A couple of dudes go shredding.

Instead of thermals, pants and jackets they don their rubber surfing suits, helmets and goggles and they're off.

Full of surfing and sea jargon, and instead of riding the waves they ride the half pipe.

Particularly love the diver, that appears at 4:07 minutes into the trailer, wearing a wetsuit and flippers.

Fresh Rubber stars Tim Eddy & Taylor Carlton.

Credits include thanks to Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows

This is a tale of suffering, will power, two men named Mike plus a guy called Steven on a massive outdoor adventure. 

The Crown Traverse is a 600 mile route through the high mountains between Missoula, Montana and Banff, Alberta. 

The trio try to run the equivalent of a marathon every day though progress is impeded when they battle through thickets, rock hop over riverbeds, a spot of climbing thrown in for good measure, slide dangerously down screes and run along ridge lines, plus some interesting encounters with local wildlife.

Follow ultra-runners Mike Foote and Mike Wolfe (Steve had to drop out due to injury) through sketchy solos, whiteouts, and utter exhaustion.

The 3 week trail has nothing to do with skiing but we appreciate the majesty of the mountains and the trio's spirit of adventure.

On Day 18, however, they do encounter snow and map reading becomes tricky.

We would love to take on this challenge too though we would prefer to walk the 600miles, not run.

Well actually to be precise it was 599.7 miles, but who was counting? It appears they were.

Love it! The trio made up the mileage by jogging up and down Banff Avenue!

Be Water is a short film showing ski tricks that take a lot of guts and determination to achieve, with a few fails on the way.

Produced by Stept Studios X Poor Boyz Productions., the team also credit Red Bull, Smith, GoPro, and Under Armour for helping me make this happen.

We look forward to seeing the premier on October 18th via the Bobby Brown Vimeo page.

Love the trailer guys.

Here's an unusual ski destination. Guess where it is?

We didn't and we were surprised.

This part of Europe has huge mountains, plenty of snow and a season that runs from December through to May.

It has a serious winter and the potential for world class for skiing and snowboarding. 

All the footage included the two videos below was filmed in Greece.

A staggering 30,000 people visit the refuge on Mount Olympus (Greece) every summer but up till a few years ago it was closed in the winter.

Nowadays though around 500 people visit the refuge in the winter.

It is visited mainly by ski tourers and split boarders looking for adventure.

The refuge sits at 8,600ft, at the foot of the throne of Zeus.

There are no gondolas, trains, lifts or helicopters to get you up there, it's all on foot.

Once at the top you feel as though you've stepped back a few thousand years in time.

Both the scenery and skiing look stunning.

Watch out for the new film to be released this autumn.
