Sangye Namdrol • A Quest for Enlightenment • Episode 3.23


Sangye Namdrol has led two different lives - the first was as a kids who grew up in Connectecut, who developed a reputation for being fearless in any kind of bike or snowboarding situation.


Then he picked up Buddhism and you might say the rest is history, starting out at Boulder, Colorado’s Naropa University, after a few semesters, he made his way to Nepal and never looked back. 


We talk about the journey - in snowboarding and in pursuit of spiritual fulfillment. Sangye has a different perspective on life snowboarding and the grand scheme of things - something we find pretty refreshing here. 


Enjoy the episode!


This week’s interview is brought to you by Cardiff Snowcraft,  Never Summer Industries Tow Pro Lifts and United Shapes. We ask that you support the brands that support disruptive snowboard media. Find out more at their websites.

10 Feet Further with Aaron Lebowitz | Owner, Shaper of Elevated Surfcraft and Rad Dude
Episode 41 Dark Starts backcountry splitboarding podcast presents the man with the ‘stache - Aaron Lebowitz, owner of Elevated SurfCraft. * A surfer in the making, transplanted to Montana before hitting his prime. * Riding in Ja-pow with Alex, sold everything he had to bring back a powder board to the States with him. * Started making local powder boards for himself, and people wanted them. He really had no choice but to evolve his hobby into a Microboardery™. What a rad human! We were 100% captivated by Aaron as he took us through the awe of seeing his first snow, to learning how to make boards, turning it into a business and evolving the business model to focus on what he loves most - creating rad boards and riding them! We learned so much about gear that had a hard time speed-googling stuff. You might want to be online and have a credit card ready before you start listening to this episode.

Eating Healthy On The Boat
When I am fishing and shooting Saltwater Experience, one of the hardest things to do is eat consistently healthy. When you’re headed out on the water, it’s way too easy to just grab an unhealthy snack or something that you know will fill you up, but isn’t the best for you. In this episode I break down some tricks that I have found to help me stay consistent with my diet, even out on the water. I go over some key foods that I bring on the boat that are available in most grocery stores without being unhealthy. We also go over things to avoid. I hope that this helps you to make the most of your day on the water, without ruining your diet. By the way…How are your 2021 diet resolutions coming along?  Text “Accountability” to (305) 930-7346 to join our community of people holding each other accountable to our goals in 2021.

Ep. 62 - Kait boyle, FKT on the kokopelli
On the morning of Christmas Eve 2018 Kait Boyle was at the height of her ultra endurance racing career, having won the 24 hour World Championship in 2018 and set a new record on the AZT 300. Her life would take an unexpected turn later that day when she was involved in a horrific vehicular accident that left her with a long list of injuries and a long path to recovery. Like many of you, I watch her social media feed for months as she dedicated herself to rehabilitation and ultimately back to fitness. * * * Almost a 2 years, and a pandemic later, she finally found herself at the top podium again. This time in the form of an FKT on the Kokopelli Trail. On Nov. 6th, 2020 Lael Wilcox, Kurt Refsnider, and Kait all met in Moab at the start line of the Kokopelli, each of them on ITT's with FKT's on the mind. Kait was able to finish with a time of 13 hrs, 7 mins, which was good enough to beat the long standing time set by Rebecca Rush by 25 minutes. In doing so, she answered 2 years of questions and uncertainty. She was equally rewarded for her hard work, perseverance, and PATIENCE. As a personal fan, I remember cringing seeing the gruesome pics from her crash and injuries. It was hard to watch, I can't imagine how hard it was to live. * * Pictures courtesy of Rugile Kaladyte In addition to her accomplishments on the bike she is also the Co-Founder of Bikepacking Roots, which supports and advances bikepacking, the growth of a diverse bikepacking community, and access to and the conservation of the landscapes and public lands through which we ride. Her contributions on and off the bike are both impressive and valuable to this community that we all love. It was great to share in this milestone with her and hear about her journey over the past couple of years. Kait, congrats on the FKT, and we look forward to rooting for you in future races. You can learn more about Kait on her website or follow her on social media.
