Outdoor adventure is our passion,
storytelling is our purpose
This section of the business is solely produced by the founder, Roo Smith. Every video and photo below was planned, filmed, and edited by himself. Now, to fully understand Castlehouse you kind of need to understand him. He’s a rock climber, surfer, snowboarder, photographer, videographer, songwriter and musician who grew up on a small island off Washington State but spent a number of years living in Costa Rica, Wales and traveling through Europe, Asia and North Africa. Basically, he’s been around and has just a ton of outdoor experience. He’s a Wilderness First Responder, Swift-water Rescue trained, Avalanche Level 1 trained, a Stand Up Paddle-board instructor and a former lifeguard. Somehow, at only 22 years old, his resume reads like worn pages of an adventure novel. With all of his experiences and filmmaking expertise, he plans to continue sharing the stories of the people and companies who bring him hope, joy and adventure.
