Welcome to Mad to Live, a lifestyle platform founded by travel and adventure-mad freelance journalist, surfer, fitness nut and all-round life-lover Sophie Everard.

Mad To Live is a blog about living breathlessly through seeking everyday adventure.

With an international upbringing rooted in my inherited passion and thirst for travel and all that's the outdoors & ocean (thanks mum and dad), I can be currently found on the road, a roaming nomad, but have lived in Greece, Portugal, the sandy shores of Southern France, the Alps & Paris.

Mad To Live is a hub for all my creative, fitness, adventure-chasing ventures and published works, & the home of Mad To Live Retreats. My love of sport whether it’s on wheels, boards, snow, water or dirt can be charted since before I can remember. I've always been one for living breathlessly and bursting with energy, from living in the French Alps snowboarding, traveling solo to central America in search of waves, monkeys and margaritas , riding my wheels over 300 miles to Paris, or more simply scrabbling and running around the outdoors exploring.

My love of writing and the creativity associated with it has seen me contribute to international titles including I-D, Grazia, Cooler & Surf Girl, and I have a published book on snowboarding (Snowboarding: skills, training & Techniques) through Crowood Press.

I am stoked to have been featured & worked with amazing titles and brands including i-D, Nike, Chanel, The Telegraph, Avon, Sweaty Betty, Seafolly Australia, Women's Health, Elle Magazine, Grazia, Ivy Park, Glamour Magazine,
Roxy & more.

Want to say hey, share some chatter or work on a collaboration? Holla at me for all business enquiries & creative & creative musings.
