Circling Samoa by Kayak Documentary Idea

by The ofFISHal Angler

I aim to become the first white man to circumnavigate Samoa solo in a kayak. The kayak is rigged with a series of waterproof HD cameras, all I need is a documentary crew.

The purpose of the project will be to raise money for charity, while undertaking a world first adventure. Along the journey - swimming with dolphins, camping on remote tropical beaches, battling the world's biggest fish and kayaking through dangerous currents and reefs.

I plan on attempting the journey in June 2013. This will provide enough time to undertake the proper planning and risk management processes. I have acquired the vessel, a Hobie Tandem Adventure Island kayak with a sail.

A possible charity is the Black Dog Institute in order to raise awareness of, and contribute to support services for people with depression or anxiety, particularly youth.

I am currently producing a trailer/demo in order to fine tune the camera gear. This will be an incredible adventure for all involved, and the potential audience for the final product is unlimited.

Sounds like a fantastic adventure! Would you mind providing a few more details? For example, when do you plan to take this trip? For what charity? What kind of help are you hoping for with a documentary crew? Do you have any photos or video clips you could share? Any other description for how you see a possible documentary playing out and where it might be shown?

Again, this sounds like an amazing opportunity -- for you AND a film crew.

Thanks for the documentary idea!
