A surfing film about big wave surfers riding 50 foot waves in Hawaii
This is best viewed on a big screen with good sound to really get the conditions under which the film was made. Mostly features legendary surfers and their accounts on the condition black, a phenomenon in Hawaii where the biggest waves in the world form in the ocean off Hawaii. Features Imax footage of the Imax film made from this event. That footage is what makes it watchable. Also has a whole surfing attitude touch to the entire production.
Basically it starts with a regularly organized surfing contest which has to be canceled due to high waves. A few "rebell" surfers disregard the warnings and head out the sea risking their lives to surf the waves of a lifetimes. Using a new techniques where the are towed by jetski's to get on top of the big waves. Many sequences have the IMAX footage which is shot by cameramen from helicopters above the surfers. Cool stuff
