Tyler Canning is 20 years old and understandably bored. A boy from small-town Ontario, the high point of his life is filling out dead-end job applications at Mr. Sub and Country Style Donuts. Tyler’s need for thrills and dreams of fame led him to hurl himself into the Niagara River Rapids in 1999, and now he is planning the biggest stunt of all - going over Niagara Falls in a barrel. An impoverished yet determined hustler, Tyler throws himself into the tawdry underbelly of Niagara Falls, only to suffer an even crueler fall than the one he was planning.

The essence of surfing is an elusive ideal. Part sport, part state-of-mind; an avenue for self-expression, a metaphor for freedom; a ritual, a competitive event, a dangerous journey, a dance. Nature supplies the power, and with the proper balance of respect and resistance, we enjoy the ride. From the North Shore of Oahu, to the end of the road in Tahiti. From Australia to California, from Florida to France, the world's greatest surfers share their insights, and show us how - and why -- it's done. Their skill, and the thrill of the experience, are captured as never before in this documentary. What is the secret to surfing's global appeal? The answer is revealed by Florida's Kelly Slater, California's Rob Machado, Hawaii's Kalani Robb and Australia's Joel Parkinson, through their own voices, in DOWN THE BARREL. The sport of Surfing is displayed for what it is. WITHOUT SCRIPT. WITHOUT ANIMATION. WITHOUT HYPE.
