This came out a while back but with Pete Cabrinha's recent triumph after riding a 70 FT. WAVE in the Billabong XXL Awards., it came to mind again.
More about the massive wave ride and award at:
We are talking about a bunch of local guys from Hawaii showing up in the Cinema in the movie "In God's Hands" to tow into some monsters.

The story line may be a bit out there but the cinemaphotography is nice. For guys that obsess about the ocean in, on and off the water why not make this a BlockBuster Night? Or pick it at a low price online for instance at Amazon.com at:

Comments In "In God's Hands," the stars are strong surfers in their own right. Patrick Shange Dorian is the number 2 ranked professional surfer in the world.
Shane, Mickey and Keoni travel the Pacific Ocean for a chance to surf. The story begins on a beach in the South Seas. From there, their adventures take them to Bali and Hawaii. When you surf the really big waves, the 40 foot surf - you put yourself In God's Hands.
