00:20 As a two-time Freeride World Tour champion and three-time Verbier Xtreme winner, pro freeskier Aurélien Ducroz is one of the most successful freeskiers in the world. So how does he relax during the off-season? Bit of golf? Maybe some tennis? Naaaah. Aurélien heads to the sea to for some transatlantic sailboat racing. 05:17 Teahupoo in Tahiti is a wave that strikes fear in the hearts of even the world's best surfers. EpicTV Surf Editor Dave Mailman fills us in on who to watch in one of the best surf events of the season. 11:06 K2 is called The Savage Mountain for a reason: it's one of the world's most dangerous places. After four attempts including a falsified summit in 2010, Christian Stangl conquers the mountain and comes one steps closer to being the first man to climb the three highest mountains on each continent. 23:22 Rafa Ortiz is only the second person to ever drop a 58-meter waterfall in a kayak. In this excerpt from the full interview, EpicTV Substitute Kayak Editor Dan Milner interviews the Mexico native about traveling the world to find undiscovered waterfalls and how he should really add a few more sit-ups to his workout program.
