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.September 7, 2009 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
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.
