It would sound cliche to say that since retiring from pro skateboarding in 2010, Heath Kirchart has embarked on a new adventure. But the stylish goofyfoot has done just that every year for the last few years.
Kirchart has made a point to undertake a fairly serious expedition annually — always doing something he has no business doing. An utter lack of experience hasn’t deterred the Emerica team manager from climbing El Capitan, rafting the Grand Canyon without a guide, riding a bike from Los Angeles to New York, and attempting to row and sail (in a homemade rowboat) along the Pacific side of Baja California. With the exception of the last adventure, which didn’t work out super well, Kirchart and his partners have managed to pull off all of them.
