AUSTRALIAN SURF MOVIE FESTIVAL PRESENTED BY VOLTE WETSUITS – MEGA TOUR, NEWS & DATES
Monday, 8 May 2017

Big wave surfing has evolved radically over the past 10 years, and the film showcased in this 13th edition of the ASMF presented by Volte Wetsuits is The Big Wave Project - a production that is everything Tim Bonython lives for when it comes to documenting surfing.

Tim’s relationship with this genre of our sport has grown more than any other and The Big Wave Project is about just that. It’s everything from where it came from to where it is now.

The production of THE BIG WAVE PROJECT has taken Tim around the planet to interview the world’s most renowned big wave surfers and to record the biggest and most death-defying waves. It’s a narrative that will scare viewers as much as it will exhilarate.

“The danger level increases as we attempt to climb a mountain of water where the peak keeps getting higher,” says Alex Gray, one of the film’s participants.

The progression of the skill level of big wave surfing collides with the best swell season in 30 years as the world's best and bravest paddle, and also tow, into some of the greatest waves ever documented. This includes what has been called "the biggest wave ever attempted” featuring Aaron Gold’s infamous massive paddle-in wave at Jaws, in Hawaii. 

THE BIG WAVE PROJECT also travels across Australia, Tahiti and finally to Europe's new frontier of Nazaré, in Portugal. Featured surfers include Jamie Mitchell, Aaron Gold, Mark Healey, Ryan Hipwood, Grant “Twiggy” Baker and Billy Kemper, with insights from Peter Mel, big wave icon Greg Noll, the legendary late Brock Little and many more . . .

THE BIG WAVE PROJECT is directed by Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) Award-winning cinematographer and multi-award winning surf film producer, Tim Bonython, who has had four decades of experience in filming and documenting surfing.
