Australian Big Wave Surfer Mark Mathews Defies Death Shooting Virtual Reality

SYDNEY, Sept. 22, 2014 — (PRNewswire) — In their 12 year quest to bring people as close as possible to the heart-stopping, adrenaline-pumped reality of Big Wave surfing, Mark Mathews and Producer Michael Lawrence have taken surf filming into another dimension.

Mark Mathews defies death while shooting World First #VirtualRealitySurf when skimboarder Brad Domke crashes through the wave.

In a World First, Mark Mathews, with longtime friend, collaborator, producer and owner of Garage Entertainment Michael Lawrence, have finally captured Virtual Reality surfing footage using Triggar 360 Technology, for usage in Virtual Reality headsets taking the viewer inside the real time action of surfing the barrel of a 15 foot wave.

Mark Mathews says, "I've been trying to show people what it is like in a huge barrel my entire career and Garage Entertainment and Triggar 360 Technology have allowed me to achieve that."

Michael Lawrence says, "This is the closest you are going to get to having a Big Wave surfing experience without paddling out yourself and taking your life in your hands."
