Heavy Water follows Big Wave Surfer, Nathan Fletcher, his development as a Big Wave surfer as well as his passion for the sport. Nathan, whose grandfather was one of the biggest surf pioneers of the north coast of Oahu, learned to surf at an early age. He and other surf legends like Andy and Bruce Irons give an insight into their personal experiences and describe the most iconic moments of the sport, which shapes today’s surfing adventure. Their surfing journeys are shared not only in their beautiful stories of challenging moments, but also demonstrate the power of water and the complexity of surfing. Heavy Water takes you behind the scenes of the surf culture, to the roots of the skate culture and its legendary Dogtown Crew. Nathan Fletcher visualizes this deeplying connection in the “Acid Bomb Drop” directly from the helicopter on to the wave.
In November the Cine Mar – Surf Movie Night will be on tour through the most beautiful cities in Europe, including 19 cities in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and in the Netherlands. The tour will highlight both year’s most outstanding surfing shots and documentaries.
