@britttten living that raft guide life on the Salmon.🤙🏽
✏Every morning on the river my watch alarm beeps at 6:05 and I wish so bad I could keep sleeping because I am NOT a morning person. But as I lay there, I reach behind me and grab my beanie to hide the disaster that is my sleeping bag hair and throw it on, climb out of my cozy cozy bag into the chilly morning air and walk 15 feet to our camp's kitchen to start the process of making coffee and breakfast for our guests. Waking up is hard, but cooking yummy food in the quiet river mornings is one of my favorite things. The river is the best place. And getting to wear a swimsuit all day everyday is a perk I can handle. #naturefirst
Professional sailors @capndarling & @_alli_sun_ are no strangers to grand adventure.⛵
Together they have accrued approximately 150k nautical miles. For the past year, they have been running a traditional 72' gaff rigged shooter in the Aegean Sea. This duo sailed to some of the most remote islands in the Greek archipelago, through some of the toughest seas on the planet. Shoreside exploring on the mountainous rocky islands of the aegean is littered with amazing hiking among some of the most stunning and dramatic scenery imaginable.
They found that they really needed some footwear that had a crossover between the two platforms. Something that could be worn while climbing the rigging, walking the bowsprit, riding in the tender to shore, and hopping out on a sandy beach to look for the trailhead. That's where #astralfootwear joined in on the adventure.
Ever wonder why kayakers make such incredible gear testers? Exhibit A: If @aniolserrasolses tells us our new kicks can stand up to these insane hikes into the river plus all of his other shenanigans, we're feeling great about 'em.👌🏽 #astralfootwear 📷@guyfattalphotography

Before there was Astral, there was Nature. That's why we will continue to put it first in every aspect of our company culture and product design. #NatureFirst 📷@zack_splaine_photography

Meet the shoe that started it all, the Brewer. 👆🏽Our original outdoor sneaker is designed with freakishly sticky grip, drainage for water and silt, durable Cordura fabric and did we mention its stylish good looks? #astralfootwear 📷@dead_head93
