The Elite Man/Woman event invites 24 men and 24 women to compete in a gruelling elimination event. Competitors fight over 3 legs to earn a place in the final as they take on a 3 stage course of swimming, surfboard paddling and ski paddling in each round.
The event is being organised by local surfer and 8x British ironman champion Nick Thorn in conjunction with the 2012 Goldcoast Oceanfest.
Maniac Films will be covering the event in order to provide Nick with a shorp promo film as well as media rushes immediately following the event.
We will be filming the even using our Canon EOS 7D cameras on the beach and a number of GoPro cameras in the water - some of which will be strapped to the athletes.
We are looking forward to returning to our roots - surf filming!
