Travis Rice would rather be sailing, HANAH Rituals goes to French Polynesia
Follow Travis Rice to the South Pacific
Travis Rice needs no introduction. But what some may not know is that the legendary big mountain snowboarder spent the last six years of his offseasons at the helm of his catamaran Falcor.
Travis’s love for the great outdoors began at a young age. He took up snowboarding, then sailing, then learned how to surf. Thus, his ultimate dream to eventually split time between snowboarding big mountains and surfing big waves was born.
After way too much research on boats, he found Falcor, spent three years getting acquainted with her, then sailed her to French Polynesia via the Panama Canal. The boat has played a central role in his life ever since, also appearing in his latest film “The Fourth Phase.” Most importantly though, Falcor and being on the water brought him a sense of balance and peace during an otherwise hectic schedule, and taught him—out of sheer necessity—to be a mechanic, electrician, plumber, medic, gourmet boat chef and tour host.
HANAH caught up with Travis, pro snowboarder Mark Carter and HANAH founder Joel Einhorn on one of Travis’s last days aboard Falcor before he sailed her to Hawaii. Check out what a day in the South Pacific is like for Travis and crew as they hunt for the elusive tiare apetahi flower, and how Travis lives up to his reputation of master boat chef.
Rituals is an exclusive HANAH video series that explores the routines of some of the world’s most inspiring athletes, adventurers and entrepreneurs. In an effort to inspire, motivate and share ideas, they have graciously given us a peek into their own rituals. We hope you enjoy this very personal series.
