Editor’s Note: “Power Trip” is presented by our partners at Visit California.

The Inertia is excited to announce the launch of “Power Trip,” a brand new series that documents good old fashioned road trip adventures. Follow along with our crew as they pack up, hit the highway, and explore.

Our first trip in the four-episode series shines a bright spotlight on the grandeur of California. Starring Imperfects Founder, Mike Lynch, and Un Mar de Colores Executive Director, Mario Ordonez-Calderon, the team begins in San Diego. From sampling iconic surf spots, to grubbing on tacos, and playing in the snow, to literally jumping off a cliff at Torrey Pines Glider Port, the duo takes viewers on an epic journey through San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles, Big Bear Mountain, and Desert Hot Springs. Along the way, they meet up with a bonafide L.A. taco expert, a professional mountain biker, and pro snowboarder – among other colorful characters – to get a flare for the diverse personalities who call Southern California home. Episode one documents kayaking the majestic sea caves in La Jolla, camping and surfing in San Clemente, and mountain biking with Xylena Hoppen in Aliso and Wood Canyons Regional Park.

Buckle up and enjoy. Episode two drops 4/20/2023. Stay tuned.
