About the Film:

Part of the Honolulu Surf Film Festival 2017

Directed by Dan Norkunas. USA. 2017. 87 min. 
When winter swells collide with a chunk of reef off the north shore of Maui, massive waves up to 60 feet rise and crash to create the best big wave on earth. It’s called Pe‘ahi, or Jaws, and every year it attracts dozens of elite surfers from around the world. More and more, however, it’s a local crew of childhood friends that followed each other into the Jaws lineup as teenagers that steal the show. Through peer pressure and rivalries, they have pushed each other to unprecedented performances. Then came the El Niño of 2016, which promised to serve up the largest swells in big-wave history. Follow the crew for an inside look at a season rife with nerves, injury, triumph and friendship.
