Matt Bromley, a big wave surfer from Kommetjie, has spent the last few years chasing waves around the globe, and now you’ll get to join him on his fascinating journey as you dive into his ‘Over the Edge’ film at Cafe Roux!
Behind every force is a fascinating story, and this one, which was released just last year, tells the tale of how Bromley became one of the best big wave surfers in the world, navigating between Hawaii, California, Indonesia, South Africa, and Ireland to find the biggest and most daring waves.
‘Over the Edge’ also follows his two-year journey expanding the boundaries of his mental and physical ability through his surfing.
After a horrific wipeout at Jaws (Pe’ahi) – the big wave spot on Maui in Hawaii – and some missed opportunities at Mavericks, this talented surfer manages to regain focus, establishing his full potential at the historic Nias swell by paddling one of the most prodigious waves of the year.
The film also covers the realities of travelling through a COVID-ravaged world, showcasing Bromley’s wife having a baby, all while he was in pursuit of that one bomb wave at Jaws.
And the rest? Well, we’ll leave that up to your imagination as you make your way over to Cafe Roux in the popular Noordhoek Farm Village below Chapman’s Peak.
As one of South Africa’s most loved restaurants, there’s no better place to witness Bromley searching for ocean giants than in this intimate setting.
