Storm Surfers: we know these guys...

The Storm Surfers' mission is to use the science of storm forecasting to track and hunt the storm front that will produce the biggest swells in the world.

But they won’t go unless it’s 20 ft plus. New Zealand is the sequel to the highly successful "Storm Surfers - Dangerous Banks" and premieres soon on July 14th on Discovery Channel.

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.

Watch the trailer.
