About the film “THIS IS THE SEA”, affectionately known as TITS

THIS IS THE SEA is the first ever action sea kayaking video and a world tour with some of the worlds’ best sea kayakers, by award-winning female kayaker Justine Curgenven. It is sea kayaking at its most exciting! Thrilling footage taken in big surf and roaring tidal races lets you feel you are in the boat with expert paddlers. Watch their eyes bulge and hear them scream in excitement as they meet the challenge of big water!

Hear personal insights from the world’s top sea paddlers including expedition paddler Chris Duff, Greenland Kayak Champion Malligiaq Padilla, and world leaders Nigel Foster and Nigel Dennis. Locations are as far afield as California, Georgia, Florida, Washington, Greenland, Japan, Wales and Russia.

Some highlights of what you will see:
– kayaks getting vertical at North Wales kayak races
– a novice paddler 650km kayak expedition along the eastern coast of Russia
– 7000km circumnavigation of Japan
– greenland rolling champions show you the tricks of the trade – above and underwater!
interviews with the world’s top paddlers and kayak designers

“Cackle TV has captured both the essence of sea kayaking and its world-wide variety. Justine’s camera takes you into the thick of the action and gives you the thrill of riding the waves”. – Chris Cunningham, Editor of Seakayaker magazine.

“At last a film that shows the true thrills, freedom and fun of sea kayaking. You can feel the spray, taste the salt in the air. You’ll actually feel like you’re in the cockpit with the kayaker.”Jason Smith, Editor of Canoe & Kayak UK magazine.

Having watched it twice in two days, all I can say is that it’s blown me away. It has something for everyone – from the ordinary paddler wanting to get an insight into paddling conditions in locations they may not normally paddle in, to the white water paddler looking for an insight to the sea paddler’s mentality and that’s not to forget the paddler looking for inspiration for a couple of major expeditions. – Mike Buckley, UK Sea Kayak Guidebook

“You will be talking about this film for weeks!” – Adrenalin Films
