Kelly Slater Featured in The Ultimate Wave Tahiti 3D World Premiere in Los Angeles, February 12

Unique IMAX(R) theater film blending surfing and science sets first showing for California Science Center in Exposition Park

EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Jan. 21 — (PRNewswire) — Kelly Slater, nine-time world surfing champion, will be featured on the IMAX® theater screen for the first time at the Los Angeles area public premiere of The Ultimate Wave Tahiti 3D, presented by Suzuki, Feb. 12, 2010.  The unique film -- that blends surfing with ocean science -- will be showing at the California Science Center IMAX Theater in Exposition Park.

Directed by Stephen Low, The Ultimate Wave Tahiti 3D contains some of the most technically difficult and impressive giant screen footage ever recorded by the prolific filmmaker. Low has been responsible for more than a dozen giant screen films and his innovative approach to filmmaking has resulted in more than 50 awards worldwide. These include the Grierson Award for achievement in documentary film and the Kodak Vision Award for Lifetime Achievement, presented by the Giant Screen Cinema Association.

Low focuses on Slater as he teams with Tahitian surfer, Raimana Van Bastolaer, in the pristine waters between Tahiti's shores and the famed Teahupo'o reef break that creates treacherous wave formations known by surfers around the globe.  The two athletes provide the link to the educational aspects of the film, helping viewers understand the critical relationships between man and ocean,  the way waves are formed and how they affect shore-side communities.

Scientific consultation for The Ultimate Wave Tahiti 3D was provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

NOAA also filmed a public service announcement featuring Slater inspiring people to learn more about ocean threats and how they can make a difference by protecting these special places.

This entertaining and educational film is presented by Suzuki, with supporting sponsorship from Tahiti Tourisme and Quiksilver.  Additional details are available at
