The Cradle of Storms

The official trailer for the feature-length film about surf exploration in the Aleutian Arc

| posted on March 06, 2014

Alex Gray, Josh Mulcoy, and Pete Devries went on a journey through the remote Aleutian Arc of Alaska, the birthplace of storm systems that send swell back to the rest of us in civilization. They braved heavy weather, flew on rickety prop planes, and ate seal meat en route to discovering one of the best cold-water slabs in the world. You read the story of their journey in our April issue, now watch the full-length documentary about the expedition. The film follows the cold-water crew as they traverse the island on quads, tracking pulses of swell to remote bays and never before surfed points. Set against the stunning volcanic backdrop of the Aleutian Islands, The Cradle of Storms is cold-water surf exploration at its finest.

The Cradle of Storms is available now on iTunes.
