These are the surfers who defined a generation, who brought surfing to a mainstream audience, the rise of poster idols. Taylor Steele's 1992 movie Momentum paved the way for surf action movies for decades to come.
If you don't know who that crew are, think, Kelly Slater, Rob Machado, Taylor Knox, Ross Williams, Shane Dorian, Kalani Robb and more. The heralds of pro surfing royalty. Performance unrivalled.

Those intense highs, tensions and lows are all laid bare. The trailer's just been released (watch above) and it should raise more than a few salty eyebrows at what's to come. Go HERE for more.
