  • Watching top surfers in action is never a chore, but the film's archive footage would have been even more enjoyable to lay viewers if the commentary had better explained why the men's innovations were so daring and controversial.

  • A subject worth exploring but, whilst old footage illustrates the storyline, this doesn't manage to strecth up until the present day.

  • This impressive sports doc finds enough drama in the situation to involve a wider audience, since the archive footage of these chaps gliding through waves the size of a house is quite something.

  • The characters aren't quite as charismatic as the Z-Boys and the editing isn't as abrasively cool, but it does give a glimpse of how an outsider lifestyle evolved into a multibillion-dollar business.

  • The documentary celebrates the athleticism and creativity of the sport's unsung Nureyevs and Nijinskys.

  • Despite the group's many successes, self-pitying tears are rarely far from their eyes. It's fascinating stuff and unfathomably bleak.
