Aussie surfing heroes Ross Clarke-Jones and Tom Carroll use storm-tracking technology to hunt the deadliest waves they can find in the remote wilds of Fiordland, New Zealand.

Big wave pioneer Clarke-Jones and two-time world champion Carroll have spent the last few years scouring the ends of the earth to ride the most dangerous waves they can find. Now they’re taking the search to New Zealand and the freezing temperatures, rugged terrain and inhospitable conditions of Fiordland.

But hunting waves the size of a 4-storey building involves strategy, timing, preparation and tracking the largest oceanic storms in the world. That’s where meteorologist and surf forecaster Ben Matson comes in. Using the latest storm prediction technology, he helps Ross and Tom to track swells and to time their arrival to a matter of hours in a mad, high-stakes race against time and the elements.

Their adventure into the unknown of Fiordland sees them joined by a local big wave surfer as they overcome almost impossible terrain, deal with the harshest conditions of their careers, have Mother Nature test their tracking skills to the limits, and come face to face with an Antarctic storm.

Featuring another world first by surfing the never-before-surfed Barnes Bay on the remote west coast, and an epic mission involving the Queenstown team taking six jet skis down a river in the remote Fiordlands before breaking through a dangerous sandbar and out on to a cracking 12-15 foot wave.
