Surf's Up

comment
Surfer’s have an inseparable bond with the ocean -- they can’t surf without it. Surfing champion Kelly Slater has ridden waves around the world, but there’s nowhere as uniquely challenging as Tahiti. With its amazing coral reefs and beautiful tropical scenery, the region of French Polynesia is a surfer’s paradise because the waves are unmatched. The Ultimate Wave Tahiti, an IMAX-style adventure, reveals where those waves come from, and why each and everyone of them is a priceless treasure to the people of the islands -- and to the people of the world. Some islands are just bigger than others, after all. The Ultimate Wave Tahiti screens daily in the Saint Louis Science Center OMNIMAX Theater (5050 Oakland Avenue; 314-289-4424 or www.slsc.org). Tickets are $8 to $9.
