Film Description: 


Director: Rob Bruce

In Distance Between Dreams, the most historic year in big wave surfing comes to life through the eyes of iconic surfer Ian Walsh, as he sets mind and body in motion to redefine the upper limits of what’s considered ‘rideable.' With massive El Niño powered swells building across the Pacific, Ian, Shaun, D.K. and Luke Walsh band together in a way that only brothers can to progress surfing to unimaginable heights. Big wave surfing’s transition from jet ski assists to paddling in raises the stakes, putting Walsh’s intense physical and mental training, the latest technology, swell modeling, and safety team, his brothers, to the ultimate test. Surfers John John Florence, Greg Long, Shane Dorian and more link up with Walsh as he rides an emotional rollercoaster through this momentous winter. The second feature in Red Bull Media House’s The Unrideables franchise, Distance Between Dreams invites viewers right into the heart of the action with first person perspective, state-of-the-art cinematography, and captivating sound. Through unprecedented access, prepare to truly experience Walsh’s quest to survive and thrive in one of the most hostile environments on earth.
