Episode Summary

Episode 4
Adventures featuring typhoon surfing, bouldering, and long distance endurance running. Our 4th show of 2007 kicks off with the Red Bull mission entitled Tai Fu. From July to September each year, Japan lives in fear of typhoons (Tai Fu) that are capable of taking lives and devastating coastlines. When a typhoon strikes, citizens are sent running for safety, but for big-wave veterans Ross Clarke-Jones, Ian Walsh, Carlos Burle and others, the chance to ride the waves of a massive typhoon is the only thing on their minds. Also, join us in Bishop, California with Lisa Rands, as she explores "high-ball bouldering" on the Buttermilk Boulders in the area. Lisa is the first woman to climb some of the scariest boulders in North America, without the protection of a rope. And finally, witness The Western States 100 - one of the oldest, ultra trail, endurance runs in the world. The one day, 100-mile race is an extreme mental and physical challenge for each runner as they traverse the terrain of the Squaw Valley floor and Emigrant Pass, attempting to reach the finish in Auburn, California. While beautiful, the trail is relentless in its challenges and unforgiving to the ill-prepared.moreless
