In June 2014, a team of kayakers stepped aboard 34-foot trimaran, Lung-Ta, cast off from Orcas Island, WA and set off on the Sail 2 Surf project - a sailing and kayaking expedition with a focus on kayak surfing, adventure, and minimal-impact exploration. The team; captain Matthew Nelson, Nick Scoville, Chris Bensch and photographer Fredrik Marmsater sailed Lung-Ta to the north-eastern quadrant of Vancouver Island and explored and surfed sea kayaks on some of the biggest tidal rapids in the world.
