    Following his sensational title defense over Luis Palomino at World Series Of Fighting (WSOF) 19 this past Saturday night (March 28, 2015), undefeated lightweight champ Justin Gaethje told Sherdog he is the best lightweight in the world, and has no urgency to fight elsewhere because he is "getting paid well and loves it." The 14-0 Arizona native also discussed how tough Palomino was last night, when he wants to return to the cage next, and a whole lot more.

It forms part of a fundamental quest to discover what it means to be human, to understand what really matters and where we fit in the universe. In short I believe kitesurfing is a quest for much more than just riding around on the water under a piece of colorful canvas, impressing passers by on the beach. Bit too hippy for you?

Based on a true story of a 1100 miles hike (apprx. 1770 kilometers) at the Pacific Crest Trail, (where the Pacific Crest Trail is actually 2.650 miles long) that a woman did by traveling solo to simply find herself!

    Daniel Britton is a musician and designer. When he contacted us about one of his recent projects, I thought it was more than rad and wanted to feature it on ADAPT. Using a relatively simple process, that at first glance looks more like a weird cake bake recipe, Britton created an insightful image to use as the cover for Dax J’s Sephora Mix record. Check out the process in photos below: Three pints of milk a gardening tray, sunflower yellow clothes dye and a hair dryer… Then mix… Lighting adds another important element and creates depth in the final image… Add some rad…

    Check out this great vid on surf photographer Clark Little, from The Inertia. Getting battered by shorebreak and slammed into the sand day after day is a rough go; Clark Little wouldn’t have it any other way. In fact, for the North Shore local, it’s all in a good day’s work. But the Waimea addict didn’t grow up snapping shots with his father’s camera like so many photographers do. He instead set out to capture his longtime stomping grounds when his wife came home with a framed photograph of Waimea shorebreak, an image he figured he would be able to easily…
