Tamo Campos is a social justice activist, professional snowboarder, and filmmaker. Whether it’s riding volcano craters in Patagonia on his snowboard, participating in direct actions to confront climate change back home or inspiring crowds at universities, events and high schools, Campos has carved a creative blend of adventure and positive change. In 2013, he co-founded the group Beyond Boarding, a collective of snowboarders, artists, and activists that combine their love for the outdoors with environmental projects.
Campos is also the director of two international award winning films: A Last Stand For Lelu & Northern Grease. The films touch on indigenous land defense, climate change, environmental degradation and energy solutions.
There is nothing like shredding through a deciduous forest in the wintertime. No leaves means big open turns in the woods. It also means the odd chance of finding yourself in a birch tree grove with chaga mushrooms growing on the trees. Harvesting chaga is a great way to add immune boosting medicine to your mate gourd.
