Beverly Hills, CA. – Anchor Bay Entertainment’s award-winning film about surfing and second chances, THE PERFECT WAVE, is available today on Blu-ray™, DVD, Digital Download and On Demand. Based on true events, this inspiring story follows avid surfer and future ordained minister Ian McCormack on his travels to find the perfect wave.

A visually stunning film shot in exotic locations such as New Zealand, Bali, Indonesia, South Africa and the island of Mauritius, THE PERFECT WAVE stars Scott Eastwood (Trouble with the Curve, the upcoming Fury), Rachel Hendrix (October Baby), Cheryl Ladd (“Charlie’s Angels”), and Patrick Lyster (“Black Sails”).

THE PERFECT WAVE Blu-ray™ and DVD special features include an interview with director Bruce Macdonald, “The Perfect Wave: It’s Not Just About Love” featurette, “Perfect Wave” music video, “Collide: Uphill Struggle Of A Downhill Skater” featurette, behind-the-scenes footage, and more.

Scott Eastwood – son of screen legend Clint Eastwood – delivers a breakthrough performance as Ian McCormack, a rebellious young surfer who impulsively decides to leave home and travel the world’s most exotic surf spots. But living in the moment can have its thrills – including a romance with beautiful kindred soul Annabel (Rachel Hendrix of October Baby) – as well as its sacrifices. And following a horrific accident and near-death experience on the island of Mauritius, Ian receives a glimpse into eternity that will change his life forever. Patrick Lyster (“Black Sails”) and Cheryl Ladd (“Charlie’s Angels”) co-star in this inspirational true story about the power of faith, the love of family, and one man’s search for THE PERFECT WAVE. The film’s talented cast also features award-winning professional surfers, Matt Bromley and Rosy Hodge.

THE PERFECT WAVE continues its impressive run in the film festival circuit as it prepares to screen at the acclaimed San Diego Film Festival on September 27, followed by winning a Red Carpet Premiere spot at the Kingdomwood Film Festival in Hilton Head, SC on October 2. These two festivals come after the film was awarded the second place prize for Best Feature Film at the International Christian Film Festival as well as a Best Cinematography Win at The Pan Pacific Film Festival.

As a complimentary addition to the film, THE PERFECT WAVE has partnered with YouVersion to create a unique devotional, titled Back from the Dead: Kickstart Your Spiritual Future. This 21-day devotional was created with Ian McCormack, inspired by his personal encounter with God. This epic adventure through Scripture will enhance the film experience, and awaken the reader’s spiritual senses and point them toward what Ian McCormack calls “life before death”. Back from the Dead is available free of charge at or on the YouVersion app.
