This short, 15 minute surf film recently screened at the Telluride Mountainfilm Fest leaving viewers in shock & awe! The entire audience was ‘frothing’ from the craziness they were witnessing on film…top surfers catching “some of the biggest, most dangerous surf ever recorded, much of it captured with the super slow motion Phantom Camera.”
Last August, the surfing World Tour’s Billabong Pro Tahiti event at Teahupoo was cancelled when a major swell hit the area causing the government to call for a ‘Code Red’ closing the waters to all craft. This didn’t stop some of the world’s best riders to find a way into the dangerous waters and surf the monstrous, historic waves. The waves might not have been the biggest ever, but the energy and weight to them is unbelievable. I don’t know how nobody died from some of the crashes!
The filmmakers do an awesome job capturing this and the footage is both amazing and downright frightening, creating one of the best surf films I have seen!
This video is a must-see…
