|The Ride: Back to the Soul of Surfing
Lowest new price: $103.95
Lowest used price: $39.99
List price: $19.99
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)

Teahupoo, Tahiti. On the 17th of August, 2000, a line was drawn in the sand and Laird Hamilton stood alone. Engulfed in the vortex of the heaviest wave ever ridden, Laird Hamilton stood where no man had ever stood before. Death was the only outcome if a mistake was made. The footage shocked the world. Had it not been captured on film, no one would believe it was possible. It was a moment shadowed only by the journey of his life as a waterman and explorer of the most pure form of energy on earth. This amazing film, shoot on both High Definition and 35mm, won numerous awards at the 2002 X-dance Film Festival. This is the extreme movie of the year, quite possibly the decade. Music By Ben Harper, Moby and Bender!
He stands 6-foot-5, with long golden hair--and he still looks minuscule when photographed against the backdrop of the mammoth waves in this outstanding surfing documentary. Laird Hamilton travels to Hawaii and Tahiti in search of the biggest waves anyone has ever tried to ride. Skimming across the side of a wall of water, he's harnessing both gravity and the power of the wave in a death-defying balancing act. There is something almost therapeutic about watching the endless slow-motion images of Hamilton riding one wave after another, meticulously photographed to capture both the pounding force of the water and Hamilton's daring ability to tame it. The footage is set to a contemporary score, featuring musical acts as diverse as Moby, Ben Harper, and Bender as the backdrop for Hamilton's startling feats. --Marshall Fine

This film from the Bruce Brown Collection explores the trials and tribulations of the barefoot adventurers from the Wedge to Waimea, Honolulu to Huntington, Santa Cruz to Kaui. This film features a Bud Shank musical score, brand new narration and some of the biggest surf ever ridden, including the legendary Point surf at Makaha.
The grandfather of surf movies, Bruce Brown introduces his third film by showing off the microphone he would use onstage while narrating Barefoot Adventure when he would show it in the early 1960s in auditoriums around southern California. He notes that a tape recording of his original narration couldn't be found in his attic, so he and his son have written a new narration for the film. That seems unfortunate at first, but the necessity of coming up with new commentary allows Brown to speak wistfully of surfing days gone by. Most of the film was shot in Hawaii in 1960, when the islands were already a magnet for tourists, but visitors were mostly content to take hula lessons and lounge around their hotels. Fanatics seeking the perfect waves of Hawaii were still a relative rarity, and Brown reminisces about traveling the islands, seeking out incredible new surfing spots in rattletrap cars that could be purchased for $45. The film shot by Brown, who would encase his camera in a watertight Plexiglas box, is often gorgeous, though the footage does show some scratches and other minor flaws that speak to its authenticity. While the camera never strays too far from showing surfers riding spectacular waves, there are some quirky comedic bits, generally playing on the dangers of going barefoot or the problems surfers faced living with virtually no money. This is a beautiful document of the earliest days of the surfing craze. --Robert J. McNamara
|Billabong Presents: The Jack McCoy Collection Surfing Movies DVD Box Set
Lowest used price: $37.99
Jack McCoy and Billabong are re-releasing the classics, Bunyip Dreaming, Sons Of Fun, The Green Iguana and Sik Joy in a special edition four pack DVD box set.
The old VHS copies must have the tape burnt off them due to excessive play so it's time to upgrade those treasured puppies to digitally remastered sweetness. Days and days of flat day viewing featuring all your favourites, Occy, Munga, Luke Egan and the emerging young talents of Donovan, Margo and Shane Dorian.
When McCoy was rolling precious film on these boys during the mid nineties, times were different and movie deadlines were dictated by time spent in the pit, not the labour of following phantom Internet swells around the globe.
Mate, back then we wouldn't even look at the forecast,Margo recalls. It was all about rocking up to a place for a few weeks and just dealing with whatever we got. Nine times out of ten it just panned out. I mean, I was twenty years old, just cruising around, surfing the best waves in Australia.
Over the last two years on the road showing Blue Horizon and Free As A Dog people were constantly asking me when Bunyip, Iguana, Son's, and Sik Joy were going to make it to DVD, said McCoy. After many years, I finally sat down and watched them again and was pleasantly surprised how entertaining and fun they are today.
I think they have really stood the test of time and I decided it was time to get them out on DVD.
This will really bring back memories for all those involved in the making of the films and for all the people who have called them Classics for many years. I want them to stoke out a generation who have never seen them before.
The Jack McCoy Collection, including four separate DVD's with the makings of and bonus clips available in a box set.

|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.
