The Inertia

Travis Rice is one of the most talented snowboarders on the planet. He has been. For a long time. Ian Walsh is one of the world’s best big wave surfers. Each likes the other’s sport, too. That’s why they’re on a mission together.

Right now, they’re sailing, surfing and fishing their way from Tahiti to Hawaii, 2,400 nautical miles. The expedition is called Lines2Hawaii and you can follow the duo’s progress live, here. They left Tahiti a week ago and have covered some 1,400 miles.

They’re searching for, and finding, some small surf zones along the way. Not to mention fly-fishing in the shorebreak, exploring deserted islands and generally having the time of their lives. You can find out more about the expedition, here.


Only the best. We promise.
