Himalayan Halfway House

Featuring Raph Bruhwiler, Nate Zoller & Chris McPherson
Himalayas, Nepal
20/11/2015

Roark is in Nepal, in search of spiritual ruin.

He has been guided from Kathmandu to a halfway house run by a wayward Sadhu, high in the Himalayas. He searches for a magical down-railer, shaped by a master of the shortboard revolution and lost on the hippy trail over 40 years ago.

The halfway house is a base camp for drifters, degenerates, lost trekkers and criminals who seek whiskey, women and motorcycles. 

Will enlightenment be fast enough to chase him down?

The collection suits the climate of the temperate Kathmandu valley and the rugged cold of the Himalayas. Mysticism permeates the goods and Nepalese textile prints adorn the garments. Karma guides the way.

Travel Guides

  1. Darwin and Tiwi Islands

    We explore the Northern Territory outback, the local Darwin food, bar and music scene and the nearby Tiwi Islands for a cultural hit and some infamous Barra fishing with the local indigenous guides.

  2. The Whitsundays travel guide

    "I''ve travelled around the world and the most beautiful place i have ever seen is in our backyard - the Whitsundays” - Emily Hutchinson @emelinaah
    We planned a fun 8-day Whitsunday holiday filled with reef diving, island hopping, water activities and plenty of time to relax. The trip kicked off with three days in Airlie Beach which was enough time to chat to the locals and get the inside story on the best things to do and explore in the Whitsundays. Every conversation pointed to two things: a one-day Cruise Whitsundays dive trip to the outer Great Barrier Reef and a sea plane flight over Heart Reef and Whitehaven Beach with Air Whitsunday. Then we spent four leisurely days on a #gobareboating catamaran exploring the 74 Whitsunday Islands. Thanks to our very own skipper (a local who knew just the right places), we stumbled across our own secret beaches, found hidden gems and watched the tropical Whitsunday world go by. Our trip ended with an overnight stay on glorious Hamilton Island - and a chance to mix water sports and hiking activities with chill outs by the resort pool and enjoy quality restaurant and cocktail time.
