A unique and insightful glimpse about the life and experiences of big wave surfers and their "rides". Incredible photography and absolutely beautiful footage on the water. We liked the concept of sepia tone of the interviews vs vibrant color of the action filming. The interviews give a supporting perspective of why these guys do what they do. High-def big screen candy for 84 minutes!
