Quiksilver Waterman to Present “STAND”

We are excited to announce that¬†Quiksilver Waterman along with the¬†Quiksilver Foundation have signed on as the presenting sponsor of STAND, a new film from b4apres Media in association with Dendrite Studios, that will take you into the heart of the largest temperate rainforest on the planet – the Great Bear in British Columbia, Canada. Hung on the skeleton of a good ol’ fashioned adventure undertaken by a group of surfers, the potential effects of introducing super tankers to these pristine waters will be articulated. As the crew moves through this remote region under their own power, the landscape will be unfurled one paddle stroke at a time and punctuated by the faces and fears of the First Nation people who call this garden of Eden their home. Not just an efficient mode of transport, a stand up paddleboard expedition will be symbolic of “standing up” to preserve this last bastion of rainforest. Captured in cinematic High Definition, the film will bring the Enbridge Pipeline debate into the the collective consciousness in a way that will have you fishing in your basement for that old fluorescent wetsuit.
