THE OCEAN RIDER
Around the world in 220 days. Despite being in his landlocked homeland, the Swiss sailor Yvan Bourgnon dreams big. He embarks on a solo trip around the world in his cockpit-less catamaran. No protection against the elements, no crew, and 55,000 kilometres of open water ahead. On his journey, Bourgnon faces storms, pirates, and polluted seas. 25 min
Kai Lenny—kitesurfer, windsurfer, and big-wave, tow-in, and stand-up paddle surfer—is aptly described as a total waterman. The 25-year-old Hawaiian, who stepped on a surfboard for the first time at the age of five, is regarded as an exceptional talent. Like no other surfer out there, Lenny thrives on the water, feeling his way into the wind and waves, independent of the equipment. In Paradigm Lost, he shows us the ultimate watersports action in a variety of disciplines and in the best spots worldwide! 20 min
DOLPHIN MAN tells the story of legendary freediver, Jacques Mayol. The Frenchman set several freediving records and was the first to break the magical 100-meter threshold on a single breath in 1976. Yet, no matter how deep his bond with the sea and the dolphins, the celebrated hero bore an emptiness throughout his life that was just as profound. DOLPHIN MAN is the portrait of a restless soul who searched the ocean for what humankind denied him. 25 min

THE BIG WAVE PROJECT – A Band Of Brothers
The name „Nazaré“ makes all surfers’ hearts beat faster. The small fishing village on the Atlantic coast of Portugal has become synonymous with gargantuan mountains of water, massive waves that push the world’s big wave elite to its limits. When the tide is high in Nazaré and sets of Atlantic storms roll onto shore, only the best surfers dare to get in the water. We come aboard for a wild ride with Sebastian Steudtner, Garrett McNamara and Andrew Cotton. 7 min
AND THEN WE SWAM
They didn’t have a clue what they were about to do and they had no experience at all. But that wouldn’t stop rowing rookies Ben Stenning and James Adair from pursuing their dream: Crossing the Indian Ocean. When Ben and James rowed off, they were nervous, but still optimistic. At least the boat had the experience that her crew was lacking. Knowing no safety boat could reach them, should they ever get into trouble, the thought of the 3500 miles from Australia to Mauritius grew even more daunting. But James and Ben couldn’t resist the call of adventure. After 116 days on the ocean they finally approach Mauritius. That's when a gigantic wave hits their boat - they capsize five miles offshore... 35 min
