In the Season 3 premiere episode of Facing Waves, world-renowned stand up paddler Nikki Gregg takes viewers on an unforgettable journey through Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way; surfing huge waves, exploring remote inland lakes, and kite boarding spectacular coastlines. With over 1500 miles of uninterrupted coastline and endless possibilities for adventure, the Wild Atlantic Way is the world's longest defined coastal touring route, and one of the most enchanting and culturally rich destinations you'll ever visit. 

“The dramatic scenery and colorful personalities of Ireland provided an ideal platform for launching Season 3 of Facing Waves,” said award-winning filmmaker and Facing Waves Director, Kelsey Thompson. “Viewers can expect a lot more breathtaking adventure this Season, from paddling with icebergs and whales in Newfoundland, to whitewater paddling the big volume rapids of the Ottawa River, and stand up paddling the tropical waters of the U.S. Virgin Islands.”
