Check out some amazing behind-the-scenes images from the making of the hugely ambitious Storm Surfers 3D...

Storm Surfers 3D sees Aussie tow-surfing legend Ross Clarke-Jones and two-time world champion Tom Carroll, embark on a mission to find the world's biggest waves. They find themselves surfing at Turtle Dove Shoal - a legendary, unsurfed breaker located 75km out to sea. The film was a massive technical and physical undertaking, as evidenced by the first part of our photostory below...
