In Perpetual Motion - 4min
Understanding the motives of
an artist is complicated and layered as every artist is motivated differently.
The audience is given an insight to Adventure Photographer Krystle Wright and
in particular how different fears are interwoven with her life and ultimately
her work as a photographer. A photographer is not defined by a singular shot,
it is the process of photography that is a wild ride as it passionately
consumes the lifestyle as so often it is the driving force in how a
photographer engages with the world that surrounds them.
Headwindhaters - 6min
A pedal powered adventure to the Western
Travel slow. Put down your phone. Take in
your surroundings. Smell the wind. Taste the rain. Feel the sun that escapes
the clouds. That was the plan..
We rode around 400kms and rode up some bloody
big hills, probably not Tour du France big but when towing your lives, boards
and supplies behind you in a trailer they were bloody big, and bloody painful.
We took in our surroundings and tasted the peat, we felt more aware, we rode
around spiders crossing the road, we watched as butterflies fluttered beside us
and everyone we passed said hello even the sheep. In Stornaway someone told me
'There are no happy cyclists on Lewis'
well, even as we cycled into 50mph headwinds which turned into brisk
offshores propelling us to the waves, we all had big smiles behind the grimaces.

Bruhwiler Country - 7min
Coming up with a second act
after a pro surfing career can be a tough one to pull off. Mastery in wave
riding after all, doesn‰Ûªt necessarily transfer to the wider job market. But
the skill set Raph Bruhwiler developed as Canada‰Ûªs first professional surfer
entailed a lot more than honing the perfect cutback. Uncovering the surf
potential of Vancouver Island meant becoming an expert in coastal navigation,
wilderness survival, and maritime operations. The exact requirements for the
work he now does in the Canadian Coast Guard as a rescue specialist based in
his hometown of Tofino, British Columbia, where he and his wife and 3 children
live and surf.

Into Twin Galaxies - A Greenland Epic - 52min
Crossing the Greenland Ice
cap by kite ski is epic. Making a first descent of a river draining that ice
cap is landmark. But accessing that river by towing a kayak across the ice cap
to the river's headwaters to kayak down to the Arctic Ocean is unprecedented;
and that is exactly what National Geographic 'adventurers of the year' Erik
Boomer, Sarah McNair Landry and Ben Stookesberry want to do.
Utilizing Sarah's extensive polar
experience, the team uses snow kites to cross the 1000km ice sheet, before
descending through an unknown and dangerous maze of crevasses to access the
source of the river.
With rapids so big they are visible from
satellite images, this spectacular river is a challenge for even Ben and Eric,
two of the top paddlers in the world.
A ski accident at the beginning of the
expedition almost sets an end to
