In any sport, whether it's whacking a ball into a cup or your opponent into submission, the majestic and the absurd are very close cousins, and Brown is generous enough here to give us a long look at both.

Audience Reviews for Step Into Liquid

For the surfer, if it exists within you. For those who aren't fascinated by the surf culture, it is just a well pieced together documentary..without any really interesting revelations.

Beautifuly filmed Surf Documentry. I love that it's not cliche. Personaly I feel a sense of freedom watching it. Even tho I've only surfed a handfull of times this doc really validates my connection to those times. Good soundtrack.
