BOY MEETS GIRL…

We both previously got into the backcountry sport of “splitboarding”, which lead to us to knowing about a particular skills camp based out of Revelstoke, BC in Canada called CAPOW. We happened to sign up for the same camp back in late January of 2014. From then on we clicked and found a common ground to leave our industry jobs, head to the mountains and travel around the world doing what we love outdoors.

WHERE TO?

So far we’ve travelled to: Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, and England. At the moment, you can currently find us travelling around by caravan in NEW ZEALAND!
