About the Event

Movie Trailer HERE 

This exhilarating doco follows a Scottish surf champion who has a dream to ride the biggest, most dangerous cold-water waves in the world. But here’s the thing; he’s only 12.

In this amazing film, we meet 12-year-old Ben Larg, who took up surfing as a way to deal with the bullying he experienced. But the sport he loves only serves to make him even more of an outsider in the Scottish island community of Tiree.

Undaunted, he trains for the ultimate challenge; to surf the biggest and most dangerous cold-water waves in the world off the coast of Mullaghmore, Ireland. His parents are worried about the danger, but Ben is determined to test his limits. Will the months of intense training pay off? Or will he wipe out in the punishing surf, risking injury or worse? An incredible true story about finding a passion and through it finding courage, friendship and self-awareness.

Excellent family film. Just an excellent film.
