Top 7 Post-Ski Stretches

This sea­son remem­ber to do it before you hit the hot tub or bar.

Skiers may not real­ize the impor­tance mobil­ity and flex­i­bil­ity plays into improv­ing func­tion, range of motion, and per­for­mance. Ade­quate flex­i­bil­ity, espe­cially in the hips, allows for bet­ter speed, turns, and cuts. The post-ski stretch is an impor­tant fac­tor in main­tain­ing mobil­ity through­out the kinetic chain. Before you hit the hot tub or bar, be sure to spend a few min­utes stretch­ing Hold each pose for 30 to 45 sec­onds. If the stretch is one-sided, repeat the stretch on the alter­nate side. Standing

180 South Tents – A Clymb Exclusive

Two Clymb employ­ees put 180 South tents to the test at the Deschutes River.

I pitched the Juniper 2 in a juniper grove entirely by acci­dent. Myself, and a buyer at The Clymb, Brett Cas­sidy, were camp­ing at the Deschutes River and we had the good for­tune to give these new 180 South tents that are exclu­sive to The Clymb a trial run. The world-famous salmonfly hatch was on, and a cur­sory glance at the river­bank grass revealed these thumb-sized bugs in abun­dance. I was anx­ious to wet my line, so I jumped out of

Time to beat the clock.

You run the roads, map your routes, and now you want to take the strength you’ve built and apply it to the track — then here’s the shoe for you. This new rac­ing flat from New Bal­ance is what you need to beat the clock. Its light­weight, low-profile design will make it feel like smoke is fly­ing off your heels. Yet these are not Michael Johnson’s golden shoes. They won’t dis­in­te­grate after a few laps. They find the bal­ance between



Archie Kalepa: Master Waterman and Messenger

Mas­ter water­men uti­lize ancient Poly­ne­sian tech­nol­ogy to spread positive message.

In the past few years, the use of the word “water­man” has become a pop­u­lar way to describe some­one with a cer­tain mas­tery of the ocean.  Using a vari­ety of tools, they inter­act with the water in a way that leaves most peo­ple in awe. They have an uncanny abil­ity to read the signs of the sea and use it to their benefit—whether to har­vest fish, nav­i­gate between islands, or to catch a per­fect wave.  Yet some peo­ple out there defy the

8 Unique Holiday Celebrations from Around the World

So sorry drunken uncle Frank, we’re hol­i­day­ing over­seas with bet­ter drunks this year.

Dec­o­rat­ing a tree, shop­ping, and fire­works are all great and time-honored ways to cel­e­brate the hol­i­days in Amer­ica, but other parts of the world have their own unique take on the sea­son. We all like to be home for the hol­i­days, but if you can’t, maybe these cel­e­bra­tions will give you the inspi­ra­tion to travel instead. See­ing these fes­tiv­i­ties first-hand is a great reminder of the how, regard­less of where we’re from, how much this time of year means to
