The Definitive Surf Film
Verified purchase
The reason I travelled round the world surfing was this one film. Upgraded format to blueray is an improvement whilst still retaining that old tape feel. If you surf or interested in surfing and haven't watched this film/documentary then you're missing out. Give it a go and I bet you will want to pack in the job, book a flight and travel... surfboard under arm. :)

Exploring the impossible and testing the limits
Verified purchase
Nothing to say here: Either you get it or you don't. Each to their own... but one thing: where would the human race be without exploring the impossible and testing the limits? Plus hilarious old footage of (not so long ago) old Africa as it was just a generation ago. Enjoy!

A really dated film, i wounder how much these places have changed with time. It would be interesting to try and do a remake in the 2019's or 2020 ?.

Dated but brilliant
Verified purchase
If you're in to surfing then you've got to be able to say that you've seen this. It's probably THE classic surf documentary, following two guys on their global search for the perfect wave. Made in the sixties, the fact that it is so dated (in the narration, set-piece scenes and also what constitutes a perfect wave) makes it even more enjoyable. If Alan Wicker had made a surf travel documentary....

Charts the surf booming and lifestyle in the late 60's/70's.
One for the purists, not sure modern day society would appreciate it but worth a viewing if you have any passion for this activity and culture!
