March 1, 2018

Don’t miss the New Zealand Premiere of Take Every Wave: The Life of Laird Hamilton.

Rory Kennedy's exhilarating Sundance documentary will have its New Zealand premiere at the Raglan Old School Arts Centre on March 1st.

Push your limits. Change the game.

Filmmaker Rory Kennedy tracks the remarkable life and legendary career of big wave surfer Laird Hamilton. Much admired by the public, though often disdained or ignored by the surf industry itself, Laird is a unique sports icon—an athlete who has refused to compete professionally yet has dominated big wave surfing as no other figure in history has ever done.

Don’t miss this rip roaring and white-knuckle look at a life lived on the edge.
