How to Film Your Adventures


Capturing your adventures is easier than ever with powerful cameras on our smartphones, bomb-proof action cameras you can attach to almost anything and drones small enough to throw into our rucksacks.

Creating cool edits of your adventures and being able to share them adds so much value - not only can they inspire others to get outdoors but they will also be a great memory for you to look back on.

In this season’s third episode of ‘How To: XV’, snowboarder Xavier de le Rue explains how he makes his videos, including the gear he uses and his recommendations for the best filming angles to make a dynamic and creative edit.


Sharing your adventures


Equally as important as sharing your videos is the ability to share your adventure routes and waypoints.

With our share button, you can share adventures directly to social media or copy the URL link and share it via messages, emails and more.

Along with this you can also embed our maps on your website and blogs and they look awesome!
