#OutLivingIt

We’re stoked it’s the weekend! We’re getting ready to adventure on over the next two days. How are you #outlivingit this weekend?

We’ve almost reached our end of year fundraising goal! Thank you to everyone who has already generously donated to First Descents this holiday season but we still need your help in reaching our goal! If everyone in the FD community donated $10 today, we would raise over $300,000 for young…

We just wrapped our final international adventure of the year with two weeks spent in Guatemala! Huge thanks to @walkingtreetravel for helping organize an incredible adventure through jungles, rivers, volcanoes and so much more!

Sending routes in Thailand! First Descents adventured in some of the most beautiful places in the world this year for our FDX/international offerings. Where do you want to see FD go next? Photo by @rikapeterman
