Red Bull goes inside the gruelling Watermen competition, where athletes compete in an all-round ocean based event in Tahiti.
It’s made up of numerous individual races and is a mix of paddle-boarding, prone-racing and swimming. Each of the races are extremely tough and take a huge amount of mental and physical resilience to complete. We follow surfer Matt Poole as he attempts to win the contest for the first time.
Matt’s more at home riding out on waves than taking part in an event like this, but he’s determined to take home the first place prize. He knows he faces an almighty challenge, as he’s contending with four time champion Bruno Tauhiro. He has a huge amount of respect for his opponents, as a good number of them have spent their entire lives training to be pro watermen. We see Matt trying to make his mark and get ahead of the rest, but the challenge proves greater than he first realised. Will he be able to break away and take home the trophy? Watch the doc and find out.
