A surfer is towed by jetski onto the tip of a rising wave, the camera pulls back and the wave begins to swell. As your eyes re-adjust to the change in scale, the camera pulls back further, and within seconds the wave has risen to a monstrous 70 ft – a thousand tons of moving liquid arching over the surfer’s head. Accelerating up to 55 mph, he flies through the arc of rushing water in a race to pull clear before it collapses upon him. This is the beginning of Billabong Odyssey, an epic journey that brought together the greatest surfers in the world with just one goal… to surf the biggest wave in history, and live.
Billabong Odyssey offers a breathtaking journey into the world of big-wave surfing. Forget everything you think you know about surf movies, this is a film that shatters pre-conceptions.
Garnering critical and commercial acclaim across the world, UK viewers finally have their chance to see this awe-inspiring production as Revolver Entertainment releases the film theatrically on 15th October 2004.
