When a swell of massive proportions arrived at Cloudbreak (aka Thundercloud Reef) on June 8th 2012, right in the middle of the World Tour event, only a handful of the world’s best wanted a piece of it. Fortunately, a selection of the world’s most talented big wave chasers had also turned up to the show, and for what turned out to be one of the most spectacular days in surfing history.

You may have seen pictures in the magazines about this day, you may have read stories on the internet about it, THUNDERCLOUD is the full story in motion picture….. going deeper than you think!

With interviews and accounts from the world’s best surfers, that challenged themselves in the South Pacific Ocean that day and survived! We are shining a light on the dark history of the area, re-enacting the murder of King Ratu Imanueli, that lead to the island of Tavarua being handed over to the opposing tribe as a peace offering and how that would effect course of surfing history for years to come, as USA investors sought to create an exclusive surf resort in the area.

We hear from Tavarua Island’s Jon Roseman, the Attorney General of Fiji and the man that lobbied the government to change the decree in 2010, Ian Muller, leading to the liberation of the exclusive wave rights in Fiji.

As Thundercloud Reef was open for the world to enjoy, we recount the awesome swells of 2010 & 2011……. And of course, all the drama and action of the WCT event and subsequent free surfing session that re-wrote the rule book and set the bar for paddle surfing into the future.

All this and more in a 60+ minute documentary called THUNDERCLOUD.
