While breaking through the ice during our warmest day in Greenland this quickly became the best seat in the house. As temperatures rise this is what September can look like in the Arctic. Sub-Zero one second & t-shirt no shoes weather as soon as the wind dies & sun comes out. Funny that I packed my hammock for India but only managed to use it in Greenland. Somedays it feels like the world is turning upside down.⠀

"Ever since I was a kid, it was always my dream to experience the Grand Canyon" says @shainblumphotography, who photographed an unreal sky lighting up this magnificent natural wonder. We're certainly grateful he realized this dream and is sharing it with us in this epic capture.

In a bird's eye view from above, Falcor is seen at the edge of transitions just off Flint Island during the #lines2hi adventure. Flint was one of several tiny islands that Roamers @email@example.com@instagraham.1123 and @amory_ross explored in the Line Island chain. This uninhabited Southern Line Island is only 2.5 miles long and 0.5 miles wide at its widest point.
See the whole adventure in the @roam original short film - Lines to Hawaii. Link in bio.
This wave this never gets old. It's one of the best pieces of nature ever delivered. Starts with a unique storm, a huge distance to travel, light off shore winds on its journey & on its arrival the perfect reef shape to deliver the perfect wave. Pity it's too big to be paddled into.⠀

This was shot on Lofoten. A chain of islands in northern Norway 300km north of the arctic circle. The rock formation is called Svolværgeita, aka the "Goat of Svolvær“ which is the village in the background. After climbing the right hand tower it’s kind of a trial of courage to jump the "horns of the goat" over to the second tower. It’s actually a lot scarier than it looks because you lift off from a very small inclined plane and it's super exposed. The landing area on the other tower is equally inclined – unfortunately in the wrong direction. So you risk to either jump too short a distance and hit the edge or jump too far and slide over the other edge. Sarcastically, there’s a graveyard right below. It certainly is one of those places where it’s advisable to stick the landing ;-)
I jumped it myself a couple years back and severely twisted my ankle during the landing. Bad luck but an incredible experience that I don’t want to miss.

From the first and only time so far I've managed to catch the Yosemite Firefall. It's during that special time of year when at sunset, if you're lucky, Horsetail Falls lights up and glows as if it's on fire. Surreal doesn't even begin to describe it.

A moment we won’t soon forget.
After climbing a super steep/sketchy staircase down to that beautiful white sand beach, we made it back up to the main viewpoint with some time before sunset.
The clouds looked thick and a decent sunset seemed very doubtful. We almost just headed back to the hotel but decided to wait around for sunset instead. And wow, am I glad we did!
It was one of the best sunsets I’ve seen in a long time and definitely one of the best/maybe the best beach I’ve ever been to.

Gliding along the contours of the Earth never looks so good as @jtholmesjr jumps off a cliff called The Beak during a shoot on Baffin Island. The team, which included @dirkcollins and @jimmy_chin, was extremely remote—a 100-mile sled dog or snowmobile ride from a small village. With a weather delayed helicopter never showing up the crew made the best of their situation climbed every peak they from. With 24 hours of light they worked around the clock and pulled the project off in style. “This was the last shot of the trip and JT had to fly out around a rock prow in order to pull his canopy down low near the glacier as I tracked with him on a huge lens. It was a critical shot and a bit of a Hail Mary with all the moving pieces," says Dirk, "but we pulled it off and the shot and project came out incredible."

Wait for it! @tylerwright surfs her way to the end of this epic, open-barrel man-made wave. Using cutting edge science, @kswaveco has created the longest rideable wave of its kind.⠀

While out searching for a new dive site we stumbled upon this amazing wave near Selvagem Pequena Island in the middle of the Atlantic. We decided to have a look under it and found an amazing reef-mount full of life. Always expect the unexpected out here.
