Storyline

THE ULTIMATE WAVE TAHITI plunges audiences into the stunning beauty of an island paradise on a quest to find the perfect wave-riding experience. Nine-time world surfing champion Kelly Slater and Tahitian surfer Raimana Van Bastolaer and a group of friends seek out the best waves breaking on the reef at Tahiti's famed surf site Teahupo'o. As their quest unfolds, the audience is plunged beneath the surface of things, to explore the hidden forces at work shaping ocean waves and the islands that lie in their path. Amidst playful surfing action, we navigate the cosmos and an ocean storm in a search for the source and nature of a wave's energy. Exploring mountainous Tahiti, we are thrust into the turbulent volcanic past of the island and its neighbors and discover the seagoing, wave-riding roots of the islanders themselves -- a culture still rich in the music, dance and lore of the sea. Beneath the ocean, swimming with our surfers, we explore the stunning, fragile beauty of the reef habitat... Written by K2 Communications

Great Visual
27 April 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I took my 12-year old to watch this film in IMAX 3D over the weekend. Overall it was a good experience but if you are a surfing fan it helps greatly. I am not, and prefer to watch people running on the sandy ocean floor with a large stone in their hands, and the submarine view of corals and schools of fish.

The surfing part was well done but I had too much of it. Not being a fan I find the ethnic dancing, in 3D, and the non-surfing parts more interesting. Yeah, you do feel the splash of the waves on your face.

Overall it was good family entertainment for the weekend. The 3D effect does bring additional excitement to the 45-Minute session.
