Happy Shane McConkey Day

5th Anniversary of Tragedy Has Special Meaning

On March 26, 2009, Shane McConkey was killed in a tragic ski-BASE jumping accident while filming for Red Bull and Matchstick Productions in the breathtaking Dolomites of Italy. Five years ago, the skiing world lost one of it’s most influential and charismatic characters. One of the fathers of rocker technology, Shane pushed skiing to challenge old ideals and reminded us all that at it’s core, Skiing is a pursuit of happiness. We all lost one of Life’s joy ambassadors and it seemed as though things became a bit darker.

However, it has become increasingly clear, especially with recent events in my life, that the ripple effects of tragic moments should be harnessed for happiness rather than a deployment for sorrow. These moments should stand as a reminder of the tenderness and fragility of life. Rather than using them for points of struggle and condemnation, we can move forward with the awareness of Life’s gentle nature and act out of love rather than anger, passion rather than fear. Let us use this day to act as if Shane would act. Smile and give a smile, live brilliantly and ferociously in every tender moment, lean into them and extract every drop of juice from their fruit, then give back twice as much as you took.

Thank you Shane. Today is your day. “You have one life. Live it.” Read More
