Bruno Hansen, the paraplegic surfer, was ranked as one of the 25 most adventurous men, but he is simply peerless. This man’s tenacity to overcome obstacles is unfathomable.”—JOHN BUCH, HERMOSA BEACH, CA POLITICS OF THE GAME Hats off to Kevin Cook and his honest piece delving into Donald Trump’s ego-driven stake in the golf world [“Game On, Mr. President”]. Without a doubt, Trump’s courses are good, provide jobs, and have gotten the golf world buzzing, and he deserves credit for that. But like his politics — the bullying, the warring, the controversies, the lies, the insults, the juvenile back– stabbing, the narcissistic nonsense — all just leave a bad taste in my mouth. At best, it’s disturbing. At worst, it shows a reckless and ignorant disregard for what the game stands for:…

testing the waters in postwar colombia

OLOMBIA’S REMOTE INTERIOR has one of the highest concentrations of biodiversity on the planet. And because of a 52-year civil war, it’s also one of the least explored areas in the world. Which is why, at the end of March, just five months after the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) reached a historic peace accord with the Colombian government, five elite kayakers, including Americans Ben Stookesberry and Chris Korbulic, set out on a monthlong expedition to explore a 700-mile section of the Río Apaporis. “For the longest time, you couldn’t get close to it,” says Stookesberry. “With the signing of the peace deal, we finally had a way in.” The team entered the Apaporis near the abandoned FARC stronghold of La Tunia, and after five days of flat-water paddling, they…

ueli steck’s final climb

ON APRIL 30, climbing lost one of its greats, Ueli Steck, in a fall on Nuptse, in the Khumbu Himalayas of Nepal. Ueli was alone, acclimating on the mountain at night, when one of the millions of crampon placements he made over his lifetime gave way, and he fell 3,000 feet to his death. We will never know the exact circumstances, but too often it is the simple mistake that catches us unaware. Ueli had his sights set on a route up Everest’s notorious West Ridge, one that was first climbed in 1963 but has not been repeated since, despite numerous attempts. (I tried it with a team in 2012 but called off the climb due to poor snow conditions high on the mountain.) After topping out on Everest, Ueli had…

FOOTWEARI’m a boot freak. I wear them all the time. I have a pair of custom black Chelsea boots from the Love Jules Leather Shoe Co. in Vancouver. They engraved my cats’ faces on the heels. It really bothers me that everything is now made to not get too attached to. I like things that are well made, and I love a good boot that lasts a long time and becomes a part of you. READSI just finished Dreamland: The True Tale of America’s Opioid Epidemic by Sam Quinones. He brings together the economics of the painkiller epidemic and how it led to the black-tar heroin epidemic and how drug dealers were able to spread dope to all these cities that never had it before. I couldn’t put it down. It’s…

a cockpit view of le mans

No offense to NASCAR’s Daytona 500, but the most exciting weekend in motorsports is the 24 Hours of Le Mans, when drivers, pit crews, and sports cars are tested in an overnight race on a 13.6-kilometer course through the French countryside. Drivers fight darkness and fatigue in prototype cars that are essentially rolling science experiments. (This year’s race runs from June 17 to 18; you can watch it live on Fox Sports or radiolemans.com.) To get a panoramic sense of what the race demands, stream Le Mans: Racing Is Everything, an Amazon Original Series viewable on Prime. (All six half-hour episodes go live on June 9.) Captured before, during, and after the 2015 race, the doc peers inside the cockpits of drivers like Nico Prost and Mark Webber, and the…
