River surfing is a thing. Really. I wasn’t much of an ocean surfer because of the obvious- hard to paddle out, sharks, reefs, and I don’t live near the sea. But that hasn’t stopped river runners like Gannet Horn from finding his wave.
River Surfer – an unassuming, simple, and community-oriented short doc produced by and promoted through ROAM- captures the heart of one man’s thrill of surfing whitewater. He’s not the only one, of course, as kayakers and standup paddlers have found new ways to play in the river. But you can get a taste of the “why” from watching this beautiful little short.

Two-time Olympic Gold Medalist Ted Ligety and X-Games Champ Antti Autti took to Snowbird last spring to shred some early morning lines. This short film follows the two as they cat and mouse through Mineral Basin and Gad Valley with a symphony of GS turns.
The concept for Art of Arc stems from something valued since Ted first launched SHRED in 2006; the love for the mountains. Of course, one of the best ways to celebrate your relationship with the slope is turning. Just watch these two lay down some sexy strokes.

Now that winter is over, we turn to surfing and the ocean. ROAM Original, Lines to Hawaii, will screen at the 2018 Mountainfilm in Telluride, Colorado, over Memorial Day weekend. It’s the story of ROAM Founding Contributors Travis Rice (@travisrice) and Ian Walsh (ian.walsh) sailing and surfing from Tahiti to Hawaii via the Line Islands.
But it’s not just fun and games. They took water samples every 100 miles, and 73 percent contained microplastics—a grim reminder of our impact on the planet. Watch the short film:
