Could you ever imagine riding in the barrel of a wave?
For non-surfers, that may be hard to do….until now.
A new surf movie coming out this week takes 3-d to a whole new level.
“I am here on sunset beach and I am suppose to be interviewing two world class surfers Tom carroll and ross clarke-jones..but I think they are surfing so I am going out to talk to them.”
Tom Carroll is a two time world surfing champion and Ross Clarke-Jones is known for charging waves higher than a 10 story building, but both have never done a movie in 3-d before
“Ya know tieing things on to your board and holding on to things coming down waves..so it was actually a bit tricky at times,” said Tom Carroll.
Both men have each spent more than 40 decades in the water and even though the spirt of surfing is the same, the equipment and gear has changed light-years.
“This is the first movie filmed like this and not converted we had go-pro 3-d camera and we had them on extension arms,” said Ross Clarke-Jones, big wave surfer.
“I was stunned at some of the views we get, we got a view from the jetski, from the board and from the person…and in the cinema you really get a feel of the action,” said Carroll.
3-D Go-Pro cameras allowed the film crew to get closer than ever before to the surfers…actually riding in the barrel of the wave.
“I Think the most rewarding things is coming from people who don’t surf who come out of there say thank you i’ve gone surfing..and I don’t think any movie or director has done that,” stated Clarke-Jones.
The movie opens this Friday night at both the Ward theaters on Oahu and Kaahumanu theaters on Maui.
