Havok is also sick... A video that a good friend of mine produced 3-4 years ago with a bunch of Local Pros in San Diego... Its all in OB, La Jolla, Trestles and Mexico... its just sick seeing nice production and retarded surfing from guys i paddled out with all the time... Pretty good production for a low budget local film too.
In terms of those sort of "documentary" type movies about individual surfers (Occumentary, Montaj, etc.) my favorite is Just Add Water (Clay Marzo). Compelling story...
Thicker than water, great footage and sound track (thanks to Jack Johnson), endless summer is old but a classic, those dudes Mike Hynson and Robert August attitudes is great.
"One Track Mind" I saw it on Fuel tv, remember when Fuel tv was all about surfing now its all about UFC, bring back more surfing Fuel tv.
I rarely see a surf flick I dont like. Sometimes they get a little too artsy and vague for my taste. I like a good sound track, waves getting ripped, and to see the fun side of these surfers lives (in and out of the water).
One that stands out in my mind whenever I think of a good surf flick id definitely, WHO IS J.O.B. ! and all of the rest of the Who IS J.O.B. mini episodes on red bull
Also, I'm sure John John's new flick, "Done" will be way up on the list. Looking forward to that one.
