Not all of us enter motherhood as women. Maybe you became a mom during your teen or college years. Maybe your career was unestablished, you had a boyfriend, your life still had a big question mark in front of it with endless possibilities ahead of you. Then within an instant that positive pregnancy test changed your world. While it seemed like everyone around you was moving forward, you found yourself struggling to survive.

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 »

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 »

Chances are, if you are an adventure mama, you were a pretty rad adventure woman before you added “mama” to your list of titles.

Being Mama, Inspiration, To The Mama Who... IMG_4060

To the mama who got a shitty diagnosis: Know that the diagnosis is the worst week. The tests. The waiting.

That first week when the life you had planned, the life you had carefully dreamed up, got torn away… Read more »

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. And it’s weird, you don’t realize how dignifying it is for the world to expect great things from you… until they don’t anymore.

Rad, Things Are Happening stephsteen

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.
