Check out our choices for top adventure binge-watches to help bring the spirit of adventure into your home. These stories of conservation, community and death defying heights come from our ambassadors, friends and brands around the world.
1. Vitamin Sea
The award winning Vitamin Sea is a must watch for everyone during the covid-19 lockdown. This film is beautifully shot, full of raw emotion and documents achievement on an epic scale.
This film follows ocean advocate and activist Cal Major on her world record breaking expedition to stand up paddle board the length of Great Britain. In 2018, Cal began her journey at Land’s end, Britain’s most southerly point. Cal paddled for 20-40 miles per through gale force winds and dangerous tidal races, finally reaching the most northerly point of mainland Britain two months later.
Vitamin Sea is much more than just an adventure film, it focuses on the positive solutions to plastic pollution, including the importance of community, connection to nature and protecting our wellbeing through time outside.
For a limited time you can watch Vitamin Sea on Vimeo on demand here.
2. Break On Through
Currently available for free on Red Bull TV, Break on Through follows a young American climber on her quest to make history. In 2017, Margo completed her goal of being the first woman to climb 9+ with her incredible ascents of La Rambla in Spain and Biographie in France.
Routes graded 9+ are reserved for only the strongest and most skilful climbers, and these grades have long been out of reach for female climbers. Margo Hayes shattered the glass ceiling if climbing and this inspirational film documents that record breaking journey.
