[WOMAN WHISPERING] All around you.

TRAVIS RICE:
To seek is not

to be content with where one is.

To seek is to fantasize

that there is more.

I am a seeker.

[MUSIC]

PROFESSOR:
We all learn that

water has three phases.

The solid state, the liquid state,

and also the vapor state.

You can't explain

all the known properties of water

with three phases alone,

you need a fourth phase.

As children we have this natural

tendency to explore.

And then we go to school and we

have to give the right answer.

This has a tendency to squeeze out of us

the truth-seeking nature

that comes as a human being.

[MUSIC]

Because of the institutionalized

nature of science,

scientists have become more hesitant

to challenge perceived truth.

[CRACKING]

If we want to get to real truth,

we have to dig down beneath the foundations.

[PANTS]

[MUSIC]

[MUSIC]

Yes!

Yes!

[BOTH EXCLAIMING]

That was beautiful, man.

- We stomped?

- Yeah.

F*ck, yeah, dude.

Oh!

[MUSIC]

TRAVIS:
There is absolutely

an art to building jumps.

Excavating efficiency,

structure, architectural sanity.

It's kinda like our arts and crafts,

to do the trajectories right,

do the transition...

- It looks sweet, it's just...

- ...not too much compression.

A little bit of late pop.

Building jumps, man.

That's what we do and we do it well.

I think we can do this in three hours.

PAT MOORE:
Working with Travis is kinda

like banging your head against the wall

over and over,

until eventually

your brains spill out. [LAUGHS]

It's a pleasure building jumps

with you in the backcountry, Pat.

It's a pleasure working for you.

[BOTH LAUGHING]

["IRON SWAN" PLAYING]

Welcome to Wyoming!

Better act accordingly.

[MUSIC]

[MUSIC PAUSES]

[MUSIC]

[WHISPERING] Got to whisper right now

'cause I can't talk too loud.

He's getting excited.

[MUSIC]

MAN:

It's crazy to think it's been 11 years

since Travis brought me out to

the backcountry, that first time.

He's just kinda,

like a older brother to me,

always pushing me a little bit further.

Just gave me the glimpse

of what was possible.

[MUSIC]

[MUSIC]

BRYAN IGUCHI:

Business as usual, man, [LAUGHS]

blowing my minds the first time

we went out on his jump.

[SOFT INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC PLAYING]

BRYAN IGUCHI:

Travis and I definitely share this path.

It's kind of a migration

based on hydrology.

TRAVIS RICE:
I was just obsessed

with the processes of nature.

I remember, as a kid,

watching people surfing,

the water, how good it felt to play...

I realized that the storms that were

providing this great surf would provide

amazing snow in the mountains.

I had this epiphany.

I was dedicating my life to this process.

It's just like a natural instinct,

there's something primitive,

something that goes a little bit deeper

than just playing or just riding.

The laws of nature are the most

powerful laws in existence.

[INSPIRATIONAL INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC PLAYING]

TRAVIS:
Water evaporates...

Clouds form...

Life begins.

The snowstorm atop high peaks...

falls heavy...

settles...

melts...

flows through tributaries,

streams...

into rivers...

and finds the sea...

then returns to the air.

This process we follow,

this cycle we ride.

["WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE" PLAYING]

Travis!

# Where #

# Do we go from here? #

Yea, Guch.

Excitement and discovery is, like,

the best thing about being out here.

You can't do it all in a lifetime.

Dude, I think that's an arch.

It looks like it goes.

What do you think on approach?
