The Life and Times of Nathan Fletcher, Heavy Water takes a close look at the child prodigy's relationship with big wave surfing. A pioneer of the paddle-out movement and the scion of a royal family of surfing and key figure in Big Wave history, Fletcher was spectacular at 11, burnt out at 16, and back in the saddle at 23, scoring two perfect 10s at Tahiti's Teahupo.
The film traces his lineage back to his grandfather, one of the pioneers of Oahu's North Shore, and examines the consequences that Fletcher and his friends – including the late Sion Milowsky – have faced in the pursuit of their passion for big waves.
