Great surfing documentary!
21 April 2012 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Being a hard-to-find movie, this one is worth seeking out for those of you who, like me, enjoy watching surfing videos over a few drinks. This is one of the more pure, surf-loving videos, with no rhyme or reason to the flow of things. Just surfing clips tacked together. It's like taking your board out in the morning and checking out all the surf spots around. I actually feel like I'm stopping by these spots, seeing if I want to surf there today! A couple beers into this short (70 minute?) movie and I'm surfing! There's a zen thing to surf movies. You don't have to be a surfer to love these. Just find one, like Endless Summer II (probably one of the easiest to get your hands on) and if you love it, you'll want this one, too.

Just hard to nitpick on relaxing, enjoyable flicks like this. Just eternally fun to watch when you have time to waste. I'm a jazz nut, into artists like Eric Dolphy and Cannonball Adderly, and the soundtrack to this film fits right in. Love it! Highly recommend this film to any serious lover of movies, and of course to all surf nuts!
