Beau Miles PHD. Award winning filmmaker, average gardener, speaker, and mostly unfashionable.
On the recent 350k crossing of Bass Strait in a sea kayak (from mainland Australia to Tasmania) he was voted 3rd worst dressed in a party of 3. When 2 more expedition members turned up he was the worst of 5. Being offbeat and NQR speaks volumes about how Beau sees the world, believing wholeheartedly that we are all weird. Outdoor Education, and offbeat types of adventure, can exemplify the curious nature of people, natures, and is often overlooked.

The Green Paddle
Head west young man! A yellow kayak, boxes of stuff, a dressing gown, op-shot shirts, a brown car full of laminated maps. The film shows a genuinely naive young man leave the mainland of Australia to paddle through three island archipelagos off Australia's southern coast. He burns his tongue, paddles the largest swell of his life, and learns a thing or two about himself, and sea kayaking. This was Beau's first real attempt at filmmaking and screened in the U.S on the Outdoor Life Network.
