The Full Story: This photo went onto become the cover shot for the award-winning 2014 feature documentary The Cradle of Storms, co-directed by Bryce Lowe-White and Ben Weiland. The groundbreaking film features pro surfers Alex Gray, Josh Mulcoy, and Peter Devries exploring the Aleutian Islands and proved Weiland’s hypothesis that some of the best waves on earth exist in the coldest and most distant places.
