Chocolate Avocado Pudding

Chocolate Avocado Pudding

Last month, I brought you a simple massaged kale salad. This month, I'm bringing you a dessert. Life is about finding balance, especially in the food we eat. If all we did was eat kale salad all day, every day, we'd be missing out on one of the most coveted food groups: dessert. And, when it comes to eating dessert, I do believe that there’s room for something sweet each day. However, there are a few things that I like to keep in mind. 

North of Known -- Recap

This past Wednesday we were able to join Gavin McClurg in his first screening of 'North of Known' here in Ketchum. Gavin's journey may seem a bit crazy, but according to Gavin "to understand this story you have to understand that i'm not crazy". 

Below is a fantastic read from a feature on Gavin by Patagonia.

To understand this story you have to understand that I’m not crazy. Sure I’ve had some close calls, but that doesn’t mean I’ve got a death wish. There was that time in Mexico when I got stuffed in a waterfall kayaking a first descent and spent over five minutes underwater. And there was the time we got knocked down and nearly run over by an ocean freighter sailing in hurricane force winds and 35-foot seas off Cape Mendocino, California. Ah, and there was that time I landed my paraglider in a river above a heinous waterfall in the Dominican Republic, that was a close call for sure. And I do have to admit to spending a particularly spooky 10 hours swimming in a Pacific atoll filled with sharks after a night-dive went really wrong. And I really got close that time my kite exploded in a howling gale kitesurfing in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland forcing me to dump my gear and swim for several hours in 10°C water against the wind to make landfall. But I promise I didn’t do any of these things for the adrenaline rush. And I didn’t do them because I’m careless, or because I didn’t understand the risks. By definition, expedition means going into the unknown.

A Note From Our Founder -- Tackling Cairn

A Note From Our Founder -- Tackling Cairn

A note from our founder, Spencer Brendel. Tackling the Cairn order was our biggest order to date and would surely push us to the next level. Day after day we would produce as many bags as possible as we raced the deadline fast approaching. Our biggest day? 4,000 bags with a 4 person team... Ya, thats Nuts!! 

PHGB Featured Athlete: Cody Barnhill and his work with Idaho BaseCamp

Big ideas, big terrain and slightly smaller housing: a profile of free-skier and PHGB athlete Cody Barnhill, and his involvement with our partner non-profit Idaho Basecamp.

At Playhard Giveback, our goal is to highlight the world-bettering work that our athletes do regularly-work that is often overshadowed by videos focused solely on their sports achievements. through content such as this, we aim to change the message of sports media, one athlete, and one non-profit at a time.
