Quotes

George Greenough: You might be in there for only a few seconds---in real time---but in your head it goes on for hours. It is an experience that's hard to describe, riding inside of a big, grinding wave. Often you're riding so deep inside the tube, you don't make it out. You take a terrible wipe out. What matters is when you're in there, it's the time interval when you're inside the wave. Time enters space, a zone of its own. The only reality is what's happening right then.

surf and turf
28 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

Do not expect to much from this film. It's pretty much a no brain surf movie (lots of big splashy waves and dudes with blond hair and orange skin talking about how at one they feel with the ocean). But if you enjoy that kind of film then this one is not bad. There are a lot better but I like this one because it has a Pink Floyd track at the end of the film (well actually it takes up 23mins 31sec of the film) it is a track off the album Meddle called Echoes, very tripped out music which mixes beautifully with the visuals of the ocean.
