Our favorite outdoor web videos from the week that was:

1. Rangers Anonymous

Even though the government, and thus our National Park System, is back open, this video sheds some light on what it was like to be a park ranger during the shutdown. Our National Parks became a poster child, lightning rod, and political tool all in the space of a couple of weeks. Many people were angry with the government, but many were also made at the Park Service for closing the parks, even though they had no choice.

2. Backflip Heard Round the World

At the rowdy Red Bull Rampage competition Cam Zink launched the biggest mountain bike backflip of all time. It’s impressive, but he was 3rd.┬áSee his full run here, and Kyle Strait’s winning run here.

3. It’s About the Fish

Our friends at Southern Culture on the Fly dropped their latest fall issue, and included this philosophy/redfish video that drops knowledge and slabs in the low country.

4. The Return of Roner Vision

Roner goes to South America, skis a little, meets a Yeti, and squeezes in an illegal BASE jump. Winter is coming, get stoked.

5. Short and Sweet on the Hiwassee River

This super-short vid elegantly captures an early morning fly fishing excursion on East Tennessee’s Hiwassee River in the late summer.

BONUS VIDEO!

This one is a little long, but well worth the time. Adidas is pouring money into their snowboarding division and welcome uber-badass Eric Jackson to the team with this outstanding mini-documentary about how Eric, and his bro John but mostly Eric, has become one of the biggest names in the game.

Thanks for watching!
