The Big Swell

The Big Swell
51:29 | 2004

Categories: Documentary, Sports

Shot in HD and Super 16mm, THE BIG SWELL follows the life cycle of a massive winter swell from its birth in the heart of a violent storm in the North Pacific to its death throes as gigantic breaking waves at a notorious surf break in Northern California. Told through the words of renowned surfers and marine forecasters, this documentary is not only dramatic portrait of the people who make this phenomenon their passion (one that borders on obsession), but also a fascinating examination of how and why such powerful waves occur in nature—and what they are capable of.
