Ground Swell: The Other Side of Fear (CTC) at Margaret River HEART

Wednesday, 26th April 2023 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm


Ground Swell: The Other Side of Fear (CTC) is a film by Paul Taublieb.

The logical thing, the sane thing, is to stay on land. But they paddle out. Why do these big wave surfers risk their lives to ride these mountain-sized waves?

The answer is overcoming fear. “Ground Swell: The Other Side of Fear” is an in-depth look at the 2021-22 big wave season through the eyes of Nic Von Rupp, Kai Lenny, Matt Bromley, Torrey Meister and pioneering female surfer Bianca Valenti, along with special appearance by Vini dos Santos and maybe the 100-foot wave.

They all pushed past their fear and find out what is on the other side as they tackle monstrous waves in locations from Nazare in Portugal, Jaws and Pipeline in Hawaii and Mavericks in Northern California. (Narrated by Josh Brolin). Run time: 81 minutes.

This is a licensed event – children under the age of 18 years must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Doors to the venue and the bar open at 6.30pm and the film commences at 7pm at Margaret River HEART.
