People Footwear: Death Valley, California

National Parks are a magical place. A place where people from all walks of life join to look at things they may not find at home. To enter into an ecosystem foreign to them and come out educated and awe-inspired. In this #DayOutWithPeople join photographer Caley Vanular as she ventures into a place, not like home, Joshua Tree National Park and Death Valley National Park in California, USA. View some images from her road trip below…

People Footwear: Day Out With People: Beaches Of Bali

The island of Bali is a special place, an Indonesian paradise that feels like a fantasy, nightmare and alternative reality all at once. Soak up the sun on a stretch of fine white sand, or get into the mix in the latest #DayOutWithPeople shot by Caley Vanular.

Watch out for high tide.

The waiting game.

Run on island time here.

Surf everyday and be happy.

They say any dummy can get barreled at Bingin.

The majority of sand on Bali is black. Watch your toes.

A feast for kings.. or beasts who knows.

The perfect companion for reef cuts and scooter rides.

Roxy: Rosy Hodge’s Roxy Fitness Beach Workout

This past march I was hired by Roxy to head down to the Roxy Pro 2015 to take photos and create content with the Roxy athletes. In the following blog I worked with Roxy Athlete & WSL host Rosy Hodge, to concept and shoot photos of Rosy and the new Roxy Fitness gear during a short break in her busy work day at the event.

– –

No time for excuses here, Rosy Hodge makes the most of any down time by getting her #ROXYfitness gear on and hitting the sand. As the master of exercising anywhere, Rosy took us through her easy beach workout, step by step – just for you!

 

My day to day is pretty busy and I’m usually in a rush so when I find 30 ­- 45 minutes to fit a workout in, I throw on some gear, find a wide, open beach to run on for 30 minutes and finish with a 15 minute workout.

Here is a little routine I put together on the Gold Coast of Australia, during the #ROXYpro.

For this workout I picked out the #ROXYfitness Quick Set Top and Go Shortie pant, as they’re the perfect set to take me from land to sea.

 

High Knees – 1 Minute

Set your clock and go for gold. Run on the spot, lifting your legs up as high as you can. This ones great for targeting your butt and quads.

Plank with Butt Spike – 1 Minute

Start in the plank position, keep your core engaged as you lift your butt into the air using your arms and core to keep it controlled. Come back to the plank position and repeat for the full minute.

Alternating Step Lunge – 1 Minute

Don’t sacrifice speed for form in this alternating lunge. Make sure your knees are never too far over your toes on either side of your body. Jump into the lunge position, alternating each side for the minute.

Crunch Alternating Leg Lift – 1 Minute

Feel the burn, keep your core engaged and legs off the ground. Lift alternating legs in a scissor motion for a minute.

Side Plank Leg Lift – 30sec each side

Finishing up the rotation, a side plank with leg raises. Keep your balance using your core and slowly raise and lower your leg. Do each side for 30 seconds.

Repeat each of these exercises 3 times for your 15 minute workout.

Stay tuned for more #ROXYfitness updates and exclusives by following us on InstagramTwitter and Facebook.

Destination Canada: A Local’s Guide To Whistler

 

A Local’s Guide To Riding Whistler

The many sides of Whistler Photos: Caley Vanular

Whistler BC, is an amazing place to grow up. The beautiful outdoors, inspiring people and unmatched terrain is an experience only those who visit can truly understand. Especially in the past few years. With the arrival of new restaurants, facilities, retail stores, terrain access, express lifts and more, Whistler has grown from a small ski town to a globally renowned ski resort, featuring a community filled with amazing opportunities for action, adventure, cuisine, and culture.

Follow along as I give you some locals tips to skiing and snowboarding in one of the best places on earth, for the easy riders, powder hounds, park rats and backcountry enthusiasts in your group…

For The Easy Riders:

Whistler Blackcomb is a huge resort, with over 8,171 acres of skiable terrain. It is smart to take a look at the trail map to get an idea of where you want to ski before you hit the slopes. My favorite morning runs are on the green Family Runs. Featuring beautiful scenery and perfect corduroy, it is a nice way to ease into the morning.

For The Park Rats: If you or someone in your family is looking to ride park, Whistler Blackcomb has some of the best terrain parks in the world. Ranging from green to extreme, the resort has something for everyone. Whistler’s park is traditionally the novice level park, with fun jibs and welcoming jumps. Blackcomb terrain park is built on a steeper run and hosts a blue, grey and black park. The black park is where you will see professional athletes and Olympians training, it has the biggest jumps and requires a special pass and helmet to ride.

For The Powder Hounds:

Looking for powder on Whistler Blackcomb? You will need to know where to go. If you are on Whistler and see Peak Chair switch from ‘closed’ to ‘stand-by’, rip on over and jump in line. When it opens, you will experience amazing snow, endless terrain, and big open bowls. Ride back down to the lift and enjoy a show as skiers and snowboarders drop off cliffs viewable from the lift line. You can lap Peak Chair to Red Chair, all day and explore different routes and traverses leading you to some of the best terrain the resort has to offer.

If it is too windy to open Peak Chair on Whistler, take the Peak-To-Peak gondola over to Blackcomb. Blackcomb mountain is steeper and features the new Crystal Ridge Express chair which gives you access to playful terrain and powder-filled glades.

For The Backcountry Enthusiasts:

Not only does Whistler play host to the world-renowned ski resort, Whistler Blackcomb, it also has numerous backcountry access points within a thirty-minute drive. From epic heli skiing, snowmobiling to split boarding, it is worth checking out the operations in the area and getting yourself a guided tour of the surrounding mountains. Only if you want bottomless powder and no lift lines that is…

Well Travelled: Hawaii

HSC_Well_Travelled_banner

Based in Squamish, British Columbia, Canada, professional wedding and lifestyle photographer Rebecca Bundschuh shares her words and photos from an inspirational trip to beautiful Hawaii…

Travelling with a family is a different beast. The responsibility of caring for others while navigating new surroundings can present challenges. Those who persevere are often rewarded, like I was while exploring the magical land of Hawaii with my children. I love the comfort and excitement of experiencing new places with them and capturing those moments with my camera.

Well Travelled: Highway 395 California

HSC_Well_Travelled_banner

Known for her popular Tumblr account Cheynesaw , Cheyne Brooking is a talented illustrator and photographer from the Eastern Sierra’s of California. Recently Cheyne took a trip to California’s Highway 395, capturing the sights along the way for Well Travelled.Highway 395 is the gateway to some of the most interesting places in California. In the middle of nowhere, beyond the expansive desert, dilapidated homes and “No Trespassing” signs stand deserted mining towns, abandoned airplane hangars, train graveyards, and world famous landmarks. For Cheyne, it’s also the road home – the long stretch between Southern California and the Eastern Sierra’s. Sometimes you just need to get in the car and go, follow along as Cheyne does just that…

Well Travelled: Sayulita, Mexico

Here is a blog I worked on with Herschel SupplyAlana Paterson and Mila Franovic.

HSC_Well_Travelled_banner

Based on the West Coast, Alana Paterson is a Canadian photographer known for her notable work with lifestyle publications and brands worldwide. Take a look through some of her recent images and words below…

I took this trip with my good bud and favourite stylist Mila Franovic. It was meant to be a relaxing holiday to celebrate the end of my seasonal work year on my family farm… and Mila wanted to tan. But of course we ended up making it a working holiday. A stylist and a photographer travelling together could never just chill. So we shot an editorial down there for this french surf magazine, Desillusion and also this photo-set for you all.

Well Travelled: Los Angeles, California

Check out the latest Well Travelled I worked on with Herschel Supply and Rachael Wright

HSC_Well_Travelled_banner

With winter creeping in, photographer Rachael Wright escaped to the West Coast to avoid grey skies and falling temperatures. Experience her trip to California with the words and images captured below.

I’m thinking about moving to LA at some point, so this trip was kind of a reconnaissance mission to see if my New York sensibilities could handle laidback LA living. I’m in love with the light in California – they don’t call it the Golden State for nothing – so it wasn’t too hard to win me over.

Los Feliz and Silverlake are great, and Echo Park delivered some very strong tacos (Guisados – big thumbs up) but my heart belongs to the Westside, specifically Venice, with its palm trees, epic sunsets and the Pacific Coast Highway to Malibu…
