On a late summer assignment, I had the opportunity to accompany the Boundless television crew while they filmed part of an episode. For anyone who is unfamiliar with the show, it follows two adventure junkies Simon Donato & Paul Trebilcock (aka Turbo) on their endurance quests around the globe. Together they have competed in desert ultra marathons, expedition biking events, triathlons, an adventure race and stand up paddleboarding competitions. This particular challenge would see them and their friend Nick Falbo cross Lake Ontario on stand paddle boards or “SUP”, as the sporting activity is often referred to as. Starting at a marina in Niagara-on-the-Lake and finishing at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club, the group attempted to complete the full 50 km in one go. The footage captured by the crew was included in a recent episode of television show and the crossing was also in benefit of the Toronto Humane Society. This expedition must have been great conditioning since the duo went on to tackle an 11-day SUP competition in Holland.

The paddle provided plenty of action to shoot and it presented some interesting behind the scenes moments to capture. All-and-all, it was a great day on the water.
