About us

Everything happens for a reason.

Even the most incredible things. The same happened with us. We have done exactly what people around us said would be impossible – work together and stay friends. The more they kept saying so, the more our challenge grew.

All of us had been for many years involved in different sports and activities, (sailing, kayaking, rock climbing, mountaineering), but this was a new thing and none of us knew if it would work.
We met as four totally different people, four individuals who hardly knew each other. However, all our differences and individual qualities brought out shared love that put us together – love and responsibility towards the nature, adventure, freedom…and these made decision for us.

Is it possible to do things you like, make a living doing it, at the same time not being harmful to your environment? To bring (as many) people (as we can) to the nature and simplicity of life with a minimum of technology? We found the way and set out to achieve our goals.
Using four basic elements: earth, air, water, fire (in us), in combination with sail, paddle, rope, and our bodies as tools, we managed to make ourselves and people around us happier…
