HANAH Heroes

HANAH supports some of the world’s top athletes, adventurers, creatives, and entrepreneurs.

Jimmy Chin

Jimmy Chin

World-renowned climber, mountaineer, skier, filmmaker and photographer, Jimmy Chin inspires both behind the lens of a camera and in front. He leads breakthrough explorations around the globe, working with the best adventurers, climbers, snowboarders and skiers on their most challenging expeditions. As a filmmaker, his documentary Meru chronicled the first ascent of Shark's Fin in the Garwhal Himalayas—winning the prestigious Audience Award at Sundance. He has climbed Everest twice and was one of the first Americans, alongside Kit and Rob Deslauriers, to ski from its summit. Whether on the road or at home, Jimmy incorporates HANAH into his daily routine.

Ian Walsh

Ian Walsh

Maui native and surf icon Ian Walsh is one of the most passionate and dedicated big wave surfers in the world. He first surfed the legendary wave Jaws at age 16, not long before graduating high school as valedictorian of his class. After competing successfully on the World Surf League circuit for years, he decided to focus on finding the best and biggest waves on the planet. With a deep passion for his community, he launched the annual Ian Walsh Menehune Mayhem surf contest in 2003 to create a platform for kids to express sporting ability, academics and the arts. He also co-founded Paia Bowls açaí café with his brother Luke. Ian’s recent film Distance Between Dreams captures the most historic winter of his lifetime, if not the most historic big wave season ever.

Angel Collinson

Angel Collinson

Angel Collinson grew up skiing in the heart of the Wasatch Range in Utah, living out of a van before it was the cool thing to do and playing in the mountains with her brother and parents. She ski raced and competed internationally until big mountain skiing stole her heart. Now she competes on the Freeskiing World Tour and studies environmental law. In the summer she maximizes her love of nature, rock climbing, river rafting and kayaking. Angel is a true ambassador for protecting the planet, and we’re proud she takes HANAH with her on her epic journeys.

Travis Rice

Travis Rice

Travis Rice’s snowboard exploits are second-to-none. From Winter X Games gold medals to legendary performances in dozens of snowboard movies such as The Art of Flight and The Fourth Phase, Travis has spun and flipped himself into one of the most influential snowboarders of all time. He is also extremely health conscious and believes in looking at food as

We’re stoked to work with him and to see the amazing places he takes HANAH ONE, like on his boat in Tahiti.

Jeremy Jones

Jeremy Jones

Jeremy Jones has spent a lifetime in front of the camera and has inspired a generation of snowboarders. Now, a household name in the snow scene, he is using his weight to raise awareness of the impacts of climate change. His organization, Protect Our Winters (POW), has become the leading organization in the snow sports community. HANAH is proud to be keeping him on top of his mental game while on this increasingly important crusade.

Kit DesLauriers

Kit DesLauriers

Champion skier, accomplished ski mountaineer, published author, and frequent history maker, Kit’s roster of accolades are awe inspiring. She is the first person to ski from all the Seven Summits—the highest mountain on each of the seven continents—after climbing them first. She also made several first ski descents in the Brooks Range of Alaska and is the first woman to win two consecutive world freeskiing championship titles. You can see why she was National Geographic’s Adventurer of the Year in 2015 and one of Outside Magazine’s Top 25 Athletes of the Year. Living in the Teton Range of Wyoming with her husband Rob and two daughters, she continues to balance an athletic career, epic ski expeditions, raising a family, and advocating for the environment.

Bibi McGill

Bibi McGill

An internationally renowned guitarist, Bibi is not your typical rock star. The Denver-raised musician, who spent 8 years as lead guitarist and musical director of Beyoncé’s band, is also an acclaimed yoga teacher, wellness educator and health food entrepreneur. Bibi swears by HANAH’s super food powers to support mental clarity, focus and clean energy.

Mark Abma

Mark Abma

Hailing from British Columbia, Canada, Mark is a professional big mountain skier known for his smooth, aggressive style and outgoing personality. He has filmed with Matchstick Productions every year since 2003, as well as appearing in several Warren Miller and Poor Boyz films. Quite the departure from his early days as a competitive mogul skier. Today you’ll find Mark on the slopes, in the park or skinning until the sun goes down, taking HANAH along to fuel his adventures.

Otto Flores

Otto Flores

Otto Flores resides wherever the waves are good. While he technically calls Puerto Rico home, he’s been known to drop everything to chase big barrels. An accomplished rider from a young age, he left competitive surfing so he could travel the world to seek out the most challenging waves. He also co-founded Granito de Arena, a surf and environmental nonprofit that works with youth in low-income communities. Now, after many magazine covers and still a lot left in the tank, Otto has found the benefits of HANAH keep his energy levels up while jet setting around the world.

Mark Carter

Mark Carter

Mark Carter is a rancher and outdoorsman who happens to be pretty awesome at snowboarding. Sponsored for the latter activity for the last twenty years while keeping his ranch hand fresh as well, he truly embodies the modern outdoorsman. We at HANAH love to know that we’re with him from activities as varied as snowboarding to herding.

Kalle Carranza

Kalle Carranza

A Mexican/Finn who was born in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, Kalle Carranza grew up surfing the coastlines of Riviera Nayarit. He became a successful pro surfer at a young age—he was named one of the top 100 young surfers in the world by Surfer Magazine, won a national title, traveled the world with sponsorship deals, and appeared on the cover of 10 international magazines. In 2008, he shifted gears and moved to Finland to get a university degree. While there, he realized his true passion was dissecting the complex sport of surfing and teaching it to others. He spent the next few years creating a thoughtful step-by-step surf instructing program. He currently runs a company called I Love Waves in Sayulita, teaches, surfs, and commentates for surf contests.

Willie McMillon

Willie McMillon

A legend in the snowboard industry and the underground mayor of Jackson, Wyoming, Willie McMillon has never done business the traditional way. He started his company Bluebird Wax in 1996 in his kitchen with a homemade recipe and some muffin tins. Bluebird’s tagline, “Snowboarding… it was better when you hated us,” gives an idea of how OG it is, not to mention their roster of riders includes some of the best in the world. Knowing Willie lives only for what he loves and does only what he believes in keeps us on our toes and truthful to our mission—we’re stoked he was one of our first HANAH Heroes.

Taro Tamai

Taro Tamai

Taro splits his seasons into two passions...snowboarding and surfing. He founded Gentemstick, which pioneered the ‘short board revolution’, spawning a new ‘Snowsurf’ board whose shortness allows for more aggressive maneuvers on snow. A pioneer for both snow and surf seasons, Taro has also taken an extreme liking to the benefits of HANAH One. Life is too short to not pursue your passions and HANAH One allows Taro to catch one more wave or make one more epic run on his world famous board.

Rip Zinger

Rip Zinger is the consummate ambassador. A liaison for many who have come to Japan in search of the famous winter pow, he’s known for uttering the words,“Go here and do this, go there and do that. Go here and meet this guy.” He’s got your back...and now HANAH One has his. When traveling the globe for Stussy, book signings, skateboarding, or photography he’s got his jar of One with him as his daily superfood.

Nicole Duke

Nicole Duke

Nicole Duke crushes at sports. For over 20 years, she has been a sponsored athlete and recently was crowned the Masters Cyclocross Champion after taking a brief (and successful) foray into the whitewater stand-up paddling scene. HANAH provides Nicole with the focus and stamina she needs to stay on top.
