Video of Man Snowboarding with Dog Will Make You Miss Your Mutt

We can’t stop watch­ing this video of a guy snow­board­ing with a husky.

If you’re like us, you’re see­ing this at work. It’s the end of another long week and you’d rather be hang­ing with your dog—or rid­ing at the moun­tain. Well, here’s a fun clip of some lucky SOB doing both in the Aus­trian Alps.  Accord­ing to a dis­claimer at the end of the video, Shila is a pro­fes­sional pulling dog and you shouldn’t try this at home. But judg­ing by how pro­fi­ciently some of The Clymb’s office dogs drag us around the office on our rolling chairs dur­ing beer-fueled

Meg and Chris were kayak­ing across open water to a national bar­rier island park when a sud­den storm brought 20-knot winds and seas of 3 to 4 feet, con­di­tions that could quickly swamp

180 South Tents – A Clymb Exclusive

Two Clymb employ­ees put 180 South tents to the test at the Deschutes River.

I pitched the Juniper 2 in a juniper grove entirely by acci­dent. Myself, and a buyer at The Clymb, Brett Cas­sidy, were camp­ing at the Deschutes River and we had the good for­tune to give these new 180 South tents that are exclu­sive to The Clymb a trial run. The world-famous salmonfly hatch was on, and a cur­sory glance at the river­bank grass revealed these thumb-sized bugs in abun­dance. I was anx­ious to wet my line, so I jumped out of

New Balance: Smokin’ Fast Track Shoes

Time to beat the clock.

You run the roads, map your routes, and now you want to take the strength you’ve built and apply it to the track — then here’s the shoe for you.

“I imag­ine that those extra mm I just added to my hands will allow me to have a slightly longer pull in the water and it makes me feel fierce.”

Iron­man World Cham­pion qual­i­fier and Timex spon­sored ath­lete, Shan­non Coates knows a thing or two about high-performance suf­fer­ing and endurance.

THE CLYMB: What is the sin­gle most impor­tant ele­ment to you per­form­ing your best on race day?SHANNON COATES: Most impor­tant is con­sis­tent prepa­ra­tion.

Duke’s Day Centennial: 100 Years of Australian Surfing

How Duke Kahanamoku helped light the fire of surf stoke in the land down under.

One hun­dred years ago, Duke Kahanamoku was the Michael Phelps of the early 20th Cen­tury. At the 1912 Olympics in Stock­holm, Swe­den, Duke shook up the world—a big, smil­ing, hand­some brown man from an island in the mid­dle of nowhere who trav­eled all the way to Europe to beat the best of the world in the 100 meter freestyle where he won a Gold medal, and a sil­ver in the 4 x 200 meter freestyle relay. By 1914, Duke was world famous
