Groundswell: a small film about making a big stand
When Raincoast’s research vessel, Achiever, set sail with Patagonia and a world-famous team of surfers, including Canada’s top ranked surfer Pete Devries, we embarked on an adventure that allowed these high profile surfers to experience this amazing coast and its incredible wildlife.
The expedition and collaboration with accomplished filmmaker, Chris Malloy and Woodshed Films, has produced a remarkable 25-minute documentary entitled GROUNDSWELL. It chronicles not only a world-class surfing adventure, but also provides a cerebral and compelling examination of an issue that embodies a great many aspects of today’s environmental challenges and opportunities: our energy future, geopolitics, aboriginal rights, and more. Raincoast crew and local indigenous leaders drive the narrative.

Join the Groundswell of movement against the Northern Gateway Project and TAKE ACTION (2012) to help to keep our coast oil-free.
There are many ways to get involved and help take part in stopping the worlds largest supertankers and dirtiest oil traveling through unspoiled waters of coastal British Columbia.
Read all the news and updates regarding the the tour in the Groundswell News.
This project would not have been possible without help from an enormous number of people. Raincoast would like to thank the following groups who have gone above and beyond to not only make this campaign come together, but as well as to fight to keep this coast oil free.
