We think kids have an enormous voice - and the power to change the world. So it only makes sense that we would take the local children of Tonga - to see one of the most amazing animals in their sea. By helping them meet the creatures they are tasked with protecting, we know we are creating the next generation of whale warriors. Even more poignant, the whales we swam with are the very same whales we defend in the Antarctic - and have been protected during their winter months in Tonga's whale sanctuary for the last several decades. Watch a day that changed lives - for the kids, the whales and the shepherds.
Special thanks to the Na'ia, Rob Barrell, and Sione Tupouniua for making this possible.

The first in a five part film series that carries you around the globe exploring our oceans for perfect surf.
Way of the Ocean: Australia, explores the connection between man and sea through a visual feast of poetic motion. Since it was first introduced in the early 1900's, surfing in Australia has become a mainstream pursuit and for this country devoted to the ocean lifestyle, it is more than a way of life. From the tropical paradise of the Great Barrier Reef down through the frigid Southern Ocean and up to the arid desert of the west, the film captures an intimate portrait of this unique land. Vibrant super 16mm and High Definition cameras bring to life the stunning visuals, set to a heart thumping original score. Welcome to the odyssey of your life. Welcome to Australia.
