Infinite Amateur: Surfer Style

June 23, 2017  |  By: Audrey Hills

Surfing is Hard Surfing is hard.  Essentially, all committed surfers spend their entire lives dealing with freezing feet, overhyped swells, dawn patrols, damp wetsuits, wipeouts and hold downs and never ever surf like Kelly Slater or Bethany Hamilton.  They don’t even get close.  Yet, as a surfer, you spend every free moment you get bobbing up… Read more »

My Son with Special Needs: Bonding Through Adventure

June 6, 2017  |  By: Ashley Baggerly

The moment I hit the dirt I’m smiling. It’s exhilarating to have my feet on the trail that I have desperately wanted to hike since I was 12. The trail markers of the Pacific Crest Trail bring back floods of memories and dreams of the days of care-free, spontaneous adventure. My son shakes his hands… Read more »

Adventure-Couple Turned Adventure-Parents

June 3, 2017  |  By: Sarah Gorka

Chances are, if you are an adventure mama, you were a pretty rad adventure woman before you added “mama” to your list of titles. If you were a lucky woman like me, you might have also shared this pre baby adventure-hard lifestyle with an equally zealous and bold partner. My husband and I bonded over… Read more »

To the Mama Who Got a Shitty Diagnosis

May 28, 2017  |  By: Tess L

To the mama who got a shitty diagnosis: Know that the diagnosis is the worst week. The tests. The waiting. Those words when you  find out it’s multiple sclerosis, or parkinsons, or, in my case, cancer. That first week when the life you had planned, the life you had carefully dreamed up, got torn away… Read more »

Adventure Like a Mother…

May 25, 2017  |  By: Justine Nobbe

We’ve noticed something, and perhaps you’ve noticed it too… Upon becoming a mother, people’s expectations and perceptions of your ability to go hard athletically in the mountains seems to shift. People don’t expect you to crush, send, or shred the gnar; they don’t expect you to show-up, let alone perform.

AMI Founder Chats: Shit’s Gettin’ Real

May 8, 2017  |  By: Adventure Mamas

These past 18 months have been a wild ride…wild AF. What started off as a way for two new mamas to connect with like-minded women, has turned into something so much bigger. And that has very little to do with us and everything to do with YOU. When we decided to build up a badass mama crew, we had no idea it was going to spread so fast.
