Check out this very cool raw footage from a recent five day canoe trip in Woodland Caribou Provincial Park north of Kenora, Ontario.
The film was shot by Justin Evidon using a Canon 5D Mark 2 and even in its raw, uncut form, it looks fantastic. Make sure you stick around for the forest fire footage. It seems a little close to their campsite if you ask me...
There is a great set of Flickr photos of the trip but sadly sharing has been disabled so I can only provide a link.

I can all but guarantee that you are not having as much fun today as this 2-year old boy is when he went out surfing for the first time.
If you didn’t at least smile while watching you have a heart of stone and thus currently dead.
If you have ever wondered what it’s like to kayak or row across the ocean here is a clip that give you a very good example of what to expect.
This is a short film about Bhavik’s several attempts to row across the Atlantic from Spain to Antigua without a motor or sail. The total distance was 6393km and took over 100 days to complete.
Who knew it wasn’t all rainbows and unicorns out there in the middle of the ocean?

I’m just amazed how much current there is along the equator and little there is along the West Coast of North America. Make sure you watch this in all its HD glory.
Alex Matthews just posted a great report on his first visit to the Golden Gates Sea Kayak Symposium which took place in San Francisco a couple of weekends ago.
Not quite the clearest directions but would you believe I have friends who would do a poorer job while out on a canoe trip? It’s true.
If you are like me there is a very good chance that you struggle to explain to your students the basics of how tides work.
To help solve the mystery, the gang from Minute Physics produced a very cool video that explains the basics so simply that that my 10 year-old could understand.
Also, if you have also got an extra minute why don’t you learn why some rocks on the shoreline are round while other rocks are flat and perfect for skipping across the water.
Who knew that gravity affected our lives so much? I didn’t.
I would say 90% of this video are bang-on for whitewater paddlers so I want to know when somebody is going to put together one for sea kayakers?
Here is my working list so far but feel free to add your suggestions in the comments.
“You can only roll 3 different ways?!”
“Pungo’s are not real kayaks.”
“I don’t care what colour my new drysuit and PFD are as long as they are black.”
“How do you like my beard?”
“The waves on the lake were at least 10 feet high.”
“Hold on, I left my Tilley hat in the car.”
To the store clerk, “Does this come in black?”
