Matt Bromley, a globally respected and revered big wave surfer, will release his surf movie Over The Edge tomorrow on Tuesday, October 19.
The film, a 54-minute documentary, tells the tale of just how Bromley became one of the best and most passionate big wave surfers in the world. Bromley has been chasing big waves for many years, jumping between Hawaii, California, Indonesia, South Africa, and Ireland, all to find the biggest waves he can find and push himself over the edge to catch and ride these behemoths.
However, much of the movie focuses on Jaws, the big wave spot on Maui in Hawaii. According to Bromley Jaws is the pinnacle of big wave surfing, and it has also been the pinnacle of his big wave career.
Bromley, who was present at Sorake Beach on Nias Island in Indonesia when some of the biggest waves ever seen there exploded over the famous horseshoe-shaped reef mentioned further that the more physically prepared you are, the more confident you are.
The movie also covers the drama of travelling through a COVID-ravaged world, and Bromley’s wife having a baby, all while he was in pursuit of that one bomb wave at Jaws. The movie will be available on this link
