They say everyone needs a hobby they can do well past their peak athleticism. Some people play golf, some people do woodwork….well when Travis Rice decides to stop being the most well rounded big mountain snowboarder on the planet he can retire to sail the open seas in his badass yacht Falcor, which he has owned for over six years. Travis has a unique perspective on sailing how it has helped him develop as a man:
“She has really transformed into a spaceship in the sense that she is completely off grid and capable of multi-month trips without the need for water, power or provisions… She takes a huge amount of work but over the years my lady and I have learned the ins and outs of her and through pure necessity I have become a mechanic, electrician, plumber, medic, gourmet boat chef and tour host to name a few… Thank you Falcor for always challenging me to learn.”
Travis Rice finally made it to Hawaii to culminate a 2,497 nautical miles trip around the South Pacific. Well done Travis, whats your next adventure?
Rolled into Hawaii under breeze and departing Solaris… Such an epic and honored to raise Hawaii out of the ocean like the ancients did with none of the tech we have.
