oceanmang I'm totally freaked out by heights and exposure when not strapped in like this.... Such a killer day getting after couloirs still holding snow and 1,500' descents :) Easy scrambles are enough to get my heart racing and legs shaking, but it always feels good to push the boundaries. I hope to continue on this path and in the mountaineering direction. More awesome photos from today's couloir hunt to come! #day116 #couloirhunting #fearandloathinginwyoming #bigmonday #find_away #summerfix #endlesswinter #thefrenchspy #bootedandfed #theyonlylivetogetradical #funhogging #notoverit #becauseitsthere #chasingstrange #bullfightsonacid #destinyunbound #spreadthestoke #adrenalinejunk #pleasedontfuckupmychi #absarokarange #thewuwei #alwaysascending #wearyshitass #boysclub #togwoteepass #youhaveonelifeliveit #outdooractivities #slowisswiftandswiftisfast #idratherbecrafting 1w

oceanmang Last month, sixty centimeters of blower dropped on Lake Louise's closing weekend with a solid base and cold temperatures. There, I rendezvoused with three friends from Telluride, Colorado, to catch a legendary spring storm. Want to see and hear more about this long strange trip?

oceanmang The saying "bitter sweet" holds true here in the Jackson Hole Valley, where the Snake River and all of it's tributaries are completely blown out after a DEEP winter ski season's melt-off. Within 12 hours of arriving home from a 53 day road trip I had the itch to wet a line and get after #thenativesnakeriverfinespottedcuttroattrout. But, if we were to find any clear and slow water in or around the valley, I knew we'd have to work for it. After polishing over some topographic maps and previous seasons notes, we set off on a 6 mile hike where we found great #highcountryflyfishing #grosventreswilderness #willhikeforfish #catchandrelease #rippinlips #slamminhogs #thewuwei #troutsniffer #onamissionfromgod #swinginbugs #funhogging #decompression #bigmonday #chasingstrange #whereistheholeinjackson #troutninja #boysclub #pleasedontfuckupmychi #readicculus #becauseitsthere #fluffstravels #doyouevenmountainmanbro #offseasondiaries 1mon

oceanmang I LOVE Berners! This big guy's name is Herman and he lives in Bellingham, Washington. After being on the road for so long without my dog, Herman gave me some much needed slobbers, hugs and big dog stoke :) I was super keen on this spot in which many locals consider to be the best view in Bellingham #localsonly #coastallynomadic #bernesemountaindogs #dogdaysofsummer #theroadislife #bellinghamlife #bullfightsonacid #chasingstrange #zencowboys #luminouscreatures #funhogging #duskpatrol #sansuci #anotherroadsideattraction #puravida #fearandloathinginbellingham #decompression #simplesmilesandgoodtimes #pleasedontfuckupmychi #offseasondiaries #thewuwei #onamissionfromgod #thecorneroftheglobe #readicculus #theoceanbreathessalty #wherethewildthingsare 1mon

oceanmang The joy one feels from fly fishing all alone on remote water, deep in the woods... Last week I had the pleasure of exploring the Willamette river and it's many tributaries in the coastal mountains outside of Eugene, Oregon. This is a shot of @t_roby's first time wetting a line with a fly rod. Needless to say, the stoke was high! It was fun sharing this most excellent meditation with a long time paddler and river rafter who had never looked at water in the eyes of an angler. The water was swift and the holes difficult to maneuver but smiles and high fives dominated #coastallynomadic #swinginbugs #oregonexplored #onthefly #chillywater #riverrats #thewuwei #tightlines #upperleftusa #pacificnorthwest #fearandloathinginoregon #thatpnwlife #troutsniffer #offseasondiaries #theroadislife #oregonstateofmind #onamissionfromgod #pleasedontfuckupmychi #anotherroadsideattraction #squatchin #funhogging #slowisswiftandswiftisfast #decompression #spreadthestoke #zencowboys #chasingstrange 2mon

oceanmang The more I travel and explore, the more I realize how special the Instagram community is. From deep powder excursions in canada with @gohuckyourself to last weeks corn session on Mt. Rainier with @hefe_steele, the caliber of these individuals I cross paths with through sharing the stoke is of the highest regard. Big props to all of you who #liveyourpassion and share that with others. Your kindness, generosity and positivity is contagious, always attracting other like-minded folk.
Pictured above is a dreamy 5,000' descent from the Muir Icefield on Mt, Rainier in the Cascade range where we encountered perfect corn snow in classic BUCK NAKED form. If you live in the Pacific Northwest, wax those skis and climb up the nearest volcano for ALL TIME spring skiing! #day114 #fearandloathingonrainier #endlesswinter #cascades #rainierlife #whatwouldshanedo #volcanohunting #nudymagazineday #gameofgnar #gnar #bucknaked #whenthegoinggetsweirdtheweirdturnpro #upperleftusa #onamissionfromgod #pacificnorthwest #funhogging #pleasedontfuckupmychi #spreadthestoke #zencowboys #coastallynomadic #offseasondiairies #theroadislife #chasingstrange #ihearthovercrafting #theyonlylivetogetradical

oceanmang The second annual Cabin Weekend at @revelstokemtn is a snowboarder's paradise! This small and intimate gathering of shreds showcases #thestokechair which is littered with hips, lips and bonks every which way you look. A cold and wet spring has blessed us with a deep base and abundant coverage this year and we are getting AFTER it! Highly suggest checking this event out next May :) #day112 #cabinfever14 #endlesswinter #selkirkcorn #notoverit #fearandloathinginbc #bigsaturday #revelstoked #shredwithfriends #itwasbetterwhenyouhatedus #find_away #teamsameteam #theyonlylivetogetradical #pleasedontfuckupmychi #stokefueled #funhogging #spreadthestoke #hugapatroller #liveyourpassion #chasingstrange #180north #offseasondiaries #nomadicstateofmind #mayisforthebirds #revelstokecharm 2mon

oceanmang Everything is flowing -- going somewhere, animals and so-called lifeless rocks as well as water. Thus the snow flows fast or slow in grand beauty-making glaciers and avalanches; the air in majestic floods carrying minerals, plant leaves, seeds, spores, with streams of music and fragrance; water streams carrying rocks... While the stars go streaming through space pulsed on and on forever like blood...in nature's warm heart - John Muir

oceanmang When you set off on a surf and snow safari, you have to expect and allot for down days. Whether it's lack of swell, harsh weather conditions or unstable snowpack, stepping back and changing direction is crucial in keeping physically fit and mentally balanced. Yesterday was just that, where we found much excitement amongst the rocks. #downdays #balance #climbinglife #alwaysascending #sportclimbing #nourishment #granite #theyonlylivetogetradical #becauseitsthere #climbon #zencowboys #chasingstrange #fearandloathinginbc #funhogging #soulfood #adrenalinejunk #spreadthestoke #pleasedontfuckupmychi #offseasondiaries #180north #nomadicstateofmind #theroadislife #puravida #onamissionfromgod #youhaveonelifeliveit #outdooractivities 2mon

oceanmang After two un-real days riding @francosnowshapes at #thelake it was great to get back on the split and get out on a tour. Our objective other then going out for a rip and having a KICK ASS time, was a visually esthetic couloir deep in the Kananaski Mountains near Banff for @gohuckyourself's birthday. It hadn't stop snowing in three days and was starting to warm up. The avalanche danger was slowly rising with our main threat being "deep persistent weaknesses", which scare the shit out of me because they are impossible to predict and often unmanageable/fatal when they slide. As we ascended, pushing through thick foliage (bushwhacking or combat touring if you will), we began to hear and see evidence of avalanche activity nearby. Our group continued to press on noting these red flags and communicating freely. As we got close to the zone we were after, we all sat down for a pow-wow and made a group decision that we had missed our window of safety and decided to ski down in order to "ride another day". These kind of gut calls are essential when shrouded in deep powder, with a large group of ripping new partners in a new zone. In the end we got what we came for: smiles, high fives, new friendships and a safe return :) #day111 #shredwithfriends #knowwherealberta #greybird #outerwearfarts #seasonallyconfused #mayisforthebirds #canadianrockies #albertapow #chasingstrange #notoverit #find_away #nomadicstateofmind #180north #theroadislife #isplitboardbecauseihateyou #offseasondiaries #boysclub #thewuwei #becauseitsthere #thefullnessofthevoid #giver #outforarip #spreadthestoke #pursuitofpowder #outdooractivities #pleasedontfuckupmychi #youhaveonelifeliveit 2mon

oceanmang When all was said and done, over 60cm fell at #thelake over the weekend. The new snow coupled with cold temps and a solid base brought us back to thralls of deep winter where un-tracked pillow lines beckon and the mountains become your canvas.
