Storyline

Narrated by Ron Gans. Extreme sports meets midnight movie with a film that showcases wild surfing and skateboarding madness. Awesome surfing footage with Larry Bertleman and skateboarding with Tony Alva. Lots of "shooting the curl!" Some of these surfers look like they're falling 25 feet straight down a cliff of water, but they stay on the board and have a thrilling ride. Incredible wipe-out footage! Intermixed with high-action surf and skate sequences the participants discuss why they do it and how it feels, looks and sounds. There's footage from the Hang Ten American Pro Surfing Championship and an explanation of the scoring system. Terrific footage from the Ventura, California 1975 skateboard championships. Footage from the Women's International Surfing championships. With their low-riding bikinis you see some butt crack footage. Surfing during Malibu's September swell of 1975. Footage from Hawaii, Japan, California, French Riviera. There's a mid-70s guitar rock soundtrack which is... Written by thevideobeat

I saw it when it first came out, I own the movie, I love it, I recommend it!!

Paul Rapp is an amazing cinematographer. I am a bodysurfer (had three sequences in the movie) and I got to watch him at his work at Pipeline and off the wall on Oahu. He captures the essence of the participants experience, whether it be surfing, hang gliding, skateboarding, cliff jumping, bodysurfing, snow skying. It is a classic. Every time I watch it it takes me back to the 1970/1980s when many of the sports that are mainstream now were in their infancy. I believe that "Go For It" became the one of template for future extreme sports documentaries. It is a great baseline to see how the sports have evolved and how the extreme sports filming industry has evolved. It is a movie that all outdoor sports enthusiasts will enjoy.
