'Swell Chasers' on the Tele
Beginning last night - thank heavens for On Demand viewing - Tim Bonython's latest venture is playing on Foxtel.
'Swell Chasers' is a four-part series that extends Tim's penchant for following purple blobs on screen and then chasing them around the world.
The series is shot across Australia, Europe, the Pacific Islands, and the Americas - Hawaii, Mexico, and California. More than just incredible surfing, viewers also get a look at the process of tracking and chasing big waves: flawless planning, dogged determination, and an all-out willingness to take risks.
“From the moment you see the swell report, you have to plan for it,” says Tim with characteristic enthusiasm.
The process involves the coordination of planes, boats, jet skis, unruly oceans, and unpredictable surfers, and it wouldn't be possible without Tim’s global network of friends and surfers. Together, Tim and his team orchestrate the impossible.
Part One includes a trip to Shipsterns with Jughead, Kipp Caddy, and bodyboard legend Mike Stewart, while Part Two (playing next week) is shot at Nazare with amputee Ollie Dousett mixing it up with the locals.
Starts September 9, Thursdays at 7.30pm on FOX DOCOS  and watch On Demand
