The film plunges audiences into the stunning beauty of an island paradise on a quest to find the perfect wave-riding experience. Ten-time world surfing champion Kelly Slater and Tahitian surfer Raimana Van Bastolaer and a group of friends seek out the best waves breaking on the reef at Tahiti’s famed surf site Teahupo’o. As their quest unfolds, the audience is plunged beneath the surface of things, to explore the hidden forces at work shaping ocean waves and the islands that lie in their path.
The Ultimate Wave Tahiti is currently playing in IMAX, Giant Screen and other specialty theaters in 3D and 2D.
