YOU will have seen Talon Clemow work before even if you don’t recognise the name. His next one adds meat to the bones of his previous efforts and we are looking forward to a repeat of that day at Cloubbreak back in June 2012.

‘Thundercloud’ is a documentary about the events that transpired on and leading up to the 8th June 2012, when a storm of massive proportions sent a 50ft + swell straight towards the South Pacific archipelago of Fiji. It just so happened that the swell was scheduled to arrive right in the middle of an ASP World Tour event at Cloudbreak, Fiji and very few of the world’s best surfers were prepared for waves of that size.

A tight knit group of the world’s best big wave surfers were aware of the forecast swell and converged on the break that the ancient Fijians called Thundercloud Reef. ‘Thundercloud’ takes a brief look at the history of Cloudbreak, investigates the change of decree that lead to the reefs in the region becoming non-exclusive (meaning anyone could surf there) and hears the accounts of the best surfers in the world that chose to brave the conditions on June 8th 2012.
