Ibis has a long-standing relationship (or should we say love affair?) with the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship. We've helped them raise a bunch of money for trail building in the Downieville and Graeagle area.

Stevie Smith and Brendog get after it on Project X in Idyllwild, CA - filmed exclusively with Sony Action Cams that they rigged with a bag of random stuff.
