About Rad Season


Oli Russell-Cowan is the Founder & CEO of Rad Season. He has over 20 years experience in International business development, spanning multiple industries including Action Sports, Events, Media, Digital, ICT, Travel and Tourism.

‘The idea came about when I was trekking around Latin America. I found it difficult to find cool events and festivals going on that were a bit different and had an element of adventure and general radness to them.

There was no detailed information or website with an easy to use calendar or location map saying what the festival and events season was and where it was happening for action sports and epic cultural events. I knew that there was always something rad worth going to somewhere in the world at a certain point in time, I just had to find it.’
