Tide Lines began as a light-hearted chronicle of three young men living their dream to circumnavigate the world by sailboat, to seek out remote beaches and to surf the perfect wave. But, as the kilometers sped beneath their keel and the story developed, it grew in the telling and became a personal voyage of exploration and awakening that would forever change their worldview.
Around the world, in mid-ocean and washing up on what should have been pristine remote beaches, the crew brothers Bryson and Ryan Robertson and friend Hugh Patterson discovered the detritus of the Age of Plastics.
Shocked by the sheer magnitude of the quantity of garbage and its effect on ecosystems, wildlife, and settlements dependent on the ocean, the voyagers realized they could not tell their story without including their discovery and its personal impact.
The exercise grew into a global research and outreach expedition to protect the world’s ocean, blogged and chronicled as OceanGybe.
The Tide Lines festival version includes an exclusive soundtrack that features music from up and coming Island artists Current Swell, Jon & Roy, and Vince Vaccaro.
