Using the Pacific Northwest as the dynamic environment that carries the film from beginning to end, Bryan Smith takes us up close with the core elements of sea kayaking. Blending wildlife, people, and places, Pacific Horizons motivates all sea kayakers to get out and go kayaking. The film features segments on Dubside, Quadra Island Tidal Races, Skookumchuck Narrows, Keirron Tastagh and Jeff Norville's 14 day Circumnavigation of Vancouver Island, San Juan Islands, The Oregon Coast, Columbia River Gorge, Remote West Coast Vancouver Island Locations, Queen Charlotte Islands, and much more.

The Official Trailer for Pacific Horizons!

Tuesday, October 30, 2007


Pacific Horizons has been completed and everyone's first peak at the DVD is just a few weeks away. 60 minutes of stunning images and great sea kayaking, plus a bunch of extras including a purely surfing segment, director's cut, and Justine Curgenven's teaser from her trip around Haida Gwaii with Shawna and Leon of BBB. I think eveyone is going to enjoy it and I'm sure it will inspire many! Here is what the cover looks like....the DVD label will be a suprise.

We have also locked in the dates for the northwest premiere tour. These events are going to be a lot of fun and an opportunity for those of you local to get out and get the very first DVD's available. We'll have some swag to give away and are looking forward to getting everyone out talking kayaking!

We are going to Banff!

I just received the notice that Pacific Horizons was chosen as a finalist for the 2007 BANFF MOUNTAIN FILM FESTIVAL! Lise-Anne and I will be travelling to Alberta to present the film on the big screen Saturday November 3 and then it will play again in a smaller theater on Nov 4th. Banff is considered one of the most prestigious adventure film festivals in the world and has been a dream of mine for the past couple years. Needless to say we are excited to be a part of this years event and also have a shot at making the 2007 BANFF WORLD TOUR! This will kick off a series of premieres on the west coast and the release of the DVD. We will be posting information on the November release of the DVD and when and where it will be available here soon, as well as a complete list of West coast premiere dates.
