Storm Surfers follows two-time world champion Tom Carroll and big wave tow-in pioneer Ross Clarke-Jones as they hunt down and ride the world’s biggest waves.
Together, Ross and Tom have conquered big waves off the tip of South Africa, ridden a typhoon bearing down on the coast of Japan and surfed monster waves in the Southern Ocean that smash into the most inhospitable areas of Tasmania and New Zealand.
Hunting waves the size of a four-storey building involves strategy, timing, preparation and tracking the largest oceanic storms in the world. That’s where meteorologist and surf forecaster Ben Matson comes in. Using the latest storm prediction technology, he helps Ross and Tom track swells and time their arrival to a matter of hours in a mad, high-stakes race against time and the elements to conquer and film massive waves.
