Facing Monsters is about surfing, but it would feel strange to label it a surf film. You might recall our feature back in April, which detailed how surfing slabs saved Kerby Brown’s life. Indeed, this is about more than whipping into chubby waves over naked reef. Its official description is as follows: 

Facing Monsters digs deep into the psyche of enigmatic West Australian ‘slab wave’ surfer Kerby Brown, a man whose connection with the ocean runs as deep as his love for his family. This film is far more than just a surfing story. It’s an unapologetic musing into the essence of Kerby and his family as we join them on his quest to ride a ferocious slab wave in the deep Southern Ocean that no one on the planet has surfed before. It’s a film about fear, addictions, and family bonds as we explore what drives Kerby, what anchors him and why he’s obsessed with pitting himself against one of nature’s most intimidating forces.

If you haven’t gotten your workout in today, have a look at the new theatrical trailer above to pump your heart and moisten your temples. In the US? Get out and see the full film on the big screen. There’s a full list of showings, here, as the film is playing everywhere from San Diego to Utah to Tennessee.
