Dear Journalist:

On the North Shore of Oahu, waves several stories high curl out of the ocean, to tempt and to challenge. But during the winter months, these waves become truly epic. This is when the world’s top-ranked surfers gather to confront the ocean and compete for surfing’s coveted Triple Crown. On April 12 Image Entertainment will release Highwater, a testament to the surfing elite who climb the crests of these monstrous waves, shredding their way to the bottom, risking injury and worse. Highwater will be available for an SRP of $27.97 for the DVD and $29.97 for the Blu-ray™. Pre-book is March 15. 

The very best are featured here, surfing in the shadows of towering curls:   ten-time world champion Kelly Slater, three-time world champion Andy Irons, four-time Hawaiian Triple Crown winner Sunny Garcia and teenage phenomenon John John Florence. And all the danger, all the insanity, every jaw-dropping ride is captured by acclaimed film director Dana Brown (Step Into Liquid, Dust to Glory) – backed by the sounds of 2011 Grammy® winning band Switchfoot.

Now is your chance to experience big-wave surfing on a heroic level, where nothing is as beautiful as a successful ride – and nothing as terrifying as a wipe-out. Highwater takes you through pipelines and barrels and swells; with only one caveat: don’t try this at home!

A LIMITED NUMBER OF SCREENERS ARE AVAILABLE FOR REVIEW. WE CANNOT GUARANTEE ALL SCREENER REQUESTS WILL BE FULFILLED FOR THIS TITLE.
