By Hand (2019)

Rated, N/R, Documentary, 68 Minutes

"In an attempt to escape comfort, reconnect to the natural world, and set a new bar for ocean adventure, twin brothers Casey and Ryan Higginbotham made a decision that would reshape their lives. On March 18, 2016, they embarked on a 2,200-mile paddle from Alaska to Mexico with 18-foot paddle boards. The brothers carried nothing more than two dry bags of gear each and a camera--no support boats, no paddles. Nothing like this had ever been done. Raised with a never-quit mentality, the arch rivals must set aside a past filled with intense clashes in an attempt to grow into a team. Motivated by a challenge of great proportion, BY HAND is a coming-of-age story exhibiting the mentorship found in the natural world, a testament to human potential, and an unspoken promise never to quit on your brother."
