The first officially sanctioned documentary about Maroubra's notorious surf-gang, the Bra Boys. Showing their success in professional big wave surfing, exploring their reputation for hard partying and rough justice, touching on their running battle with authorities and showing their reliance on one another to fit into and survive in a society in which they are displaced. The film also focuses on the evolution of the Sydney beach side suburb of Maroubra and the historical stigma associated with Australia's rebellious surf community, and the way it has contributed to their social displacement.

Narrator Russell Crowe says "In 1780 after passing through the Pacific Islands, Captain James Cook sailed into Botany Bay" This should of course be 1770, as Captain James Cook died in 1779 in Hawaii. See more »
This movie is astonishingly biased and is based on the opinion of gang members rather than true fact.
The movie basically attempts to justify a murder committed by one of the Abberton brothers, who head the group. It also accuses policemen of starting a fight with gang members when both groups were attending functions at the same location.
"Bra Boys" encourages youngsters to leave school and take up a life of dangerous surfing, drug use and crime. The leaders who offer their opinions are ridiculously immature. Its wrong this movie was allowed to be released.
The only good thing about the movie is Russell Crowes narration.
