Celebrating 5 Years of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series 2014

Celebrating 5 Years of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series 2014

Red Bull Cliff Diving 紅牛跳水大賽將於今年慶祝成立第五年,總共巡迴了19個國家與35個跳水地點。這樣運動只有越跳越高才能勝出!

Since 2009, the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series has revolutionised the sport of cliff diving. A total of 35 stops in 19 different countries have brought six different winners and three World Series champions and, with the complexity of the 27m dives continuing to increase, there is no telling what the next five years will bring!

We have “Ford ECOSPORT” project carry on from last year, though the competition still on progress and we are in the semi-final, but it’s already been a pleasure sharing our passion with you. This year we will introduce a New Theme for our website, we will keep on Exploring, and we will share more of our stories with you. So stay tuned!

Again I appreciate all of you to make moriteam an icon of passionate extreme sports athletics in Taiwan.

Longdong First Cave Climbing 龍洞第一洞

Longdong First Cave Climbing 龍洞第一洞

Joe reading Londong Guild Book at First Cave

農曆年前的最後一個周末我們與高雄來的Travis還有Daisy一同去龍洞攀岩。

禮拜六的天氣相當好,不會熱、不會冷;氣候溫和、陽光普照。

一開始Travis 與Daisy在 “黃金谷南區-浪之外” 爬一條multi pitch的路線,但是因為bolt太舊與太多落石,最後一個pitch並沒有爬完。

但令人開心的是這條路線是Daisy的第一條multi pitch,恭喜!!! 雖然落石差點打中在牆下睡午覺的Chet。

禮拜日又更熱鬧了Chris, Jason, Lou, Alice, Hiro, Hugo也加入了我們。Chris, Hiro and Lou在大禮堂爬傳攀路線,其他人則在第一洞。

我們在“第一洞 – 龍脊背面上半部” 架設了一些路線,大家爬得很開心,而且順帶一提 “280-粉圓陷阱” 這條5.12a的路線是這天的殺手,讓大家不斷的尖叫與努力嘗試。

下午天氣變差的很快,但我們絕對會再回到龍洞享受冬天暖暖的太陽!

Chris working hard on 280-Fen Yuan Trap 5.12a

Just before the Chinese New Year we had this trip to LongDong again.

This time we have Travis and Daisy meeting us from Kaohsiung.

Weather was perfect on Saturday. Not too hot, not too cold, sunny and warm.

Daisy and Travis was climbing at “Golden Valley South – Euro Wall”. It’s a multi pitch route, but the bolts and rocks are way too rusty and loose so they decide to give it up on the last pitch.

Also I’m glad to mention that this is Daisy’s First multi pitch accent, Congratulations!!! Tho when she was climbing the loose rock almost kill Chet who was having a nap near the wall. (Never take a nap near a climbing wall)

Sunday was more crowded, we have Chris, Jason, Lou, Alice, Hiro, Hugo catching us up. Chris, Hiro and Lou decide to trad climb some routes near “Grand Auditorium”. The rest of us stay at First Cave. We put some sports climb at “First Cave – Yellow Wall”. It was all fun, and I have to mention that “280- Fen Yuan Trap” this 5.12a really make us scream and keep on trying.

The weather turns cold fast so we have to leave, but we definitely come back for more.

Calcio Fiorentino Calcio Storico 足球比賽

Calcio Fiorentino Calcio Storico 足球比賽

MODERN GLADIATORS – CALCIO STORICO from David Battistella on Vimeo.

當我們都認為摔角、拳擊、自由搏擊、美式足球是相當暴力的運動時,來自義大利的 “Calcio Storico足球比賽” 告訴我們暴力只是得分的一個策略。

Calcio Storico 是一個於義大利 Firenze 城所舉辦的傳統足球賽 “Calcio Fiorentino”,該足球比賽已有近400年的歷史。每年來自城市四方的隊伍分別代表紅、白、藍與綠色四隊,於市中心的競技場上一決高下,也許在義大利人心中羅馬競技場仍以不同的形態存在!

Out of the way, Rugby. Step aside, Olympic Wrestling. Take a seat, MMA. We present to you, Calcio Storico (“Historic Football”), the most violent sporting event on earth. Every June, teams gather in Italy to take part and pay homage to the ancient game which is a mix of sport and combat.

Calcio Storico is a game that has been played in Firenze, Italia for centuries. Four teams; RED, WHITE, BLUE and GREEN, representing different parts of the city. Almost everything is allowed to score.

This is my take on that event. Put your helmet and seat belt on, it’s going to be a wild ride! The spirit of Gladiators is still alive.

Outside of sucker punches and kicks to the head, seams like everything is fair game. Here’s a little taste.

Your Verse Anthem

“啊! 我! 啊! 生命! 這個問題不斷重演,在漫無目的綿延車廂中、在充滿愚人的城市裡,身處其中的意義為何?”

因為你在這裡,因為生命以獨特性存在,因為偉大的戲劇持續演者,因為…你可以為其演出一段!

你準備演出你的偉大詩篇了嗎?

來自 Apple 的新廣告,轉錄 1989 年電影 春風化雨 Dead Poets Society 經典橋段!

Apple iPad air TV commercial from Dead Poets Society where John Keating (played by Robin Williams) says to his students:

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, “O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?” Answer. That you are here – that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?

《ECOSPORT x 勇闖我的新世代》 爬, 再次開始探索

《ECOSPORT x 勇闖我的新世代》 爬, 再次開始探索

這是一個關於台灣福特 “勇闖我的新世代” 的比賽影片。
每一個人向福特申請他的夢想,由福特選出冠軍,並獲得一百萬的贊助來完成這個夢。
我在整理2013攀岩影片時得到這個資訊,所以我決定把我的攀岩影片與這個比賽結合。

我的計畫是透過攀岩讓朋友們再次替體驗探索與發現的樂趣,就像小嬰兒一樣。因為爬行與攀爬是我們探索未知的第一種方式。
所以不管你會不會攀岩,還是想體驗攀岩,都歡迎你觀看與分享這部影片喔!

謝謝所有幫助我完成這個影片的朋友!!!

This is my project for Ford’s competition in Taiwan.
Each one of us submits their dreams and the winner will get sponsored by Ford for A Million NTD.
They gave me this info while I was making my 2013 climbing highlights. So why not merge my project with this comp?
My plan is to bring friends to experience climbing and enlighten them to explore and discover, like when we were babies. Cause climbing and crawling is our first way to explore the unknown.
So no matter if you are a climber or want to learn climbing. You all welcome to watch the video and share it.

Thanks to all of loving friends to make this video possible!!!
