Understandably forgotten
23 December 2011 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

When the surfing documentary "The Endless Summer" became a hit in 1966, the next few years saw a number of other surfing documentaries hitting theaters, "Blue Surfari" being one of them. Today it is almost forgotten and quite hard to find, but upon seeing it it's easy to figure out why it's drifted into obscurity. Unlike "The Endless Summer", it doesn't give off a big love of surfing, mostly coming across in a routine and mechanical way. The scenes away from the surf come across as phony and a real forced attempt to generate humor. The characters on screen don't display any personality, nor do we get into their heads. As for the surfing footage, some of it is okay, but it's marred by a generic background musical score as well as a narrator who simply won't shut up and let the images and music do the talking. Maybe die hard surfers might find something here, but those who have never hit the waves will wonder why anyone would find this entertaining.
