Storyline

The first surf film shot in 4K, View From A Blue Moon follows the world's most dynamic surfer John Florence and his closest friends from his home on the North Shore of Oahu to his favorite surfing destinations around the globe. From the dreamy blue perfection of the South Pacific to the darkest uncharted waters of Africa (and everywhere in between), Florence faces a broad spectrum of emotions as he continues to seal his legacy as one of the most gifted surfers ever. And while the young Hawaiian is pulled in increasingly different directions, there is no form of pressure that will keep him from his ultimate goal - to redefine what is possible in the ocean.

The movie told the untold beauty of what most surfer sees, the wave and the sea.
19 December 2019 | by jeanardhita-88182See all my reviews

I think this movie is poetic in a ways that shows how John loves surfing and the sea through his eyes. It doesn't really need character development or consistent narrative because the movie doesn't serve the purpose of it being story to tell. The movie told the untold beauty of what most surfer sees, the wave and the sea.
