In June of 2012, Fiji’s Cloudbreak delivered one of surfing’s most historical days.

A momentous swell rolled smack-bang into the middle of the contest window for one of professional surfing’s most anticipated events, the Volcom Fiji Pro, and surf fans salivated at the thought of the world’s top rated surfers being put to the ultimate test.

As many contestants prepared themselves to face down the fear of annihilation at the hands of the ocean at it's most awe-inspiring, a decision was eventually made to call off the event. It was a decision that divided the surfing world and cast further doubt over the professionalism of the sport.

A select few paddled out anyway, and joined by a host of big-wave surfing’s most dedicated performers, uncovered a new realm of bravado. A realm where immortality was not certain, but certainly tested and where Cloudbreak, a wave that had been off limits to the surfing public since its discovery in the early 80s, revealed herself as almost inexplicably frightening and simultaneously beautiful.

ThunderCloud” is the documentary that traces the history of one of the world’s most controversial and revered surfspots through to this epic day.
