It’s a pretty simple idea, but often forgotten by many of us when we become too distracted or busy: we work all day and then we just want to go home and binge-watch our shows on Netflix. What’s wrong with that?
Well, nothing… Except for staggeringly high statistics of childhood obesity, as well as overwhelming anxiety and depression in American adults. Being outdoors is scientifically proven to make your brain happier according to Harvard Health Publications: soaking in Vitamin D and walking around release serotonin–happy brain chemicals!
Senko Skipper is the brainchild of two entrepreneurs, Brendon Thach and Erin Patterson. When we started out, we didn’t think our photos or videos would amount to very much, not in today’s age when the internet is swarmed daily by highly engaging, entertaining and creative content.
We started simple. We posted photos on Instagram of what we were doing– hiking with our dog, cooking octopus, searching for fish in the middle of the night… To our utter dismay, thousands of people began liking us, following us, talking to us and asking for more!
So, here we are, I guess. Senko Skipper has been in the world for just over two years, and we’ve reached over 20 million people online and in person. All we’ve been doing throughout this time is observing, listening, learning, and then sharing. We hope to tell some of the greatest hidden stories told by people we meet around the world, find commonalities between people in different countries across the world, help others to be conscious of their actions, and help people everywhere find happiness and success on the water. Thanks for being with us.
