Powerful and beautifully captured. Film is about Travis Rice and Ian Walsh sailing and surfing from Tahiti to Hawaii. They took water samples along the way and discovered that 73 percent had microplastics--even in the most remote parts of the Pacific. Ugh. Roam is donating 20 cents per share to Adventure Scientists ongoing work to protect the oceans.
Roam We are proud to release our first Roam Original short film "Lines to Hawaii." Travis Rice and Ian Walsh sail 2,500 nautical miles from Tahiti to Hawaii, discovering untouched surf breaks and exploring some of the most remote islands on Earth.
On their journey they partnered with Adventure Scientists to take water samples testing for microplastics in the ocean. Watch the film to see what they found.
Share this and ROAM will donate 20 cents to Adventure Scientists.

Four days of hammering in the desert with @jimwmorrison - first riding 70+ miles through Joshua Tree then 3 days of over 4000 feet of vertical and hard (for me) rock climbing. So thankful that today is 🦃 day and a rest day and we get to be with good friends and eat lots good food and relish in my insanely sore fingers and toes. I’m thankful for such a good partner. I’m thankful for two beautiful and insane little boys that make me smile every day. I’m thankful for adventure and #wildplaces. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! #hilsonthemove #wallsaremeantforclimbing #bestholiday @thenorthface ... See MoreSee Less
A few years ago, with fellow athlete Kit DesLauriers, we skied over a period of a week some 70 miles from the mountains to the sea directly across the area that is proposed to be opened up for drilling in the #arcticnationalwildliferefuge. In the grand scheme of my life of 44 years, that is just a tiny amount of time, yet the impact was profound. The landscape was still in the intense grip of the cold arctic winter and everything was white and frozen. Yet somehow, that landscape was full of life-absolutely teeming with snowy owls, wolverines, wolves, arctic foxes and polar bears making their way from their dens in the mountains to the frozen ice floes to the north. I have NEVER experienced a place as wild and beautiful as this refuge. Nor have I ever felt, in my bones, the fragility of a landscape such as this. It was hard for me to reconcile the two emotions: all the life and hardness of the landscape combined with the undeniable feeling that the area was so incredibly vulnerable. Thank you Senator Maria Cantwell for your words against drilling in the Arctic Refuge. #protectthearctic Please believe me when I say that this place is one of the greatest treasures of the United States of America and is worth fighting to preserve.

Alaska Wilderness League Thank you Senator Maria Cantwell for standing up for the USFWS Arctic National Wildlife Refuge!
Sierra Nevada Mountains last winter. This was a warm up for Giant Steps the following day- a remote couloir that hadn’t been in condition for years. Needless to say, it was in pretty good shape last winter. Now I’m ready for some more ❄️. 📸 @christianpondella #repeatwinterplease #sierracement #getoutside @thenorthface_snow @julbousa @blackdiamond ... See MoreSee Less
I’ve been fortunate to spend the vast majority of my life adventuring in wild places. As a kid, it was with my family on a boat in the Puget Sound and the national marine parks of British Columbia. As an adult, I’ve travelled the world to the most extreme latitudes and elevations following my passion for mountains and snow, glaciers and remote summits. I want more than anything for my kids to have the same opportunities to have adventure in their own lives. Thanks to @protectourwinters for the last few days of informative and authentic conversations about how to be part of the solution to climate change. It’s amazing to see the outdoor industry wield its influence both through economics and education on the most important and pressing issue of my life and my kids’ future. #dataforgood ...
