Filmmaker Krystle Wright smashes it with another uplifting collection of outdoor women doing their thing... Don't change a thing!

Anna Paxton

An ode to the athlete who relishes in getting dirty, who chuckles after a long day in the mountains, effortlessly glides through the crystal clear waves and most importantly, is unapologetic in pursuing their love of getting rowdy in adventures. Director Krystle Wright brings this next installment since the wild things never stopped playing.

Gloriously beautiful and enjoyable Swedish ice skating film.

Paul Hodgson Music Judge

A Nordic Skater is a very first film about this little known sport. It features Per Sollerman, a photographer who has been skating on frozen lakes and fjords for the past 10 years. During 6 captivating minutes, the viewer is transported to the region of Oslo to have a peek at a story of a man who uses every sense he has to travel on thin ice. Per tells the story of how the little known sport of nordic skating came to play a big part in his life. “It is rooted deep in our bones that we need to be out in the nature,” he says.

Three years ago, as a result of falling down an escalator, 33-year-old former estate agent Daniel Wilson became paralysed from the waist down following severe hemorrhaging during vital spinal surgery. Fuelled by the pure adrenaline that comes from this exhilarating and perilous sport, this is Dan’s second time in attempting to master adaptive skiing. However, despite facing the hazardous mountain terrain, being away from his home in the UK presents a much larger challenge. With regular medication needed as well as constant maintenance of various physical ailments, Dan must not neglect his health and daily care routine, despite being immersed in the excitement and intensity of the trip. 24-year-old vlogger Isaac Harvey was born with limb/pelvis hypoplasia, a condition that means Isaac has short legs, no arms and must use his feet for all of his daily activities. This is Isaac’s first time on the mountain, and with the aid of Deffi Sports, an adaptive ski company, he will be fitted into a customised chair that is perfectly adapted to his body. For the week, all of Isaac’s trust is placed in the hands of those who control his chair. Travelling at speeds of 40MPH down the mountain, Isaac must give up control of his own movement and summon the strength to not succumb to extreme motion sickness. In 2010, former scaffolder Geoff Gaynord fell and broke his back at work. He awoke to find a doctor telling him that he would never walk again. Since the accident, this ski trip is Geoff’s first time travelling outside the UK alone. Through the mental and physical exertion that the week demands, from starting out with an assistant to tackling the slopes by himself, Geoff will discover the sheer adrenaline, liberation and new-found freedom that skiing offers.

And breathe out....

While we thrive on following adrenaline fuelled adventures, this opportunity to take some time and embrace the peace and tranquility that Gilly experiences in her time ice swimming was a true pleasure. Whilst a hostile and unforgiving environment, to most, the presence of mind and calmness is a true inspiration and something that actually translates to all of our day to day encounters.

Slo-mo pow fest

Terrific high impact skiing eye candy with great music

Paul Hodgson Music Judge

A cinematic, high-caliber short film featuring the best shots from a full winter with pro skier Sammy Carlson. There is no story, but we are using the theme of 'time' through voice over, time-lapses, Phantom 4K shots, and nature to supplement the shredding. It was filmed purely in the heart of B.C. backcountry; powder, pillows, lines, backcountry booters, and a bunch of quality follow-cam.

A savage portrait of life-long sibling rivalry masquerading as a bike advert.

Paul Hodgson Music Judge

Our stories are all different, yet the same, and the names are endless: Adventure buddy, co-pilot, copy-cat, tag-along, queen, king... The list is long, but what it boils down to is simply brother or sister, or as I like to put it, best friend, worst enemy. Childhood was like one giant experiment and, being the younger sibling, my fate as human guinea pig was sealed from the get-go. But like Dad always said, "Every scar is one part story, and one part wisdom," and by the age of 10 us kids could have opened our own library. Over the years, we gained a lot of “wisdom” together, trying to best each other and take on the world. Through it all, bikes have fueled our adventures, sparked our imaginations, led us through a few battles, and continually reminded us of what’s most important: we’re all family.

Awesome adventure, maybe try it in summer next time. And perhaps skip the Egg Coffee?

An 84-hour bikepacking ramble through Scotland’s gloomy Grampians. Alighting the Sleeper Train at the highest, remotest station on the West Highland Line, a group of cyclists head off on an opportunistic journey to ride the old-established network of gravel drove roads ... only to find themselves bogged-down exploring the alluring voids in between. That’s why they’re called push bikes, after all...

Uncovering the secrets of the past in his own backyard, runner Bo traces the tracks of an old railway line, bushwhacking, fence-hopping, and hoping the neighbours won't shoot...

Beau Miles lives next to the old Warragul-Noojee Railway line, which snaked for 43km through the foothills of Mt. Baw Baw, and ran from 1892-1954. You can still see the line now as strange scars across paddocks and bold cuttings through the sides of hills. Overgrown, private, exposed, or hard to find, Beau aims to re-run the train line, picking up and finding the stations of yesteryear.
