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

Forget the rating
28 December 2010 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Catch the ride and forget about the rating. Unless you are completely against surfing. I myself have never surfed. My cousins have and I was only watching. But this movie (which I watched in 3-D) is bringing the waves into your face (literally)

Beautifully shot and with nice effects, this is all about the ride. But it is difficult to rate. Actually there shouldn't be a rating for a documentary like this. But how would you know it if makes sense to watch it ... that's why I put a number on it. Even for me, as a non-surfer this was exciting to watch. And there is other eye candy than waves (male and female), so there should be enough to entertain anyone who just lets loose and just wants to get a feeling of the Ultimate Wave ...
