Ethereal Canadian lakes? Check. Stunning Mexican scenery? Check. An awesome outdoors girl showing off her talent? Massive check. Videomaker François Guinaudeau presents ‘A kiteracer from the North’, following Québécoise Catherine Dufour‘s training process around the world.
Huge outdoorsy love for Sigur Ros’s Hoppipolla video. Everyone should be like this when they get older.
Snowboarder Simon Andrews waxes lyrical over his favourite bit of kit, the GoPro Hero camera.
Pure unadulterated fresh air based bliss in one little music video: Keep your head up, by Ben Howard. Possibly the best waterslide in the world. I suggest watching it when you feel a little bit sad.

Lovely.

An epic tale of drama, hope, love and wilderness.
