kayak documentary


Hi to anyone who will read this. Dont know much about it but I saw a documentary (sky sport)on some radical dudes who did a whole heap of rivers including aratiatia rapids, nevis bluff and a westcoast beach surfing masive waves. If I am correct, is the guy who was in charge of the vid named Ben Brown? and there was a South African guy too who was also amazing. Anyway, my question is, I wanted to get hold of the footage and watch it again for personal development for paddling. Is it for sale somewhere? or has someone got a copy i could buy? thank you. email me or txt on 027 2040773

The video you're thinking of is the Red Bull Roots Tour including kiwi kayakers Ben Brown, Jared Meehan and Greg Thomas, and South African Steve Fisher. They run Aratiatia (bottom 1/3), Maruia Falls, Styx (where Fisher escapes from a pin), surf at Greymouth, run the Fox, Arahura (x2), Perth, Nevis Bluff, Hollyford/Marian Creek, then Aratiatia whole run.
