Ross and Tom team with leading surf-forecaster and meteorologist Ben Matson to track and chase the largest storms in the Southern Ocean. They have their eye on surfing the biggest wave ever in the treacherous seas of Bass Strait called Dangerous Banks: it’s the ‘climbing-Everest’ of big wave surfing.
In a nail-biting adventure that takes the viewer from Tasmania to Western Australia, we see behind the scenes of big wave surfing, witness Ross and Tom come close to death in near-freezing waters and in a world-first, employ cutting-edge GPS technology to measure the forces on their bodies in a wipeout from a wave the size of a four story building.
In the end they finally get their chance to surf Dangerous Banks – a remote open-ocean break 35kms out to sea – and uncover its mystery on camera, to see just how big it really is.
Storm Surfers combines action and science using the latest innovations in High Definition technology and sound to put the viewer right in the drivers seat.
