Can tripods be better? i have always had a love/ hate relationship with tripods. two years ago i sat with my friend peter discussing all the issues i i found with the bulky modern day design & he told me about an idea he had that at the time i thought was impossible. well today is the day, the kickstarter for the completely revolutionized tripod is here and i am psyched. i have been keeping my lips sealed for the last few months & i’m so stoked to finally share what i have been using the last few months.
get to know @peakdesign ‘s completely rebuilt from the ground up tripod in my bio link.
smaller, lighter with about a hundred more improvements.

I find great peace knowing there are cultures where things like morning rituals & friendship are still a priority. these two fisherman were here well before the sunrise simply talking & prepping tackle like it was another day, paying no regard to the beauty of the sunrise over mt fuji. .
it felt like a good personal reminder to myself, someone who has prioritized work and chasing beauty like this over friendship for many years.
Komorebi -translates to “sunshine filtering through leaves.” few languages give such attention to detail and description as japanese. that word sums up this experience climbing in the japanese forest pretty well @chris_sharma
Hokkaido is the snowiest place on earth. attempting to surf in this region is a mixture of luck and near perfect planning.
we sadly found neither despite driving 48 hours to find it. the sea ice was the barrier between nonexistent surf. @prana
Never envisioned when i was 16 years old i would meet the love of my life. thanks for being the alpaca raising, kid wrestling, horse & animal loving wife/ mom that i always dreamt of. for never letting me choose the easy path... and supporting my crazy hair brained ideas. definitely the only good thing i took away from high school. 😅
love you @brea_face happy mother’s day.
ps - this picture is always my favorite because you are 6 months pregnant with jeremiah & glowing 😊
Real...raw experiences. the ones that leave scars, push you to tears & force you to question how strong you are mentally and physically. that is what life is for. i scrolled through my phone today & found this video clip from the making of “under an arctic sky” a film i’m proud to say has inspired millions to get out and seek the unknown, but i also pushed me and the team to the breaking point. none of that would have been possible without some huge sacrifices from some amazing people.
if you haven’t seen the film or the behind the scenes check it on itunes or netflix. or just watch it again ! . @renan_ozturk@taylorfreesolo@sweatpantsmedia@russell_holliday@benweiland
