Being a surfer in the Pacific Northwest of the United States is far different than being a surfer on the sunny beaches of Southern California. Brutally cold winters and huge storms mean days and weeks out of the water. But when the savage elements come together the Oregon coast can magically transform into one of the best big-wave surf destinations in the world.
Family man and big wave surfer Eric Akiskalian is heading to Lincoln City for what he hopes will be a weekend of giant surf. What he gets instead is local drama in the form of surf comp promoter John Force. Will their decade-long rivalry ruin what could be the waves of his life? Follow Eric, his long-time friend Keith Galbraith and the locals as they take us through all the ups and downs of chasing down that next big swell in the wild, wild west.
