“Slacker” Fun Coming to CamelBak Pursuit Series

30 Aug, 2017

Connecting urbanites with the wonders of the great outdoors and providing them the opportunity to learn lifelong skills and hobbies that also maximize the experience, the CamelBak Pursuit Series ( arrives in 2017 to encourage people to reconnect with nature and reap the benefits of the natural environment. Through new and exciting activities and experiences, attendees, also known as Pursuers, are encouraged to step outside their comfort zones and find that hidden talent or passion. Alex Mason, professional Red Bull Slackline Champion, will be encouraging immersion in the outdoors through slackline integration.

The three-day CamelBak Pursuit Series events are turning Instagram envy into reality, creating an outdoors experience like no other, where at each CamelBak Pursuit Series event, Pursuers, will play hard, have fun and learn all of the outdoor activities and skills they’ve always dreamt about. Trusted brands and athletes, who have partnered with Pursuit Series to create an unintimidating and confidence-building experience, are providing expert guidance and gear for both weekends. Mason, from El Cerrito, California, on the east side of the San Francisco Bay, is a master at his pursuit, who discovered slacklining at the tender age of 13 and calls the sport a cross between gymnastics and tightrope walking. Mason trains consistently to stay at world-class level, and encourages people of all skill-levels to try the sport as “slacklining helps improve balance, strength and focus in all other sports, activities and day to day life. It’s one of the most transferable and satisfying skills to have. Plus, it’s super fun and brings out the kid in everyone.”

Pursuit Series Co-Founder Julia Stamps Mallon emphasizes that, “CamelBak Pursuit Series is about showcasing the beautiful accessibility of the outdoors, so whether you’re a camper or a glamper, downhill mountain-biker or a SUP boarder, there’s an amazing activity and an enlightening experience for you. Our aim is to inspire a connection to nature, and we’re excited to have Alex Mason and the support of Red Bull, to encourage a jump, or front-flip, into a new sport and a new way a looking at the possibilities of the outdoors.”

Mason will be holding Intro To Slacklining classes each day of the Sanborn CP event, from 3pm to 4pm, a full schedule can be seen here:
