Live Out is a new online community to outdoor enthusiasts and action sports fans at http://www.liveout.org. The site encourages and enables participation in sports and outdoor activities by consolidating various resources into a comprehensive social networking platform that allows people to connect with each other and find places and information based on their interests.
Live Out launched worldwide on January 3, 2014. Co-Founder Scott McGuire explains, “Live Out is designed to be a central hub for people with sports & outdoor interests - everything from camping, hunting, and fishing, to snowboarding, mountain biking, and skydiving. We make it easy for people to connect to one another and access information based on the activities they like.”
Live Out consolidates a variety of resources into a single, unprecedented platform. One of the main pillars of the site is a comprehensive maps feature that provides information and reviews on locations for different outdoor activities ranging from skydiving, mountain biking, and skateboarding to recreational activities like hiking, camping, and fly-fishing. The site also features an extensive directory of groups, events, competitions, businesses, classifieds, and forums filtered by interest and location. Members can even bookmark all their favorite online sports & outdoor websites so they can access things like blogs, forums, and news directly from their profiles without leaving the site.
In addition to aggregating information and resources, Live Out encourages participation in outdoor activities through a variety of features designed to reinvigorate people’s enthusiasm for the outdoors. Members can set goals, earn badges, enter competitions, and share their bucket list ideas about things to do and places to go. “We bring the people, places, gear and services to you - so you can spend less time searching, and more time doing the things you love most,” says McGuire.
