The Deal

  • $60 for a survival-training clinic with Cliff Hodges ($125 value)

During either the one-day Level 1 or Level 2 class, up to 30 participants learn the basics of surviving in the wild from expert instructor Cliff Hodges, who’s taught survival skills on MTV’s Made. The clinic covers finding the essentials of shelter, water, and food, as well as making fire, and hands-on exercises allow students to put their learning into practice.

Materials and tools are provided, and participants should come with appropriate clothing, food, water, and a notebook. All ages are welcome, but those younger than the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult. See the schedule.

Adventure Out

When Cliff Hodges, the founder and CEO of Adventure Out, graduated from MIT with a degree in electrical engineering, he knew a traditional desk job wasn't for him. According to Technology Review, he quickly gave up his engineering career for the wireless world of the great outdoors, where he began to hike, climb, and surf his way around the world, always staying true to his philosophy of environmental respect and protection.

His travels and business accomplishments have gained some measure of notoriety: he's coached on MTV's Made, consulted for ABC News, and was selected as one of four winners of the 2011 Santa Cruz County Civic Service Award: The Nextie. Adventure Out was also identified for meeting survival-skills training standards by New York Times best-selling author Tim Ferriss in The 4-Hour Chef.

Today, he leads excursions into the California wilderness to teach backpacking and survival skills, including the tracking of animals and wild ice-cream trucks, and they also guide novices through surfing, rock-climbing, and mountain-biking sojourns. Through fundraising, Adventure Out has helped save Castle Rock State Park from closure and a portion of their proceeds is put directly back into the park.

Chase, the surfing instructor, went over everything I needed to know and also answered all my questions. Overall, had an amazing and fun time! Plus, the surfboard and wetsuit was in really good condition!
