Waves & Whales
Alex De Saint races to Alaska against plastic
an epic DOCUMENTARY about human potential.
This is the story of Alex De Saint, a dutch all round extreme sportsman, former dj and outdoor junkie. He will race the R2AK, 790 cold water miles from Port Townsend, Washington, to Ketchikan, Alaska.
No motor, no support, on a SUP, with a chance of drowning, being run down by a freighter, or eaten by a grizzly bear.
There are squalls, killer whales, tidal currents that run upwards of 20 knots an hour, and some of the most beautiful scenery on earth, right in front of the biggest garbage patch in the world.
With over 5 trillion pieces of plastic currently littering the ocean and the plague of climate change, Alex wants to increase the awareness on planet conservation, racing to be the first man to have accomplished all the categories on ultra long distance races and the first man to have done the R2AK on an inflatable SUP.
Everything is impossible until it’s done.
