Bud's Summer Ocean Adventure Series: Dramatic stories of Hawaii’s big wave guardians, some of the world’s best athletes, first responders and surfers

Hawaii’s North Shore is the world’s most dangerous 7-mile stretch of beach. Massive swells, life-and-death rescues, and “the best job in the world” – yet often the most hazardous one – is the compelling drama of Hawaii’s big wave guardians. As surfers push the limits and crowds increase, a small group of heroes have reinvented water safety on a parallel track to the rising dangers. Addicting thrills VS inherent peril – they are caught up in both. Surfing’s elite watermen risk their lives to save their friends while challenging a realm beyond. From Academy Award-nominated MacGillivray Freeman Films, Big Wave Guardians, is the new epic surf film that ocen lovers will refer to as life-changing. It’s the most honest, behind the scenes look at how the lifeguard profession began, and where it is today.
