Rip Curl’s “The Searchers” surfers and filmmakers tackle the Seven Ghosts tidal bore waves, riding big pipelines made when the river and sea collide.

The newest crop of adventure filmmakers aren’t just creating the best footage of amazing athletes doing their thing, they are pushing the limits of the sports they film. Rip Curl sent their “The Searchers” film crew and surfers to a legendary tidal bore in Teluk Meranti, Sumatra to attempt what hasn’t been done before: surfing river-made tubes.
