‘Heavy Water’: Nathan Fletcher Air Drops from a Helicopter

The use of helicopters has become a norm in skiing, snowboarding, and mountain biking—but not so much in surfing. Big wave surfer Nathan Fletcher changed that when he aired out of a chopper onto a big wave. The stunt can be seen in Red Bull Media House’s latest surfing documentary Heavy Water, which follows not just Fletcher’s journey but also his prolific surfing family as a whole. The maverick hails from a lineage of surfing pioneers like his grandfather who pushed big wave surfing at Waimea Bay and his dad who experimented with tow-surfing with a jetski.

Following in their footsteps, Fletcher is making his own mark on the sport through his obsession with jumping off things. When he reached out to Red Bull to see if it was possible to incorporate a helicopter into his antics, they we’re thankfully on board with the stunt. The movie will be in theaters on June 13th.

While TGR may be known for our love of winter, there’s a special place in our heart for the island of Hawaii. We’ve been traveling to this tropical gem for nearly a decade, each time falling more in love with the island’s raw beauty and vibrant culture. "Kauai shares a similar kind of kindred spirit as Jackson Hole in its remoteness and its rawness," shares TGR co-founder Steve Jones.  RELATED: Andy Irons: Kissed By God During the filming of , we explored the area deeper—particularly from

Red Bull Cape Fear Confirmed for Monday

Red Bull Cape Fear has long been considered one of the most unnerving big wave competitions—and it's finally back. The venue at Tasmania’s Shipstern Bluff is not for the faint of heart with its beast of a wave, jagged cliff lines, and plethora of sea creatures—particularly great white sharks. Mind you, surfers out here have to manage a wave that has "steps," which are smaller waves inside of an already 30-foot monster.  RELATED: The Winning Rides from the WSL Big Wave
