      This is really something worthwhile to see.  I've traveled over to Windsor, Ontario to catch this in the past as it came near Detroit.

      You're simply not going to catch these films on everyday cable channels.  Similar to the Banf Film festival, full of adventure and emotion.

      With 34 inspiring paddling films short-listed for the World Tour, including the ten festival category winners, audiences can expect to see stand-up paddle surfing, hairy whitewater action, sea kayakers exploring remote coastlines, headwaters canoe expeditions, international river travel films, motivating environmental documentaries, grueling kayak fishing battles and hilarious short films capturing the lighter side of paddling life.
