Movie Info

A documentary which centers on a cross-section of characters who come from many walks of life, but share one thing in common--the need to surf. For many of them, surfing is merely a hobby. For others, surfing is an identity and a lifestyle. For a fortunate and talented few, it is a profession. For one, it is salvation.

When Step Into Liquid remembers that it is indeed all about the wave, it pulls us right into it.

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.

Step Into Liquid could very well be the perfect surfing movie.

Sep 5, 2003 | Rating: 5/5

Step Into Liquid delivers eye-popping shots pumped up by the genuine cowabunga enthusiasm of true believers. By the end all you want to do is get in the water.

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.
