Everyone is a saint in Brown's eyes, and few are especially interesting as a result.

Serving as director, co- editor and narrator, Brown turns the obsession of top-ranking surfers into a universally appealing celebration of excellence on the treacherous North Shore of Oahu.

[Director Dana] Brown's main talent is the way he blends stunning cinematography and crisp editing into you-are-there immediacy.

Has enough magical shots of surfers standing deep in the curl, their hands rippling along the faces of giant waves, to keep you watching.

Surfing devotees might be impressed, but other viewers will be left wondering what all the fuss is about.

The film ends up as a cliquish circle jerk that flatters those in the know and leaves neophytes little to mull over.

Sure to become a sacred text to surf-movie enthusiasts, but surprisingly watchable even for those who think "goofy-footing" is a new Southern hip-hop dance craze.

There are no great emotional revelations about the fearless, free-spirited athletes profiled in the film, but these tanned-and-toned folks' deep love of surfing and mostly cheerful demeanors prove enjoyably infectious.
