This is just stunning. Beautiful work from the Eyeforce crew…
Mikala Jones, Marlon Gerber, Tai Graham and Desert Point future star Awan Hadi could have aimed for the usual sure bets when the Indian Ocean came alive during a big swell, but with such a massive population of surfers hungry to see some juice they knew crowds would be at worst-ever levels. Instead, they caught ferries to far-flung islands, the only way to get a jetski to the extremities in a hurry. After a few sleepless nights they finally had their dream set-up in place, and set off on a high-risk, high-reward kind of deal.
The wave you see in the film is not new, it’s been watched for hours and mainly left alone. Does it have a name? No. Has it been surfed? Kind of, just not in any state that resembled that in which the team tackled it.

The film has been produced as a passion project by Eyeforce. Its a non commercial short film with no funding or sponsors being involved. It was a last minute call with Tai Graham what made us decide to hop on a plane from Amsterdam and capture this amazing trip.
