Insane Trailer for the Surfing Documentary THE BIG WAVE PROJECT
“The Danger Level increases as we attempt to climb a mountain of water where the peak keeps getting higher” - Alex Gray, Big Wave Surfer.
One thing you might not know about me is that I love the art and sport of surfing. I enjoy surfing whenever I get a chance, and I love watching other people surf, especially those insanely crazy dudes that big wave surf. Watching those guys surf waves 30 feet high or bigger just blows my mind, and the fact that they are able to survive after wiping out on those gigantic waves is incredible.
I've got a trailer here for an intense-looking documentary called The Big Wave Project, which focuses on the evolution of big-wave riding and the unique bond among those who go chasing after these waves for the ultimate adrenaline rush.
This doc gives us a fascinating look at what it takes to be a big wave surfer and what these guys are dealing with when they paddle out into the ocean to battle these monstrous waves. I also included a separate video worth watching that goes into details about surviving a big wave hold down.
A NEVER BEFORE SEEN RAW AND UNCENSORED JOURNEY INTO ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST EXCITING CHALLENGES - RIDING THE WORLD'S BIGGEST WAVES.
5-years in the making “The Big Wave Project” follows a tight-knit crew (A Band Of Brothers) of leading big wave surfers who are working together to attempt a personal goal that drills to core passion of surfing - Riding the World's Biggest Wave.
We hear candid personal, no-holes barred accounts as the real fear of death walks side by side with ultimate personal glory.
"The Big Wave Project” also documents the history of the how the sport has developed from humble origins when the original big wave surfers paddled with little or no support to outer reefs through modern tow-in surfing on almost unsurfable reef breaks to the latest challenge of returning to the simple art of unassisted paddling into 100-foot walls of water.
This progression collides with the best swell season in 30-years as the world's best paddle and tow into some of the greatest waves ever documented including whats has been titled "the biggest wave ever attempted”
This film will be touring as part of the Australian Surf Movie Festival in May and June 2017
More screenings around the world will be announced. I can't wait to watch this!
