New KEEN Adventure Series Featuring Ari Delashmutt
KEEN Ambassador Ari Delashmutt travels the world soaring through the air on a paraglider or highline (a.k.a. super-long slackline hundreds of feet in the air). But it’s the new perspectives he gets on the ground—the unexpected moments born out of adventure travel—that transcend the experience.
Ari is sharing his adventures in a new KEEN film series, Ari in the Air. It kicks off in China, where Ari is simultaneously captivated and embraced by the culture and people there.
“I went to China to compete in slackline and paragliding competitions. But it’s the things that happened in between that ended up being the shining stars. They’re the stories that I won’t ever forget,” Ari says. “Those are the things that you can’t foresee. But if you spend enough time with the right attitude and in the right headspace, then you’re just going to run into them. And it’s super powerful.”
Watch the short video above to experience China through the eyes of a multi-sport adventurer, and stay tuned for more from Ari.
A skier, highliner, paraglider, filmmaker, and self-described “fun-haver,” KEEN Ambassador Ari Delashmutt puts a strong value on inspiring and helping others. His shoes of choice while adventuring through the land, water, and air of China: KEEN adventure sandals, Glenhaven shoes, and Citizen KEEN boots.
