If you have ever wanted to see what it's like inside a kayak manufacturer plant then be prepared to have all your dreams fulfilled.Palm Equipment is a manufacturer out of the United Kingdom that sells paddling clothing, PFD’s, spray decks, as well as manufacturer Dagger kayaks for the European market.The video is below.
This is easily one of the best looking short films I have seen in a long, long time. Put together by renowned photographer and body boarder Mickey Smith, Dark Side of the Lens is a poem set to images and music dealing with his motivations behind surfing and surf photography."Originally I planned for the film to be more anonymous, rather than biographical, an all encompassing piece, to represent the photographers keeping the surfing machine afloat", explains Smith.  “Something that offers insight into what it takes to grind out a living as a water-based photographer in the surfing industry: a short experimental glimpse at a life lived in the shadow of obsessive photographic pursuits."Listen for the best quote in the film: "If I only scrape a living, at least it’s a living worth scraping."
Alex Matthews and Nick Castro kayak the caves and arches of Port Renfrew - a small community on the west coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. The video gets exciting after the 1:30ish mark.Video after the jump:

Rock Hopping Around Oregon [Video]

There is some great rock hopping footage throughout in the video below but Paul Kuthe shows us how it’s done around the 56 second mark.Nicely put together by Christopher Lockyer.
Sea Kayaking UK just released a quick teaser trailer for a Kayaking DVD they are working on. The good news is that it’s focusing on rough water paddling. The bad news is that they are going to be working on it over the next year.Looks good so far.Thanks to On Kayaks for the video lead.
