Quotes

George Greenough: You might be in there for only a few seconds---in real time---but in your head it goes on for hours. It is an experience that's hard to describe, riding inside of a big, grinding wave. Often you're riding so deep inside the tube, you don't make it out. You take a terrible wipe out. What matters is when you're in there, it's the time interval when you're inside the wave. Time enters space, a zone of its own. The only reality is what's happening right then.

an original and lasting masterpiece
25 November 2002 | by grumpy-3See all my reviews

Firstly for those who think this is a documetary it is not. It is a very subjective film on surfing and the ocean. The first fifty minutes is george and his pals building a boat and surfing, with spectacular images. Then we go to first person camera, and become a dolphin/man experiencing with the help of pink floyd's echoes, what it must be like swimming unhindered and free.

If you do not like surfing or being in the water or just letting a film with great images and music wash over then stay clear of this, but if you like films as koyaaniqasti/baraka etc then crystal voyager is a must for you.

For thopse guys who thought it was dull, stick to your boring diet of hollywood crap
