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.
