Storyline

Narrated by Ron Gans. Extreme sports meets midnight movie with a film that showcases wild surfing and skateboarding madness. Awesome surfing footage with Larry Bertleman and skateboarding with Tony Alva. Lots of "shooting the curl!" Some of these surfers look like they're falling 25 feet straight down a cliff of water, but they stay on the board and have a thrilling ride. Incredible wipe-out footage! Intermixed with high-action surf and skate sequences the participants discuss why they do it and how it feels, looks and sounds. There's footage from the Hang Ten American Pro Surfing Championship and an explanation of the scoring system. Terrific footage from the Ventura, California 1975 skateboard championships. Footage from the Women's International Surfing championships. With their low-riding bikinis you see some butt crack footage. Surfing during Malibu's September swell of 1975. Footage from Hawaii, Japan, California, French Riviera. There's a mid-70s guitar rock soundtrack which is... Written by thevideobeat

My introduction to... surfing
2 July 2003 | by (North Carolina) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when I was nine, in a double feature with the original "Gone in Sixty Seconds." It was a sort of montage documentary about skateboarding, car racing, skiing, etc., things considered extreme individual sports at the time. I remember two scenes very vividly - one was a skateboarder going down a steep hill and doing a fake body slam into a car (there was a goofy sound effect, then you saw him embedded in a person-shaped dent in a VW), and then there was a sequence with young women surfing topless. I just don't have enough good things to say about that particular scene. I'd like to thank the makers of this movie for inspiring a nine-year old boy and instilling in me a love of fine cinema and photography.
