Pro Snowboarder Travis Rice took a break from fresh powder to taste some ocean spray as he sailed away with Oracle Team USA.
Travis was able to show off his sailing skills as he joined skipper Jimmy Spithill and his crew onboard at the America’s Cup World Series meeting in San Francisco. The snowboarding sensation came up close and personal with elite sailing as he got to grips with the rigging on the Oracle Team USA AC45 vessel.
Travis has made no secret of his love of sailing and recently embarked on an Atlantic Ocean odyssey from Chesapeake Bay to Granada. However, nothing could prepare him for the “mind blowing” experience of an America’s Cup race.
As one of the best all-around snowboarders of all-time Travis knows what it takes to get to the top of his game but even the two-time X Games gold medal winner was in awe of Jimmy Spithill and his crew.
You can watch this weekend’s racing from 2:00 pm PDT Saturday and 11:30 am PDT on Sunday. Both day’s sailing will be broadcast live around the world on the America’s Cup YouTube channel…
