The Universal Sports television network, which is owned and operated by NBC, has declared April Adventure Month, and has scheduled a whole host of great outdoor oriented programing to celebrate. If you’re luck enough to live in a market that gets the channel, you’ll have plenty of great television to enjoy over the next few weeks.
Amongst the great shows that you can enjoy throughout the month of April are a series of documentaries from our friend Jon Bowermaster. In fact, the entire collection of Jon’s Oceans 8 project, as well as his Terra Antarctica film, will be available for viewing. Oceans 8 chronicles eight amazing sea kayaking expeditions to a number of unique and diverse locations around the globe, while Terra Antarctica returns Bowermaster and his team to Antarctica, a place he knows very well, where they explored the effects of climate change on the Antarctic Peninsula. Each of these films is excellent, and will give you a great perspective on the environments they explore, from one of the best vantage points possible – the seat of sea kayak.
On a personal note, if you haven’t seen Jon’s films, you really should grab this opportunity to do so. They are extremely well done, inspiring, and informative. I have all of the DVD’s, and thoroughly enjoyed the all of them. They’ll make you want to buy a kayak of your own!
