Swimming with Whales in Tonga!!!
We are now back from a month on the road filming with Kurt Miller (Cc’d) and the Make A Hero production team, and I want to share a few GoPro Hero 3 shots and screen grabs from the journey. After 20 years of running Warren Miller, this film is Kurt’s second Make a Hero documentary titled, The Current, which is about the healing power of the ocean and the everyday journey of blissful love post life altering injury. Our first segment was in Kauai where Bethany Hamilton, her husband Adam, Shawna and I had a week to rip waves, scuba dive, high five the skies, and generally soak in the aloha. Segment two was ~22 degrees south of the equator in the Kingdom of Tonga where we swam with whales in many of the same locations as the GoPro “Whale Fantasia” shoot (well done by the way) with Shawna and surf photographer Aaron Chang and his wife Erika.
It is looking like this film The Current is scheduled for an early March 2014 release. And to keep the great news flowing, our historic Journey to the South Pole The Push should be dropping mid summer 2014! Additionally, I am honored to say there are upcoming media projects in the works giving me the continued opportunity to showcase the powerful metaphor of the unlimited and enduring human spirit within us all. Thank you to each and every single one of you for doing what you do, and thank you for all your collective belief, support and love…
