New York (April 25, 2012) – Today marks the premiere of “Code Red” on YouTube’s action sports channel Network A. “Code Red” documents the historic events of August 27, 2011, when the Billabong Pro Tahiti was called off due to surf in excess of 20 feet detonating on the shallow reef at the heaviest wave in the world: Teahupo’o (pronounced Choh-poh). Told through the eyes of relative new-comer Laurie Towner and the veteran Dylan Longbottom, the film details how they and a handful of the world’s best big-wave chargers eluded the government’s “Code Red” advisory to tackle some of the largest barreling waves ever surfed.

On August 27, 2011, the Billabong Pro Tahiti event on surfing’s World Tour was placed on hold due to a massive swell bearing down on the famed big-wave spot, Teahupoo. With forecasts calling for unprecedented surf, some of the greatest surfers in the world descended on the island to be in the water, despite a “Code Red” called by the Tahitian Coast Guard, which sought to keep everyone on shore. See the historic day through the eyes of two surfers — the young gun Laurie Towner and the veteran Dylan Longbottom — as they catch some of the biggest, most dangerous surf ever recorded, much of it captured with the super slow motion Phantom Camera for never-before-seen imagery.
