What It's Like to Be a Woman Over 50 Who Surfs

It's a painful admission to drop your sport of choice as career, health, children, age and new interests take hold. Just last week I heard my own wife say with a pinch of regret, "I used to be a runner." This short short film though begs us not to worry about those feelings. Which is so different from the "If I can do it, you can do it" message we so often get — maybe we should just say to hell with it, do what it takes to be happy, not outdoorsy. Here's a wonderful short documentary that focuses on three women over 50 who regularly surf together . . .

A Family Baja Adventure Trip in a VW Westfalia Bus

Taking an adventure trip down Mexico's finest 1000-mile peninsula defined by dirt roads, expansive desert, empty beaches, Suess-like boojum trees, lobster burritos and friendly culture is my kind of trip. You knew that already if you've been here before. My last Baja trip with my tribe of girls was three years ago, and I'm ready for another. It was a year ago that I learned of Adam and Emily Harteau of the blog Our Open Road, a happy couple with a little heatbreaker named Colette; you might know 'em too. Two weeks ago The New York Times . . .

The 3-Year-Old Who Does it All: Climbing, Skating, Bike Riding, and Surfing

Seriously, there is no shortage of Youtube videos of little kids surfing. Yet who could ever get tired of watching them? Check out little Triston Gailey who gets big stoke from staying active with his dad. This short video from Yahoo gives us the quick highlights of the grom rock climbing, surfing, skateboarding, bike riding and more.

The little dude shocked his father, Todd, one day on the surfboard. Triston asked to ride on his belly to give it a shot, so out on the water Todd gave him a little push on a ripple and to his surprise, Triston popped up onto his feet to ride the wave.

Not surprisingly, his dad Todd says that Triston excels quickly and is the "most coordinated three-year-old he's ever seen." But, he also admits, "I’ve had to teach a little bit of fear into him."

Here's a fun few minutes for you this morning.

The Sunday Morning Chillax is here while you're enjoying a cup of coffee in the quiet morning as your kids, hopefully, sleep in. No need to read, this is always a video; something to give you happy thoughts about mountains, fresh air, stoke, fun, or being outside. Enjoy. Relax. And, um, not guaranteed to be weekly — hey, you get what you pay for, but it's a dang good bargain.

The Sunday Morning Chillax: This Old Car by David Wilcox

Iffy territory this music thing. Good chance you and I don't exactly share the same taste. So let me put it like this: singer and song writer David Wilcox handles the stage all by himself with an acoustic guitar and a mountain of stories; in his shows you'll climb that mountain. Along the way, he'll build a little fire and tell the stories. And this one? Told from the point of view of 16-year-old minivan that's been around since the first days of a family's new baby. As a fairly enthusiastic car guy myself, I enjoy this little number . . .
