Narrated by Toni Collette, Storm Surfers is an epic, real-life adventure following two best friends on their quest to hunt down and ride the biggest and most dangerous waves in Australia. Aussie tow-surfing legend Ross Clarke-Jones and two-time world champion Tom Carroll enlist the help of surf forecaster Ben Matson and together they track and chase giant storms across the Great Southern Ocean.
Over one big-wave winter season in 2011 the team experience the brutal force of Mother Nature, score the waves of a lifetime and come close to death, before embarking on an expedition to surf a mythical wave that has never before been ridden. Seventy-five kilometres from land lies a secret reef known as Turtle Dove Shoal – and so begins a mission far beyond anything they have ever attempted in their lives…
An adventure-filled crowd-pleaser, Storm Surfers earned over $650,000 at the box office during its 2012 run across Australian cinemas, and took the number one limited release spot in August.
Storm Surfers has also screened to rave reviews at the Toronto International Film Festival, and was recently nominated for three AACTA Awards - including Best Feature Length Documentary, Best Cinematography in a Documentary and Best Editing in a Documentary.
