From the flawless barrels of North Point to the harrowing slab at The Box, Western Australia offers some of the best and most daunting waves in the world. After moving to California five years ago, West Oz native Yadin Nicol took us on a journey back to his rugged home breaks.
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. 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 Stormsis cold-water surf exploration at its finest.
