Head to toe in 7mm rubber. The only opening that is exposed to the water is the small porthole that fits your eyes, nose and mouth. At the end of a long surf in 15F and by the time you paddle back to the boat you can expect your face to be a shade of near purple as the blood rushes to keep you warm. It is definitely not the most attractive look but it sure can put a smile on your face ๐Ÿ™‚ . @annaehrgott @nolecossart

This is my second summer spent in that truck, and I have to say I still have to find a road that will give it a hard time. Absolute freedom while traveling around Europe. Already 40,000km traveled, 16 countries visited, and not a single break down nor flat tire (knock on wood). Thanks to the guys at @toyota.europe for trusting me as their 4×4 ambassador, and for allowing me to access to some pretty remote and less taken roads! And thank you guys for your insane feedback and amazing response to my new project @lolosjohan. Iโ€™m excited to see so many of you were waiting for something fresh and unique on Instagram. I hope Iโ€™ll fulfill your expectations ๐Ÿ™‚

With everything going on with the government shutdown, itโ€™s been a huge reminder of how special these places are and how important it is to continually protect them. This shot is from a recent solo trip through the park as the last light hit El Capitan. I hope the Valley will continually be a place for us to slow down and appreciate how grand and magnificent earth really is. Huge thanks to @smartwool for making this special trip to Yosemite possible. #gofarfeelgood #yosemite #nationalpark
