What a ride, 8 June 2010
Author: aaronrourke from Australia

You don't have to be a surfing fan to enjoy this wonderful IMAX film, which beautifully shows the sites (above and below) of the gorgeous Teahupo'o beaches of Tahiti. Nine-time world champion Kelly Slater and local legend Raimana Van Bastolaer lead you on an incredible journey searching for the ultimate wave. Through the magic of IMAX 3D, you experience these events as up-close as possible, making for first-class, big-screen entertainment. Your view bobs above-and-below sea level, the sea-spray covers your glasses, and you see just how close the surfers get to those very brave cameramen. As well as seeing some stunning 3D surfing footage, you are taken on a trip through the local marine life, and a vertigo-inducing look over the islands and ocean. You also get some lovely beach babes thrown in for good measure. Along with the terrific SPACE STATION 3D, this is a great example of IMAX 3D, showing how much you can be immersed in a particular subject through this superior technology.
