Movie Details

Synopsis From Greg Huglin films comes a one of a kind, visually stunning surfing film. Shot entirely on film in epic Hawaiian conditions this video will leave you booking the next flight out to your favorite tropical paradise.

Shot entirely in 35mm film in perhaps the best place on the planet to be doing so, the footage in Hawaiian Watermen is nothing short of beautiful.

Hawaiian Watermen showcases some of the most talented surfers in the world tackling the most powerful surf in the world on the North Shore of Oahu. See smooth slow-motion footage of the deepest, most critical tube rides imaginable at Pipeline during the Pipe Master's and Backdoor Shootout contests.

And for perhaps the largest rideable wave in the world HW takes you to Peahi (a.k.a. Jaws) on the island of Maui. Experience the new breed of surfer, the tow-in surfer, challenging 40 to 50 foot monsters, an act that seems to fly in the face of common sense. But that makes it all the more entertaining.

Speaking of defying common sense, you'll cringe at the boogie-boarding at gigantic Waimea shorebreak.

Hawaiian Watermen tops it all off with a bit of soulful longboarding and tandem surfing, but probably the most spectacular of all is the ultra slow-motion water footage. You'll be mesmerized by every drop of water peeling over your head at 300 frames per second. Needless to say, this is not your typical surfing film.
