Top Big Wave Surfers to Star at the amaysim Australian Surf Movie Festival

For the first time in 3 years, the amaysim Australian Surf Movie Festival will return to venues across Australia, featuring 5 jaw-dropping films that capture the world’s best big wave surfers battling the biggest waves on the planet.

The films feature an array of the world’s best big wave riders, including: Kai Lenny, Rodrigo Koxa, Matahi Drollet, Ross Clarke-Jones, Dan Corbett, Bradley Norris, Henry Davies, Shane Ackerman, Jake Osman and many more.

Renowned surf cinematographer Tim Bonython has spent the last 4 years chasing massive swell events for this year’s festival. It is an adventure that has taken him around the globe.

The footage he has collected records some of the most ground-breaking scenes in recent big wave surfing memory. These include pioneering big wave surfer Kai Lenny riding the futuristic foil surfboard in gigantic surf at Jaws, and fellow big wave rider Rodrigo Koxa breaking the world record for the biggest wave ever ridden.

“To see these big wave gladiators charging down monster waves is just the most exciting thing,” said Tim, who is not only the films’ main cinematographer, but also the founder of the event.

The first film features big wave surfers at Nazaré in Portugal, the second, at Mullaghmore in Ireland; the third, at Teahupo’o in Tahiti; the fourth, at The Right in Western Australia; the fifth, at Cloudbreak in Fiji. Together these five films make up the 14th Edition of the festival.

In these ambiguous times, the festival promises to bring audiences to the edge of their seats—and within the world’s wildest waves—injecting viewers with a much needed dose of awe and adrenaline. It’s what Tim’s done for decades, and with a stellar cast of hardcore chargers and spine-tingling swells, this year’s festival might just be the best one yet.

All films featured are directed by Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) Award-winning cinematographer and multi-award winning surf film producer Tim Bonython, who has over four decades of experience filming and documenting surfing.
