Flying Unicorns At The NRF Big Air Ramp Comp

Flying Unicorns at the NRF Big Air Ramp comp – The first day of the Nile River Festival competition was hilarious.

The Problem With Bomb Proof Rolls

The Altai mountains are located in South Siberia. It is the best region in Russia for whitewater kayaking. You’ve probably seen some epic videos about this place. From classic “Glorious way to die” to modern “Book of legends” by Adidas Sickline team; and probably already heard about such iconic brands of Altai as Bashkaus river, Mazhoy Gorge, King of Asia race.
