Before seeing Riding Giants, my ideas about surfing were formed by the Gidget movies, Endless Summer, the Beach Boys, Elvis and lots of TV commercials. ... Riding Giants is about altogether another reality.
An aficionada of the saltwater documentary, I am thrilled to report that Riding Giants, Stacy Peralta's exhilarating account of the revolution and evolution in big-wave surfing, is among the best of this breathtaking genre.
It may take willpower not to run directly from the theater down to the nearest shoreline, just for a whiff of whatever saltwater magic sauce the big-wave stars featured in Peralta's vibrant docu are on.
