The Cradle of Storms extended trailer

Selected for entry to the KMF International Film Competition, 20-23 November 2014.

Every year, thousands of people visit Kendal Mountain Festival to see film-makers, adventurers and lecturers from around the world. Here on BMC TV, we’re showcasing a flavour of the films submitted.

Alex Gray, Josh Mulcoy, and Pete Devries went on a journey through the remote Aleutian Arc of Alaska, the birthplace of storm systems that send swell back to the rest of us in civilization. They braved heavy weather, flew on rickety prop planes, and ate seal meat en route to discovering one of the best cold-water slabs in the world.

The film follows the cold-water crew as they traverse the island on quads, tracking pulses of swell to remote bays and never before surfed points. Set against the stunning volcanic backdrop of the Aleutian Islands, The Cradle of Storms is cold-water surf exploration at its finest.
