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.

Audience Reviews for Step Into Liquid

Breathtaking footage and fascinating locales, this movie isn't just about the culture of surfing and thrill seeking it also serves to highlight the human spirit of adventure, ingenuity, and appreciation of the beauty of the natural world. Much like the sport's enthusiasts it portrays it never takes it self too seriously and the the affection the movie has for it's subjects mirrors the genuine affection the surfers have for the sport itself.

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.

Pretty solid little flick about surfing. This won't do anything for hardcore surfers, this is more for the person who lives in the midwest who doesn't really know what surfing is about.
