The Reef Beneath- by Patagonia

Sometimes it’s the things we don’t see that matter most. Connected by a shared passion for the ocean and a desire to protect it, Belinda Baggs, Kimi Werner and Wayne Lynch embarked on a sailing journey on Discovery along Australia’s Great Barrier Reef in 2017. The largest living structure on earth, the reef provides habitats for thousands of species. The reef, however, is under threat. Currently almost half of its coral has been lost or damaged, most of this in some way attributable to human impact, the biggest single factor being climate change. The three sailors explored the reef and experienced personally how something as vast and wonderful as the Great Barrier Reef can at the same time be entirely vulnerable, realizing as they sailed and swam that time is fast running out to save it.

Introducing the Cabrinha Quest

The Cabrinha Quest- a seafaring expedition to seek out the world’s most remote and dynamic kitesurfing and surfing locations. A quest to experience native cultures in their natural state. To consciously explore the Oceans of the world with passion, integrity, and sensitivity to the cultures and ecosystems we inhabit. To build awareness, global concern, and inspire solutions to the environmental crisis. We are the world’s foremost experts in remote ocean-going travel. And now we’re operating with a greatly reduced impact. If you’ve been dreaming of sailing, kitesurfing, and surfing the world and have been waiting for the right opportunity this is IT!

The Island of Everything

When you’re exploring far-off places, it helps to be ready for just about everything.

Featuring Kohl Christensen, Hank Gaskell, Jason Slezak, Reo Stevens and more.
