More About Paddle for the North: “1,500 km, 6 mates, 6 rivers, 3 canoes, 2 months, 1 idea.” Six friends embark on an epic 1500 km adventure through six remote North American rivers. They overcome class six rapids, a grueling portage and a 130 km paddle upriver, against the flow. Director Simon Lucas’ documentary is “a boys-own-adventure turned into a mission to show the world why some places are worth preserving.”
More About Kayaking the Aleutians: “In the summer of 2014, Justine Curgenven and Sarah Outen traversed the Aleutian Islands, completing what was, in my mind, perhaps the greatest, as yet undone, technical sea kayak expedition in the world. The film is spectacular, full of high adventure, a touching friendship, and some of the most magnificent scenery on earth.” – Jon Turk
