Video: Not Far From Home Featuring Erkki Punttila

Erkki Punttila really loves exploring new places by bike but is also constantly hearing the call of the sea. He recently decided to combine the best of both worlds and took some camera folk with him on an adventure ‘not far from home’ in Finland.

Erkki has a 40-year-old fishing boat with a 5.4-litre truck engine that was used to access a more remote location. With lots of wild sounds and inspiring visuals, I think you’re going to want to get wild after watching this!
