WildWater is a journey into the mind and soul of whitewater, into the places only river runners can go, places of discovery, solitude and risk. Its a visually stunning feast for the senses, and an expedition into new ideas. We set out to create a new kind of adventure film. One where image, sound and ideas trump all else. We wanted to communicate the essence of the thing we love - wildness and whitewater - and put its soul on film. A tall order. After thousands of hours of effort in around the world and in our studio, we are now editing the full version of a film we call WildWater, and we have achieved much of the goal. Borrowing Hollywood film tools and techniques, including RED digital cinema cameras and high speed film, WildWater brings not only new perspectives, but new images to kayaking and the world of adventure cinema.
Footage from Small World Adventure's Advanced Creeking clinic. We were out in search of boofs, but had so much rain we got to practice our big water creeking as well!
At SWA, we've been guiding kayaking trips in Ecuador since 1993. We film our guests throughout the week and give them a copy of the video to remind them of the great times they had with us. These highlights are from January 2012.
Rivers in order are: Upper Cosanga, Oyacachi, Lower Cosanga, Piatua and Upper Jondachi.
Kayaking Ecuador with Small World Adventures. SWA's "drysuit in the jungle diet plan", bug shuttle, and lots of boofs! Check out the shuttle vehilce at the end of the video. We've always wanted to hitch a ride on one of these, and as we were looking to load up at the take out, one happened along and we hitched a ride!
