We’re creating a space in the outdoors that’s more approachable, joyful, and inclusive of everyone. Let's build it together.
We’re creating a better, modern alternative to the industry's legacy services and publications. One that celebrates a more equitable and inclusive outdoor narrative, and provides utility, inspiration, and a sense of belonging for everyone.
At a deeper level, we’re building a movement that fosters a healthier and more approachable connection with the outdoors. One that focuses on welcoming the outdoor experiences and perspectives of everyone, and especially those whose stories have always been kept at the margins of the dominant outdoor narrative.
We’re on a mission to get #EveryoneOutside.
As a community-driven media platform, we leverage the power of our users’ diverse local knowledge to unlock the best adventures, trips, basecamps, and stories from across the globe. We're a growing community of over 15 million passionate locals, travel experts, conservationists, athletes, gear junkies, advocates, writers, and photographers who contribute their experiences, tips, perspectives, and recommendations - all to help inspire others and to contribute to our shared mission.
As a POC-owned and operated business, we have a strong appreciation for the importance of building a community that reflects our society’s beautiful diversity. We believe that differences (of all kinds) make us stronger, more resilient, and generally more interesting. We are proud signatories of the Outdoor CEO Diversity Pledge and we are committed to fostering an inclusive community that supports, elevates, and amplifies traditionally marginalized groups.
Hi. If you don't know us yet, we're two half-Asian kids from southern California. We grew up riding bikes, surfing, skating, fishing, car camping, and playing organized sports. We loved being outside, and yet didn’t consider ourselves “outdoorsy”. And we didn’t feel particularly welcome in more traditional outdoor spaces. That concept of what it means to be “outdoorsy”, and everything jammed into it, just never connected with us. It still doesn’t.
We need to work harder to change that.
