"View From A Blue Moon" Looks Incredible
Alana Blanchard was raised on the island of Kauai. Even though she spent years there, even she is amazed at all the hidden treasures the island has to offer. Watch as Alana reflects back to episode 3 of season 1 , when her and her besties Leila Hurst and Camille Brady paid the Na Pali Coast a visit and swam with the dolphins.
Here's an adventure lesson for all of you who have yet to learn it: The most dangerous moments often arise out of the most unassuming circumstances. Just ask these hikers, who took to the hills above Maui for a quick dip in Commando waterfall only to be greeted by an entirely unexpected flash flood that blocked their path back down the mountain and required rescue by helicopter. Needless to say, the footage captured on their drone is pretty terrifying but well worth a watch for anyone lacking a healthy respect for the raw power of nature.
While most people grew up with shopping malls and movie theaters, pro surfer Alana Blanchard’s younger years were spent socializing a different kind of way. In this episode of Alana Surfer Girl Reflections, Alana talks about hippy vibes, rock running and exploring caves.
We all know Jason Park has some magic in those feet, but a biggerflip double flip and a frontside bigspin hardflip...down stairs? It probably goes without saying, but if this dude isn't in Battle at the Berrics 9, we riot.
