Storm Surfers: The Movie
Storm Surfers The Movie isn’t really a movie, it’s more a personal surf documentary. By personal I mean that along with epic wave action, you also get to see parts of the personal lives and life long friendship between Australian surfing greats Tom Carroll and Ross Clarke-Jones. Now approaching 50 these veterans do irritate each other, but that’s just a human quality, but when they hit the water they are solid. They overcome fears of being too old, of having family to go home to, and focus their energy on finding some of the biggest waves there are.
With miniature cameras on their boards and camera on the end of poles that they hold whilst surfing, Carrol and Jones make sure we are in the thick of the action, and with dedicated Meteorologist and friend Ben Matson helping them decide where to go, the action is plenty.
Of course with big waves comes risks, and Storm Surfers doesn’t shy away from showing the dangers inherent with this sport.
Storm Surfers The Movies shows some awesome surfing action, but it also shows that you’re never too old to live your dream.
PG Coarse language.
