Pacific Horizons

Bryan Smith has not sit still. After helping to create the highly successful sea kayak school Body Boat Blade International (with Shawna Franklin and Leon Sommé), he broadened his paddling horizon into Canada where, among other things, he now is in the process of finishing his first sea kayaking film "Pacific Horizons". I felt privileged paddling and working with Bryan on various occasions. First a chance-meeting in Anglesey and later at US sea kayaking symposia. If you have seen This is the Sea II, you will remember his stunning performance in the Skookumchuck tidal feature. High on my list of "thrilling things to do" is to paddle Skooks. Getting thrashed there is probably a more accurate description. Bryan is not new to filming and editing. I have seen some of his excellent video diaries. Justine, you have major 'competition' here ;-) The trailer is now on-line on Bryan's Pacific Horizons blog. WOW!!!, cannot wait for the release! Something new, just on the horizon.
On YouTube I found another sneak preview of Dubside in Pacific Horizons.
