    • Synopsis
    • An in-depth uncompromising portrait of a living surf legend, Take Every Wave examines the life of an extraordinary individual fuelled by fear, ambition and challenge. This rip-roaring account of his life gives us a rare and intimate glimpse into what drives an elite athlete to follow the rules or break them; revealing how he changed the face of the sport, the legacy he built, and the price an athlete pays for greatness.
       
      At the heart, this biopic explores one man’s love for the ocean, and by combining breathtaking new footage with extraordinary archives spanning over four decades from California, Hawaii, Tahiti to Europe, the team has managed to capture the essence of Laird Hamilton’s dynamism and reveal his journey to push the limits of surfing over the edge.
