Nice video, good production, likeable paddlers including director and sometimes on-camera star Justine C. Pleasant on the eyes. The video has highlights that include the Russian experience with a 650 km paddle (even meeting the Russian Army tank), and I liked meeting Malagiaq Padilla, who I have heard about often. I love the profiles of the paddlers, but would like more off water footage (I know, I am crazy for saying this) that would show the paddlers at home, what makes them tick, why they paddle---sort of the person behind the paddle, if you will. There are hints of this on the video, but not a ton of it. And for the ocean surf paddling, tension makes for great video (hence, it was fun to see the Russian tank arrest the paddlers). Maybe more of a description of what is going on and goals and objectives of each paddle on the film. The only segment that had this, to me, was the one in Russia, which was very intriguing.

I hope Justine C, who is launching This is the Sea III in March 2007, will consider some inland paddling footage for us non-ocean dwelling paddlers. Ever see a motor boat wake paddle? They can make for great video, too. A fun kayaking video, try This is the Sea I.

I recently purchased this video (This is the Sea), and although I did enjoy it, I thought it could be improved on. It was great to see a video that showed places and conditions that others have paddled. I particularly enjoyed the trip where the two woman and the young Russian take a three week coastal trip. But this is also where I thought there could have been improvement to the video. Such as maybe how they over came some of the logistical problems of their trip. More footage of camp life, packing and unpacking their kayaks. Perhaps some discussion on the equipment that they chose to use on their trip. I guess I was hoping for some helpful hints and suggestions, for extended trips in a kayak. Don't get me wrong, this video was by far the best that I have come to watch as compared to the " how to stuff". I even ordered the "This is the Sea Two" video. I enjoyed it for the entertainment value. For something a little different form the other videos, I would suggest watching this DVD.

Truly amazing! Beautiful scenery with paddlers doing things many people would not believe. There are some inspirational athletes in some awe-inspiring ocean. One of a kind. Loved it.

This video/DVD is a must have for Sea Kayakers. Awesome footage of paddling in surf and tidal rips! Many locations. Names you've heard before like Justine herself, Chris Duff, Maligiaq Padilla, Greg Stamer, both Nigels - and many more.

It's a great portrayal of sea kayaking as an active and exciting sport. This is entertainment - not training/lectures/lessons - but maybe even more instructive by example.

Just get it (I am not involved beyond being a happy customer).
