Imagine lying on a paddleboard for months on end, slowly slogging 2,200 miles. These brothers just did.
Released last week, the teaser for the upcoming feature film “By Hand” looks promising. And as an adventure goes, their undertaking looks straight-up brutal.
The publisher describes the upcoming films as follows:
“‘By Hand’ is a feature-length documentary adventure film. In an attempt to escape comfort, reconnect to the natural world and set a new bar for ocean adventure, twin brothers Casey and Ryan Higginbotham made a decision that would reshape their lives. On March 18, 2016 they embarked on a 2,200-mile paddle from Alaska to Mexico with 18-foot paddleboards. The brothers carried nothing more than two dry bags of gear each and a camera. No support boats, no paddles, nothing similar to gauge off. Nothing like this has ever been done.”
There are few details about when the full film will be released online. We’ll keep our eyes open and update with more information soon.
