Just watching surfing icons such as Laird Hamilton and young Kai Lenny tackle the big waves on beaches such as Hawaii’s Jaws and Belharra in France is an intoxicating thrill. But riding the waves themselves is a spiritual experience for hordes of surfers the world over, and that way of life is chronicled beautifully here. From Malibu to the Basque Coast, this documentary follows some of the sport’s greats as they perform gravity-defying feats aboard ferocious waves that can crest to 80 feet, while providing insight into what lures so many to the sea.
