  • Eventually suffers from its accumulation of admittedly spectacular but repetitive images and would probably benefit from both extensive trimming and projection on a large-format screen.

  • A superb documentary that delves into the science, emotions and danger surrounding the handful of men and women who risk their lives searching for the ultimate thrill.

  • A dog's dinner of profiles, repetitive narration, safety tips and banal 'insights' into the joys and dangers of cresting waves that sometimes reach 70 feet.

    November 7, 2003 | Rating: 1.5/4
  • With its emphasis on global positioning devices, Jet Skis and computer-designed surfboards, Mr. Boston's film is very much concerned with the stuff and very little with the spirit of professional surfing as practiced today.

    November 6, 2003 | Rating: 2/5
  • Pretty much everything here -- tow surfing, hydrofoil boards, token bit on women surfers -- already appeared in this summer's equally halfass Step Into Liquid.

  • Aug 15, 2007
    Great documentary following the evolution of Surfing when looking for the biggest wave. Has one of the best opening scenes of any movie, including a few action films. Although it blows the money shot right away the rest of the film takes us on a journey around the world, introduces us to some of the heroes of Surfing and then takes us up to the story behind the opening scene. 8/10
