May 27, 2008 – 6:57 pm

Eight-time world champion Kelly Slater will star in the upcoming 3D documentary film, Ultimate Wave 3D. Directed by Stephen Low, the film follows scientists and surfers as they seek to better understand and experience one of the planet’s most intriguing and dramatic phenomena, the ocean wave. The film has an expected release to IMAX and other giant screen theaters in Fall 2009. Slater will be at the forefront of the expedition to find and ride the ultimate wave:

This project will be incredible. My life surfing and traveling around the world is a full-time adventure and my hope is to have it translate into this film. We have some big challenges ahead of us with getting the shots we want and getting the cameras in the right place but we have some really good ideas, great locations, world-class equipment and a solid production team. The challenges are all part of the fun. I can’t wait to get started.
