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 Grand Finale!

After a very successful trip down to California, I was really excited about the coming home to Squamish and doing the final premiere for the winter. While not a "sea kayaking crowd" per say, Squamish is home to adventures of all sorts and most importantly some of my best friends. I had been thinking for some time that it would be really fun to do a combined show withCURRENT SWELL. These guys are incredible musicians and put on a great live show. Everything started to line up when they agreed to come to Squamish on January 12th and we lined up Squamish's best venue...The Howe Sound Brew Pub.

The place was packed...the manager informed us we hit capacity of 125 about 15 minutes before the show and that they could not let anyone else in!

This was a super special night for Lise-Anne and I. Not only did all our local friends rally out, but several friends even came from far away including Justine, Shawna, and Leon. Plus we had a killer live band to rock out to after the film. Thanks to everyone who made it out!

These guys are getting big and 2008 will be their year! Thanks Current guys blew Squamish away.

Lise-Anne put some serious time in calling friends, family, and rallying Squamish. I love this beautiful woman!

I hope everyone is enjoying their Pacifc Horizons DVD's. We have some more shows coming in the Spring and we are busy gearing up for our next film.
