Norway Longboarding

So yeah, everything about this Ishtar X Tussilago video makes you feel completely lazy and super uncool—everything except the hipster Amish kid. I think I got the jump on him at least.

Lake House Moodboard

These Nike kicks and this Topo Designs shirt randomly popped up right next to each other in my feeds the other day and I couldn't resist the chance to my moodboarding on.

Benji Wagner vs. TEDxPortland

The man behind Poler Outdoor Stuff—one of my fave brands at the moment—recently dropped a potent and poignant TEDxPortland Talk. Give this one a serious listen! He does a fantastic job of breaking down how technology can either paralyze us in our tracks or become a vehicle to incite us into outdoor action. 

I love, love, love it. And let's face it, that beard is rawesome.

Bat-Tac Moodboard

So unless you've been living in a cave for the last couple of weeks, you already know that new trailers for both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad recently dropped. I thought the Suicide Squad trailer was pretty perfect (although I think Jared Leto would be a better Riddler). And I have tons of issues with the Batman v Superman trailer, but I was excited by the corresponding picture of him in a duster with these rad goggles. That bat-image inspired this bat-tactical gear moodboard.

Strato Style

I stumbled onto a slew of images from this Japanese retailer called Strato. I seriously can't get enough of their aesthetic. I love the simplicity of this classic urban-meets-outdoor vibe. It's a look that's defined by a based of real staples enhanced by one or two pieces of uniqueness that pushes the boundaries just a little. Love it.

And some lovely looks for the ladies too...

Mad Max: Center Framed

Well, apparently Wes Anderson and Stanley Kubrick aren't the only directors obsessed with centering their cinematic compositions. I love how George Miller's technique allows you to track with the high-paced action in a way that feels right. Compare this scene to the mess of an opening sequence in Age of Ultron, and there's just no doubt what's more enjoyable to watch.
