SURF MOVIES.

I Have used the Search Function and had errors after errors come up.. so thought id throw this out there.

Have recently gotten my GF into fishing and now she doesnt bug me for going all the time.. so now its time to get her into Surfing, ive bought her a wetsuit and got a spare board here that will do her for now..

but something she has actually been getting into a bit is "Surf Movies". by this i dont mean the hundreds of videos of people shredding waves etc though she does watch the XXL and big wave vids with me a fair bit on youtube.

She watched "Chasing Mavericks" last night all the way through without falling asleep or asking a million questions ( we all know how unusual that is ;) ) . so ive been wondering what other movies can be used to wet her appetite even more!

so far ive only shown her "In Gods Hands", "Soul Surfer" and "Chasing Mavericks" have got "Bra Boys" lined up as well and probably the Endless Summer movies.

Any more suggestion of surfing based movies with a story line??

cheers

Blue Crush.

She'll love it but you'll probably want to neck yourself within the first 10 minutes.

Not sure if it's the kind of movie you're looking for but even if it doesn't suit your misses I'm sure you'll enjoy it... Second Thoughts. A proper surf film but with a bit of a story and more importantly awesome surf.

Don't teach her how to surf mate or the next holiday you book you'll be looking for the world softest waves.
My missus liked that billabong big wave movie from a few years ago, generally she finds watching surfing boring, matter of fact so do I.

North shore, corny but a classic.

The drifter, bit wanky but worth watching once.

As is Nat Youngs History of surfing (documentary style)

Theres also a movie about that pro surfer chick that got her arm bit off, sorry forgot her name, worth watching once.

Doped Youth is a thought provoking, intelligent look at the hopes and aspirations of a diverse group of surfers who have formed a band. The plot centres around Oscar and his love interest, known only as Bunny Girl, as he strives to overcome his nemesis the egotistical Groovy Avalon(played by an excellent Kelly Slater who's work on Baywatch paved the way for this breakout role).
With the evil character Augustus Peebelby plotting their downfall the band, Doped Youth, fight their way to the finals of the Battle of the Bands.
Did they win? Well you just have to see the movie!
With some great surfing sequences and a cameo appearance from Greasy and Lemmmy(aka Mick Fanning and Joel Parkinson) this movie is a classic and sure to entertain your girl del.
I give it 4 stars. XXXX

the sixth sense, the ross clarke-jones movie, my wife enjoyed, and is a good movie, and the bustin down the door one with rabbit etc she has sat through twice-this ones worth it to hear what ian cairns was planning to do if anyone messed with him when the trouble was on...

For goodness sakes carpetman, just tell us and put us out of our misery too.

You've got me baffled.

Could it be 'Ride the wild Surf'?

Yorkesurfer mentioned 'Doped Youth' and it's a movie that bears repeating.

Check the link and make sure you've got the volume turned waaaaay up 'cos guitars and surfing go together like Ozzie Wright and rock shelves.

BEST. SECTION. EVER.

No no, you'll have to go to all the trouble of dragging the mouse over the youtube links, copying, pasting in the browser search bar and finally pressing enter. I know its tough but it will be worth it.

Nice one carpetman. I watched the trailer and here I was thinking it would be some intellectual wasteland, void of plot and substance. I somehow feel I've been living under a rock having missed this little cinematic gem.

I think it has been in the pipeline (please excuse the pun) for a while after a few failed attempts to get up and running.

But it just wouldn't be the same without Bodhi!

What I'd like to know, getting back to the original post, Del-boy, what the hell are you doing getting your GF into fishing ???

Mate, you don't take girls fishing. The boys go fishing to get away from the girls. The boys go fishing and the girls go shopping... that's the rules.

Be very careful, get her into fishing and surfing, next she'll be after your shed. Then where are you gunna hide ?

Another 80's classic that inspired me as a teenager was Billabong's Surf into Summer. With that old school American narration and an awsome soundtrack(TSOL, Bill Lincoln) I played this on my VHS player at least 1000 times.

Sections on a brash young Occy dueling with Tom Curren at Bells, 17 year old Sunny Garcia fucking tearing, Bugs and Butto at Kirra and the Eddie where a young Ross Clarke Jones blew everyone away charging 25ft Waimea Bay after surviving three 30ft cleanup sets!

The boards and surfing look a bit dated in this day and age but its worth a look to see that point in time where thrusters were in their infancy and new school surfing was just around the corner.

Is that as good as Mega Force?

'Surf Nazi's Must Die' should be re-released on DVD. Don't know how I missed that one.
It also led me to a clip from 'Blood Surf'. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0226919/
I haven't posted the youtube link as it was a soft porn scene. Not sure how it was unrestricted on youtube though.
