Incredible story and journey!

Simply put, the best kayak film I have seen to date. It isn't a paddle porn flick as there is a really important moral undertone throughout the movie, although you will not be disappointed with the images captured. Rush Sturges and Co. you outdid yourselves as the production quality, the story line, and execution are unmatched. I think a lot of folks will be surprised. Well worth the 10 bucks.

I have seen some negative reviews as to whether the team runs Niagara Falls or not, let me finish by saying that it is not what is or is not run in this film but instead how they approach their challenges and decision making throughout. This is a great film for those who are pushing the upper limits of what's possible or even for those just getting started.
