The real story of Jaws and the ordinary guys who ride it.
There’s no denying that Jaws or Peahi has become the epicentre of big wave surfing. Laird and co made it famous in the late 90s early 00’s when towing opened up what was previously though to be unrideable. Watching on was a whole generation of kids from Maui, who now have come of age and are making the wave their own – kids like Albee Layer, Kai Lenny and Billy Kemper. A group the movie synopsis describes as “An eclectic group of childhood friends that followed each other into the Jaws lineup as teenagers, and through peer pressure and rivalries, pushed each other to unprecedented performances.”
The Take Shelter produced flick follows this group as well as some of the best big wave surfers on the planet as they take on the famous El Niño swells of 2016.
