In June 2012, Fiji Cloudbreak delivered one of the most memorable days of surfing
Volcom Fiji Pro and surf fans were eager to watch the world's top surfers up against the ultimate test.
The contestants were getting ready and fired up, but a decision to call off the event was made. This decision was far from consensual, and had a fair amount of discussion in the world of surfing.
Some surfers decided to paddle out and were joined by some big-wave pros. What they eventually discovered was the beautiful yet dangerous Cloudbreak, a wave that used to be off limits to surfers since it was discovered back in the 80's.
The documentar 'Thundercloud' tell the tale of one of the world’s most controversial and revered surfspots through to this epic day.
