For those who fear the ripcurl yet understand how inspirational it must be to get up close and personal with the ocean, now’s your chance with nine-times world champion and the biggest name in surfing, Kelly Slater. This ‘dude of dudes’ is coming to Australia next to launch what may be the ultimate surf movie.  To get inside these waves is an experience familiar to only a handful of surfing’s best. Florida-born Kelly says, “Some of the best waves in the world are in Australia.” He’ll be bursting onto the IMAX screens nationally with an unrivalled, energetic look into the world’s most feared wave, Teahupoo in Ultimate Wave Tahiti. But hold on to your boardies – it’s a bumpy ride! (SW)
