    my favorite video (so far) is probably September Sessions. Even though it isn't long, to me, it's one of the best representations of surfing out there. some of the best if not the best surfers of all time going on a boat trip in Indo. To quote Rob, "The waves were as good as waves get." , the soundtrack is amazing, and the monologues by Kelly and Rob are words I will always remember. I love it.

    And for the east coast movies, check out Dark Falls. Its filmed up in Jersey. i hooked up with a chick watching it so you know its gotta be good hahaha

    Yeah, Dark Fall for sure. My one beef with it is that too much of it takes place outside of jersey. The pacific ocean scenes start to drown out the local stuff after a while. Still, it's probably my favorite surf movie, just for the 10 minutes or so they spend on winter.

    I agree with super fish, I don't comment as much as I'd like because of it

    1st movie I ever saw - Shelter. 2nd movie I ever saw - Thicker than water

    I've probably seen around 75 surf movies in my short life, and those two are still my favorite. they represent the spirit of surfing to me the best, and the people in the movie are good people, people that I still look up to. theres great stories in the videos, and I'm always dead silent while watching them. I can also sing every single in each video by heart. Both soundtracks are the most played on my itunes. I 1st saw shelter when I was i think 10? and since then shelter and thicker than water have been so inspirational to me. I'm still waiting to meet friends that are as cool as the guys in those videos.

    Recently, year 0000 blew my mind, a must watch. I enjoy ...lost surf movies like Whats really going wrong and the decline. Julian Wilsons movie Scratching the surface is killer. i wasn't overly stoked over Lost Atlas. You can't go wrong with Campaign 1 and 2, even stranger than fiction. Slaters section in Campaign 2 is still I think the best section in any surf video PERIOD. One track mind and Frame Lines are also good. I find the good in all surf movies really.

    Also, wasn't stoked on Dark Fall. i wanted more East Coast surfing, and honestly Andrew Gesler's voice narrating really annoyed me. He paused like 2 seconds after every damn word!

    Did you really just consider Shelter to be a surf movie! I just spent the last hour and 20 minutes watching this awful film, and I want my minutes back! There is hardly if any surfing in this movie. They show maybe 6 rides and 2 of them are the same clip of a pull in barrel closeout. This movie is about a kid who leaves his hot girlfriend, and ends up banging his best friends brother! Are you fukcing kidding me! In no way am I a ho mophobe, or against gays, but this film is not a surf film at all! I would not reccomend this movie to anyone if you are trying to get hyped for a swell, or looking for a good surf flick. PASS on this joke of a "surf movie"!

    Everyone should see these movies once, no bs or filler, just quality vids: Pump! (young Occy killing it), Green Iguana (more Occy), Searching for Tom Curren, and Bustin Down the Door (although more commentary than some may want), and Seedling. I think they all put newer vids to shame, maybe minus Thicker than Water.

    Like others have said, I was not that impressed with Dark Fall either.
