The Twelve Days of #Guidevibes

Scroll

In June of 2015 NRS launched our first ever social media campaign: #Guidevibes. Across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter we celebrated the lifestyle and culture of guides. By using the hashtag #Guidevibes and tagging @nrsweb, participants entered a weekly contest for some great prizes offered by NRS, Chaco, prAna, Yeti, Werner, and WRSI, as well as the Grand Prize–an NRS Outlaw raft filled with gear–which was announced in September.

When August came to an end, more than 3,000 photos had been submitted. From the urban SUP guide to the dirtbag river rat’s multi-day trip, to weekend sea kayaking sessions and Grand Canyon adventures, we received everything. Groovers, makeshift homes, guide olympics, five-star camp menu spreads; rain, sun, lightning storms, and some radical stills and videos of the forest fires that wreaked havoc across the northwest; we even got a marriage proposal.

In honor of #Guidevibes, and in spirit of the coming holidays, we offer you “The 12 Days of #Guidevibes.”
