Soundwave: Capturing The Sound Of Big Wave Surfing

A new experience of an extreme sport from purveyors of hip arts and culture, Red Bull.

Red Bull’s Soundwave is the first-ever audio recording of big wave surfing.

Attempting to capture the experience of riding fifty-foot waves, the Red Bull team wired up big wave surfers Ian WalshCarissa Moore, Carlos Burle and Maya Gabeira with sound and video devices at the Jaws deep water reef break in Maui, Hawaii.  The result – a comprehensive, first-hand look at one of the most death-defying, adrenaline-fuelled sports on earth.
