I'm a surfer
20 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie is not very credible, the surfing (few) clips are just OK.

In the movie everything is just OK.

If someone is to do a movie just to be OK i believe that there are others of expression that are better suited. An article on a magazine, a Youtube.

What i believe is that there are surfers out there that are land locked like myself and it is through these movies that we allow our minds return to the liquid.

Bias? Sure. After all surf is something that you feel and you can't explain. I can tell you that i didn't feel it at all here.

Now that you have understood where i'm coming from, allow me to explain what are the other issues: 1 - the people that actually surf are really NOT the actors 2 - the actors are NOT actors.... really 3 - the idea that surf is a wood panel door truck is to cliché'

Maybe it would work for TV. In a movie is very painful.
