Greenland Bound — A Paddler's Pilgrimage: What's your favorite clip?

At the 10th Reel Paddling Film Festival World Tour, Greenland Bound — A Paddler's Pilgrimage won best Sea Kayak film for 2015.

I can see why. It has won my heart and given me new paddling inspiration. If you haven't seen it yet, you may want to have a peek:

Greenland Bound - A Paddler's Pilgrimage from Ontario Sea Kayak Centre on Vimeo.

I've already watched it ten times today. It's such a wonderful story, beautifully shot and narrated.

The story follows James Manke and James Roberts as they travel to Qaqortaq, Greenland, to experience the culture and participate in the 2014 Greenland National Kayak Championships. They returned to Canada with gold medals, smiling faces, many happy memories and newfound friends.

Dubside is also featured.

Do you have a favorite scene or clip from the video? 

I certainly do. It's the rolling iceberg that tries to steal the scene from James Roberts as he's competing.

Fantastic! Enjoy!

You can also find more about their adventure on their Greenland Bound Facebook page - just Google it. And like their page.

Here's a Paddle Canada article congratulating them on their achievements:

Happy trails!
