Jill Kintner joins me for a late night interview near Zion National Park to debrief on #formation, a Redbull community event bringing together professional female mountain bikers in a non-competitive way to dig lines, co-create, and push their riding limits mentally and physically. From the outside, professional athletes can appear to have hard and intimidating exteriors, but my conversation with Jill will forever be a reminder to push those assumptions to the backseat and proceed with an open mind. While we touch on mountain biking and her wildly successful career as a rider, I’m most excited to share with you... just Jill. We go deep and learn who Jill really is as a woman, what has driven her to win 22 National Championships, a bronze in the Olympics for BMX, and what shaped her as a kid, including a traumatic but hilarious paper route story.

Meg Haywood Sullivan, a photographer and environmental storyteller cozies up next to me in Salted Carmela for a sunrise interview in Venice Beach. She sets the stage by gifting me Copal incense from South America; legend has it Copal was offered to the Gods in the Aztec and Mayan Pyramids, and I’m giddy as I know an interview full of imaginative stories and inspiration is ahead. With mom as an artist and dad a photographer, she carries the torch forward by using photography as a lens to inspire others to care about the planet. As a Surfrider Ambassador she’s always using her voice and platform for good, and has done countless creative projects for companies like KEEN, Patagonia, prAna, and Clif Bar. Meg talks about letting go of perfection, tools for combating climate change and her personal strategy for eating meat, and the secret behind the 37 minute nap.

Amanda Prifti joins us from Boston as she’s preparing for her next season with Sea Sisters in Weligama, Sri Lanka. She and her co-pilot Martina founded this non-profit to provide swim and surf programs for Sri Lankan girls as a tool to shift the collective mindset around gender roles in this country, and press for equal opportunities. In a country where women traditionally stay home to raise children, cook and clean, the tide is slowly changing for the women of Sri Lanka, and the look on their faces say they’re stoked!
