THE ULTIMATE WAVE TAHITI 3D

| posted on October 05, 2010


For the first time ever, in IMAX® 3D and other Giant Screen Theaters, join 9x World Champion Kelly Slater and Legendary Tahitian Waterman Raimana Van Bastolaer, as they journey through the unparalleled beauty of the Tahitian islands, on their quest to find their own Ultimate Wave. Raimana plays host to Kelly as we navigate the cosmos and an ocean storm in a search for the source and nature of a wave’s energy. Exploring mountainous Tahiti, we are thrust into the turbulent volcanic past of the island and its neighbors and discover the seagoing, wave-riding roots of the islanders themselves — a culture still rich in the music, dance and lore of the sea. Beneath the ocean, swimming with our surfers, we explore the stunning, fragile beauty of the reef habitat — a turbulent, wave-shaping interface that envelops the island and nurtures the ocean’s multitudes in motion — fish, dolphins, sharks and whales. Above the ocean we see the most spectacular surfing ever shown on the big screen, where Kelly and Raimana bring the viewer closer than ever before to what many claim is the heaviest wave in the world, Teahupoo.
