“The Danger Level increases as we attempt to climb a mountain of water where the peak keeps getting higher” – Alex Gray, Big Wave Surfer.

We have a trailer here for an intense-looking documentary called The Big Wave Project, which focuses on the evolution of big-wave riding and the unique bond among those who go chasing after these waves for the ultimate adrenaline rush.

This doc gives us a fascinating look at what it takes to be a big wave surfer and what these guys are dealing with when they paddle out into the ocean to battle these monstrous waves. Jinne!

A NEVER BEFORE SEEN RAW AND UNCENSORED JOURNEY INTO ONE OF THE WORLD’S MOST EXCITING CHALLENGES – RIDING THE WORLD’S BIGGEST WAVES.

5-years in the making “The Big Wave Project” follows a tight-knit crew (A Band Of Brothers) of leading big wave surfers who are working together to attempt a personal goal that drills to core passion of surfing – Riding the World’s Biggest Wave.

We hear candid personal, no-holes barred accounts as the real fear of death walks side by side with ultimate personal glory.

“The Big Wave Project” also documents the history of the how the sport has developed from humble origins when the original big wave surfers paddled with little or no support to outer reefs through modern tow-in surfing on almost unsurfable reef breaks to the latest challenge of returning to the simple art of unassisted paddling into 100-foot walls of water.

This progression collides with the best swell season in 30-years as the world’s best paddle and tow into some of the greatest waves ever documented including whats has been titled “the biggest wave ever attempted”

This film will be touring as part of the Australian Surf Movie Festival in May and June 2017
More screenings around the world will be announced.
