  • Big wave guardians are the first responders of the sea... From Academy Award Nominated MacGillivray Freeman Films, Big Wave Guardians is the new epic surf film that everyone will refer to as life-changing. It’s the most honest, behind-the-scenes look at how the lifeguard profession began, and where it is today. These are the dramatic stories of Hawaii’s big wave guardians, some of the world’s best athletes, first responders, and surfers, who risk their lives in the world’s most dangerous waves while deploying innovative water safety techniques previously unimagined. Hawaii’s North Shore is the world’s most dangerous 7-mile stretch of beach. Massive swells, life-and-death rescues, and “the best job in the world” - yet often the most hazardous one – is the compelling drama of Hawaii’s big wave guardians. As surfers push the limits and crowds increase, a small group of heroes have reinvented water safety on a parallel track to the rising dangers. Addicting thrills vs. inherent peril – they are caught up in both. Surfing’s elite watermen risk their lives to save their friends while challenging a realm beyond. The Art of Living Well series features inspiring films, speakers, and interactive discussions exploring ways of cultivating serenity, meaning, and a deeper connection to one’s self and the world.
