“The Big Wave Project” also documents the history of the how the sport has developed from humble origins when the original big wave surfers paddled with little or no support to outer reefs through modern tow-in surfing on almost unsurfable reef breaks to the latest challenge of returning to the simple art of unassisted paddling into 100-foot walls of water.
