excelling in many different areas, from all the different ocean water sports
to pioneering new heli-snowboard and ski destinations such as the Caucasus, Ecuador, Uzbekistan or Mongolia, to the inland tracks
or deserts for motocross shoots.

on the Island of Tahiti striving to capture the magic of the Polynesian
islands and people.
