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 Ride: Back to the Soul of Surfing
Lowest new price: $199.99

When cocky young haole surfing champion David Monroe wipes out on a big wave, he slips back in time to 1911 Hawaii. Washing up on Waikiki Beach, he discovers the true spirit of surfing when he is befriended by a young Hawaiian beachboy not yet known to the world - the future Olympic surfing legend Duke Kahanamoku. Once David develops feelings for the land and its people, falls in love with the beautiful and smart Lehua and learns the spirit of surfing, he changes and no longer desires to go back to his 21st century life.
Wanting to avoid common Hollywood stereotypes and represent a Hawaii that locals would recognize in look, sound and spirit, writer/producer/director Nathan Kurosawa based his film on real people, filmed on location in Hawaii and carefully chose historical, cultural and surfing advisors. The Ride gracefully depicts Hawaiian values and traditions while affectionately telling the story of surfing's early days with an all Hawaiian cast and crew, liberal use of "pidgin" and local mannerisms.
The young Duke Kahanamoku is played by Honolulu musician Sean Kaawa, whose tremendous screen presence and gentle dignified bearing bring the charismatic surfer to life. Weldon Kekauoha (award-winning Hawaiian musician) plays Blackie, one of the original Waikiki beachboys and Johann Bouit (former University of Hawaii football player) is Caps, one of Duke's closest friends. University of Hawaii dramatic-arts graduate Scot Davis plays David Monroe and model Mary Paalani is his love interest Lehua. Soundtrack provided by various Hawaiian artists including Keali'i Reichel, Hapa and Makaha Sons.
Winner of the Hawaii Film Award and the Audience Award for Best Feature Film.
Starring: Scot Davis, Sean Kaawa, Mary Paalani, Weldon Kekauoha, Johann Bouit, Wil Kahele ( 2005 - 93 minutes)

The original Blue Crush surf film by Bill Ballard has become one of the biggest selling surf titles of all time. Starring the talents of the same great female surfers featured in the Universal theatrical release and featuring an awesome soundtrack with Crystal Method, Dance Hall Crashers, Morcheeba, Da Da and others! Surfers include Rochelle Ballard (surfing double for lead actress Kate Bosworth in Universal's Blue Crush), Megan Abubo (stunt surfer for Michelle Rodrigues in Universal's Blue Crush), Sanoe Lake (played role of Lena in Universal's Blue Crush), Kealla Kennelly (played herself in Universal's Blue Crush), and Kate Skarratt (played herself in Universal's Blue Crush).
Not to be confused with the 2002 feature film of the same title, Blue Crush is billed as the original all-girl surfer's movie, and it's guaranteed to please devotees of the sport. It's a mixed blessing, however, because it assumes familiarity with the sport and its superstars, dispensing with any educational or historical detail that would appeal to neophytes. After all, how can this film be dedicated to Rell Sunn (the pioneer of female competitive surfing, who died in of breast cancer in 1998 at age 47) and fail to explore her illustrious career? This haphazard approach extends to profiles of the young women who regard Sunn as their hero; we learn little of their backgrounds and how they rose to prominence on the waves. Blue Crush works best as a globetrotting, music-video tour of surfdom's prime locations (Samoa, Hawaii, the Gold Coast, South Africa) hosted by the sport's most prominent competitors, including several (Rochelle Ballard, Megan Abubo, Sanoe Lake, Keala Kennelly, Kate Skarratt) who appeared in Universal's popular feature. It's a lot of fun, especially if you "hang ten" on a regular basis. --Jeff Shannon
|Bustin' Down the Door

This ground breaking action-packed documentary takes you back to the winter of 1975 in Hawaii -a dramatic moment in history when a group of young South African and Australian surfers sacrificed everything. They put it all on the line to create a sport, a culture, and an industry that is today worth billions of dollars and has captured the imagination of the world. A powerhouse film, the spell-binding action footage and fascinating subjects make Bustin' Down the Door a surfing classic.
In the early 1970s, Australian chargers Mark Richards, Peter Townend, Ian Cairns, and Wayne "Rabbit" Bartholomew landed in Oahu with something to prove. Hawaii was seen as the center of the surfing universe and the brash Aussies sought to shake things up. Along with South Africans Shaun and Michael Tomson, the crew ripped apart legendary breaks like Pipeline and Waimea with radical innovations and bravery that bordered on insanity. Combining classic footage and revealing modern-day interviews, Bustin' Down the Door exposes the soul of this revolutionary period in a way few surf films can. The ground-breaking talents of MR and Co. are rightfully lauded for helping to build the concept of professional surfing, yet no excuses are offered for the reckless arrogance that helped ignite a powder keg of cultural pride on the North Shore. The self-promoting Australians were not shy about their talents, but by the time Cairns declared that "Aloha is dead" during the summer of '75, competitive banter had dangerously escalated beyond the waves. But what the group lacked in diplomacy, they made up for in determination, as their shared desire to be the best gave rise to a new era of surfing. --Dave Callanan

Brand: Koastal Media
Director/Writer/Producer Josh Landan works with Producer/Writer/Editor Scott Stankey to craft one of the most revealing and compelling surfing stories ever told, offering a feature documentary delivered in a truly unique cinematic style. FLOW is narrated by Brandon Boyd (Incubus) with music from the bands Incubus, Bloc Party, Sparta, Pinback, and many others including original music and score by Michael Einziger, Tim Curran, and Todd Hannigan. FLOW chronicles the last 31 years of surfing through a unique, insider's perspective as to the dedication, devotion, and individual passion that has revolutionized modern surfing and its mostly misinterpreted lifestyle. The story focuses on Channel Islands Surfboards founder and world-renowned surfboard craftsman Al Merrick and his special relationships with the team of world champion Channel Islands Team riders and arguably the two best and most influential surfers ever: Kelly Slater (7 time world champion) and Tom Curren (3 time world champion). The film highlights Al's visionary approach that cultivated the Channel Islands Team rider's talent into 19 world titles, bringing you back to the early 60's with the evolution of the shortboard and takes you on a journey up to present day. We relive those profound years that experienced a revolutionary leap forward in surfing design, performance, and image, and weave through to the present where you experience first hand what it takes to be a part of the most progressive surfing team in the world. FLOW reveals the core, revolutionary changes that resulted in a worldwide recognition of modern surfing. It is not just a surf film with beautiful imagery and a loose story structure, but rather a heart-felt, soulful perspective on one man's influence on a bevy of talented individuals. This film will not only illustrate the revolution of modern surfing, but it will inspire people that are completely distanced from the sport.
