Billabong announce the release of the trailer for big-wave surfing documentary, Vague à l’âme.
Directed by Vincent Kardasik & featuring Benjamin Sanchis, Shane Dorian, Jack Robinson, & Justin Becret, this film tells the full story of the blood, sweat, & tears behind what it takes to surf the heaviest waves on the planet.
“My goal was to show what was happening behind the scenes of those trips,” says Director Vincent Kardasik. “Why were these guys traveling the world to surf? Was it for passion, money, awards or ego? I want Vague à l’Ame to reflect that reality. It’s not a surf flick, but rather a way to capture both the incredible waves and the raw emotions on those adventures.”
The film follows Dorian, along with unsung maniacs like Benjamin Sanchis and Justin Becret surfing some of the wildest swells in recent memory at deadly spots like Nazaré, Jaws and Mullaghmore. Shot in cinematic 4K, Vague à l’Ame gives unparalleled insight into the dramatic world of elite, big wave surfing.
“The Irish leg of filming Vague à l’Ame is easily one of the best surf trips of my life,” says Shane Dorian about the adventure. “For the waves, for the people, for the country itself. It was magical.”
“We started and ended the film at Nazaré, Portugal,” continues Benjamin Sanchis. “It shows the biggest beating of my life and a near death experience, then the last session where I caught one of the heaviest waves I’ve ever ridden and was totally safe. That kind of sums the movie up really. The highs and lows, the camaraderie between surfers and the hard lessons learned alone.”
