Building character through sporting achievements and challenges
Deepwater is a dynamic sports reality series that showcases the abilities and personalities of some of Australia’s toughest and fittest surf athletes in a way that hasn’t been attempted before. Conquering the Indian Ocean is just the beginning, as this series takes Australia’s six leading surf lifesaving ironmen to the coastline of Western Australia to compete in a number of team and individual challenges. They also venture to the USA to be thrown into many new and challenging situations, forced to use skills they will learn only in the day before each challenge – from abseiling to Navy Seals training. Intertwined with mind games, the athletes will be pushed to their limits and we’ll see if sport builds character or reveals it.
