MAD DOGS is about 3 pioneer surfers from Brazil who have risked their lives for years to pursue a dream of surfing Jaws, the world's largest and heaviest wave, in the purest way, paddling. Danilo, Marcio and Yuri moved to Hawaii in late 90s to surf the world's most famous waves. At around the same time, Laird Hamilton and some friends started using jet skis to surf the giant reef waves, farther from the shore, revealing to the world a place called Peahi, also known as Jaws. Jaw's show became a media circus attracting hundreds of surfers seeking fame, notoriety and money. Then, in 2006, the 3 Brazilians started a saga that lasted 5 years. They challenged Jaws year after year, with no life jackets, rescue teams, jet skis, or plan B, dropping waves that almost took their lives in several occasions. They came to be know as the Mad Dogs.
