browse the web for s[...]

Snowboarding in Norway is good. No, really it is. I never thought I'd type that sentence after ten years snowboarding in the Alps and only in the Alps, but yes, snowboarding in Norway is good.

10 cool Ice-Skating Rinks around the World

•••
The days are getting shorter and there’s a definite chill in the air… Yes, here in the UK, it looks like winter’s here again. We’re breaking out the faux fur, shopping for winter boots, eating like hamsters preparing for hibernation and trying to get our heads round the clock change and the fact it feels like midnight at 8pm. But instead of holing up [...]

Top 5 things to do on the Andaman Coast, Thailand

•••
*Sigh*. The Andaman Coast along the province of Krabi, Thailand… full of beautiful sandy beaches, warm calm turquoise waters, heat-stroke inducing sun, tropical landscapes and most magnificently, the incredible limestone geology that results in high and sporadic rugged yellowed cliffs leaping out of the ground! What a place! I've always carried fon[...]

Stunning landscape. Amazing surf. Beautiful ladies. Awesome waves. Insane surf tricks. Incredible cinematography. I cannot think of anymore ways to describe this insanely great, short, conceptual film featuring the talented Dion Agius doing his thing in the world’s best wave pool in the Middle East’s Abu Dhabi. Globe’s ‘Electric Blue Heaven’ portrays [...]

Get your move on with free Zumba classes in Cairns

•••
Something I always look out for when I travel is how a particular area or city is providing for their inhabitants, in terms of cultural landscaping but also how innovative they are in creating a comfortable living space for locals and visitors alike. During my recent visit to Queensland and the city of Cairns in particular, one of the first things that ca[...]
