Storyline

The film portrays surfers living in spiritual harmony with nature, making their own boards (and homes) as they traveled in search of the perfect wave across Australia's north-east coast, Bali and Hawaii. The movie is regarded as one of the finest of its genre and noted as recording the first surfers to ride the waves at Uluwatu on the very southern tip of Bali and so bringing Bali to the attention of surfers around the world and so the beginnings of Bali as a major tourist destination. Written by Paul Gerard Kennedy

Brilliant Surf Movie
22 November 2003 | by johannes.beckSee all my reviews

Wonderful pictures of surfers in Australia, Indonesia and Hawaii. The cuts are not very fast like the today most used MTV-style but slow. The feeling of this movie is really psychedelic. Some pictures showing the surfers outside the water, but not too much of it. Most of the movie shows surfin' and that's what we buy surf movies for. Best surf movie I have ever seen.
