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

What a cosmic trip!
12 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"This flick is a must have for those who need that seventies stoke. What an amazing time it was back then.Cheap gas,unridden waves, earthy-mellow chicks, and most of all the perpetual spirit of adventure.This movie is rich in color and sound from start to finish. Waves sequences highlighting Larry Bertlemann,Shaun Tomson,Gerry Lopez, and many others will blow your mind. All the footage is rare and one of a kind. What makes this flick is the wild combination of sports. Original Z-boyz skate footage will stoke you beyond belief. Tony Alva,Jay Adams, and the infamous Bertlemann rip in the pool sequences and free ride scenes. Don't forget to crank the tunes, pull up some shag rug and gather the crew for this one cause it truly is a non-stop energy freedom trip man..." T. Barker / Santa Monica Canyon
