    Awesome!

    I lived in Hawaii and went to all the places mentioned in the film. I was there when the large storm mentioned that came in and there was a 60 foot wave that came up the side of the hill we were all standing on and into the road. There was a rescue also performed for a surfer who did not fare so well.... I loved the film and am buying two for my brother who surfed in Hawaii and my brotherinlaw who lives and surfs in California. All scenes were breathtaking especially on our big screen. Thank you.

    Great movie - especially if you grew up in the '60s and '70s!

    I rented this movie a while back and decided I wanted to have it for my collection. It's great, if only for the amazing surfing footage. But the history and music and characters add to it to make it even more enjoyable. I highly recommend it!

    Greatest big-surf movie yet

    This is a truly "kick back and enjoy it" movie that pays serius tribute to the big guys surfing the big waves of long ago. It brings you right into today and embodies the true surfing spirit--not of the hot dogs, but of the heroes. Having hung out at The Trestle, San Onofre, and Huntington Beach in the late '40s, and surfing Makaha myself in 1953....I heartily recommend this. Just wish I could find it in VHS for my surfing buddies who are in their late 70s and up nowadays, and who don't have DVDs.
