Liz Clark

Calling all co-sailing, surf, adventure enthusiasts. I have been following Captain Liz Clark’s voyage on Swell since she set sail back around ten years ago. At that time she was not a Patagonia Ambassador nor a Nat Geo Adventurer but boy has she earned both those titles. We are so excited to have her stop in Santa Monica. Join us if you can. For her 10 ways to make a better world, click the link above. Hope to see you there!PAT_S16_WsActive_LizClark_SantaMonica

Going Native with Alison Teal

Star of the Discovery Channel’s highest rated show, “Naked and Afraid,” Alison Teal shows us just what it takes to go native. This surfer girl from the Big Island of Hawaii prepares for the ultimate test of her survival skills by turning to her wilderness expert parents and cast of talented locals from her home in Hawaii. Alison does more than just surf like a girl, she survives like a girl!  Way cool.
