Plug “froth” or “stoke” or “psyched” into a Google Search and the mug of the perpetually positive pro snowboarder from Utah, Alex Andrews, should pop up. With a smile that no hail storm could scrub off his face, the “Froth God” reminisces about the recent trip to Patagonia.

The High Art of Argentine Grilling

The broad, windswept vistas and fertile pampas of Argentina are both stunningly beautiful and ideally designed for nurturing Argentina’s culinary obsession: beef. Grilled beef to be exact. According to Francis Mallman, Argentina’s wild-haired culinary visionary and self-appointed spokesman, “grilling in Argentina isn’t just about the food. It is a ritual and a ceremony.”

Boys on the Backs of Beasts by Jeff Johnson

Boys on the Backs of Beasts by Jeff Johnson

The morning is cloudy with a cold bite in the air. Andres Kempel, a big-game hunting and fishing guide, has arrived. He is quiet and confident, old-school. We watch from the other side of the fence as he tosses saddles around effortlessly, balancing a smoke in his mouth. Little by little we wander towards him, gravitating to his energy. He smiles crookedly and shakes our hands. One thing is clear: Andres is a man amongst boys. Roark has a rival.
