One California Day
I haven't seen Single Fin Yellow but is on my list
1. Shelter - All the best pro's staying in one house surfing together
2. Step Into Liquid - Pure stoke and Cortez
3. Drive Thru - any of them
4. Medication - Full movie of rail surfing that would make Curren proud, Taylor Knox is the sh!t
5. Momentum 2 - Great soundtrack and sick next gen post new skool surfing
I've watched Style Masters many, many times... with the narration. I love it.
Yea... you're right. Missed that one. Right around the time of Innermost Limits, but with that distinct backwoods Aussie 70's vibe. The only thing that I don't like is all the slow-mo... just too much of a good thing, IMO. But good call.

I seriously burned like 25 movies off that site then poof.... it vanished....
Anyone know if this site still exists under some different URL? It was pretty useful.
My memory is a little vague, but I remember as a kid in the early 80s going to screenings of surf movies at a warehouse in Long Branch. I think it was the Water Borne warehouse. I think one of the flicks was "Blazing Boards," but again a little foggy. Was such a part of the surf experience, all the hooting and the funny smelling smoke in the back of the room. Current movies, a bit out of the loop but do have "Dark Fall," "Riding Giants," and "Waveriders" in heavy rotation on the Ipad during the commute.
Thicker Than Water is my favorite. I know its kinda old but I still go back and watch it. It's just one of those movies that's like awesome and tranquil and super well done (from the music and filming aspect imho).
Also I know that Lords of Dogtown is more of skate movie but I love how they incorporate surfing into it bc of the similar roots..
