Storm Surfers - New Zealand is the sequel to the highly successful Storm Surfers - Dangerous Banks.
This time big wave surfing legends Ross Clarke-Jones and two time world champion Tom Carroll will be hunting waves off the South Island of New Zealand.
They are aiming to test new GPS and impact technologies and to work up new designs of their boards with advanced wave testing. And of course there will be the usual antics.
They will attempt to tow-in to a 4,000 foot ski slope on their big-wave boards, search for dinosaurs in remote national parks and hunt a pig for a traditional Hangi feast.
Storm Surfers – Dangerous Banks Premiered in 2008 on Discovery Channel in Australia and across Asia. It was a huge success and has since gone on to sell in to Europe and North America. Storm Surfers examines the phenomenon of big waves, the science behind them, the adventure of chasing them and the surfers who ride them in conditions that could kill.
Filmed in stunning High Definition, Storm Surfers puts the viewer right on the board as Ross and Tom test the limits of physical endurance and master their fear in pursuit of the ultimate ride.
The Storm Surfers journey never ends. This site is the centre of the Storm Surfers universe and the place for alerts and plans for new missions and targets. It is also where you’ll get the latest videos and shots from every mission and blogs from Ross and Tom.
