Film: Big Wave Guardians: First Responders of the Sea

Sunday, August 21 @ 7:30 PM

Hawaii’s North Shore is the world’s most dangerous seven-mile stretch of beach. Massive swells, life-and- death rescues, and “the best job in the world” – yet often the most hazardous one – is the compelling drama of Hawaii’s big wave guardians. As surfers push the limits and crowds increase, a small group of heroes have reinvented water safety on a parallel track to the rising dangers. Addicting thrills versus inherent peril – they are caught up in both. Surfing’s elite watermen risk their lives to save their friends while challenging a realm beyond.
