Step Into Liquid

Step Into Liquid Lowest new price: $6.73

List price: $9.99
Brand: LGF

"Dana Brown, the son of surfing documentarian Bruce Brown, outdoes his father in Step into Liquid. This beautifully shot documentary takes you around the world to experience surfing like it's never been done before.

Thanks to Dana Brown's delightful Step Into Liquid, the surfing scene in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, should get a healthy boost. That's because Brown, in the tradition of his father, filmmaker Bruce Brown (The Endless Summer), has captured dazzling images of surfers riding curls in some of the world's most exotic--and sometimes unlikely--places. Besides the action on Lake Michigan, Brown leads us to Costa Rica, where the sport's senior elite (including Summer star Robert August) prove they still have the moves, and Oahu's North Shore, where the legendary Pipeline inspires this quote: "It's so scary, maybe you die a little." Most entertaining is a segment in County Donegal, where the American Malloy brothers startle the locals and meet their Irish counterparts on the grayest ocean imaginable. Great personal stories here, including the tale of Northern California's Dale Webster, who has never missed a day on the waves in 30 years. --Tom Keogh

Riding Giants (Special Edition)

Riding Giants (Special Edition) Lowest new price: $2.00
Lowest used price: $1.49
List price: $8.22
Brand: CLARK,JEFF

From acclaimed director Stacy Peralta comes Riding Giants, the story of big wave surfing. Breakingthe mold of traditional documentary filmmaking, Riding Giants uses its dynamic, cross-generational approach to profile the lives and times of the intrepid surfers who over the decades have dedicated themselves to finding and successfully challenging the biggest waves on earth. We meet Greg Noll, the pioneer, whose relentless push into Hawaii's big surf in the late 1950s earned him the nickname "The Bull." There's Jeff Clark, Northern California's lone frontiersman, who, after discovering the massive waves of Maverick's near San Francisco, rode there alone for over a decade. And finally Hawaii's Laird Hamilton, the prototypical "extreme" surfer, a rare breed of athlete/innovator considered as the best big wave rider who ever waxed a board. Through a fast-paced combination of mediums that include classic archival photography, spectacular movie footage - both current and vintage - and co

Riding Giants is more than another blissfulsurfing movie. It's an outstanding documentary about one era in American alternative lifestyles, when surfing was well-suited to a radical culture of social dropouts. Using an amazing array of amateur film clips, shot for the most part in Hawaii and California from the late 1950s and early '60s, director Stacy Peralta traces the rise of surfing's appeal to young men looking to test themselves in an unorthodox (and sexy) milieu--of "living life to the fullest," as former surfer-turned-screenwriter John Milius (Big Wednesday) puts it at one point. Lengthy chapters on the glories of Oahu's Makaha and the "superstition and dread" that accompanied the big-wave challenge of Waimea Bay are riveting and sometimes heroic, particularly told through the memories of surf legend Greg Noll. Great material, too, about the deadly wonders of surfing Mavericks, California, where the rocks will get one if the violent tides don't. --Tom Keogh

The Surfer's Journal - Fifty Years of Surfing on Film Vol 2

The Surfer's Journal - Fifty Years of Surfing on Film Vol 2 Lowest new price: $19.95
List price: $19.95

Columbia Pictures released Gidget in 1959, and by the early 60s, with the help of Frankie and Annette, Hollywood's version of surfing was being steadily fed to the masses. The whole thing was an embarrassment to the surfers. Meanwhile, these three surf filmmakers were doing an excellent job in bringing real beauty, excitement, culture and color of the sport to the big screen. Bruce Brown's early films demonstrated his dry wit and a casual rapport with the best surfers of the late 50s and early 60s. His sixth film, The Endless Summer, showed the rest of the world what the sport was really all about. Greg MacGillivray, along with his partner Jim Freeman, produced a series of films from the mid-60s to the early 70s that set the standard for technical excellence. Their last work, Five Summer Stories, is a period classic. As surfer designer and filmmaker, George Greenough has made tremendous contributions. He was the first to take a camera inside the tube, and his slow motion footage from within is as beautiful and hypnotic today as it was when first seen by a stunned surfing public in 1970.

The Surfer's Journal - Fifty Years of Surfing on Film Vol 3 Lowest new price: $19.95
List price: $19.95

Beginning with the short-board revolution of the late 1960s and continuing into the early years of professional surfing, attitudes were changing along with surfboard size. Four filmmakers were able to capture the transformation: Paul Witzig's Evolution, released in 1969, quickly became a symbol for the turbulent early stages of the short-board era. Three years later, Alby Falzon made Morning of the Earth and showed how things had mellowed out. While Witzig and Falzon offered the Australian perspective during this time, Hal Jepsen focused on California and Hawaii. His 1969 movie, Cosmic Children, is a period classic. His follow-up, A Sea for Yourself, is smoother and better-founded. Bill Delaney's Free Ride wasn't just the definitive look at surfing in mid-1970's, it was probably the last great surf movie. His second film, 1990's Surfers: The Movie, was an intriguing mix of old and new footage, combined with interviews from a wide variety of surfers.
