The North Face, the world’s premier supplier of authentic, technically innovative outdoor apparel, equipment and footwear is accepting applications for The North Face Adventure Grant 2016, presented by AG Outdoor. Exploration is finding the thing we love and relentlessly pursuing it. It’s pushing the boundaries of our physical and creative self-expression. The North Face Adventure Grant has taken Australian and New Zealand explorers around the world, allowing them to attempt their boldest expeditions. From a peak-bagging saga through New Zealand, to exploratory canyoning on La Reunion, summit attempts in Nepal to Afghanistan, recipients of The North Face Adventure Grant have used the support to pursue their far-reaching goals in the great outdoors, to go in search of the unknown. The 2015 recipient, Jordan Searle will join fellow white water kayaker Ari Walker to attempt a first descent in New Zealand. Details are under wraps until the departure for the expedition next month. “My drive is internal, I like to see what hasn’t been seen before. To experience something pristine and natural. To paddle a river never done before forces you to decide everything for the first time, setting a precedent for those who will go there after you.” – Jordane Searle, The North Face Adventure Grant recipient 2015 Photo by Jordy Searle featuring Ari Walker, NZ Planning and executing an expedition is a monumental task.
