Blackwater: The Story of a Place Called Teahupo'o

"Blackwater" is the story of Teahupoo, a humble Tahitian village and a coral reef wave made from equal parts beauty and terror.

The wave is undoubtedly one of surfing's most challenging and awe-inspiring waves, as Chris Malloy comments "That wave has changed surfing forever".

The movie features fantastic surfing and commentary from a who's who of surfing, people such as Vetea David, Manoa Drollet, Shane Dorian, Kelly Slater, Tom Carroll, Mark Occhilupo, Bruce and Andy Irons, Layne Beachley and the Hobgood brothers to name a few.

For the first time you can see and hear it all - the myths, the facts, the history, the stories, the consequences, and most of all, the unforgettable waves.

The music is top notch with artists such as Adam Freeland, Red Whyte, Butterfly Effect, Decoder Ring, Paul Kearney, Katalyst, Pre-Shrunk, Clotaire, Inked Factor, Nora Drenalin, Volatile, Not For You, Switchkicker, Strength in Numbers, Erther and Live, Love, Regret.

"Blackwater" contains loads of never-before-seen footage from over 25 of the world's best cameramen, exclusive interviews with over 50 great surfers, and just one big star - a surf location that's nothing short of unbelievable. uses cookies to ensure you get the best experience on our website.
