you can't judge Point Break from a surfer's perspective. you must judge it from a non surfer perspective.
and in that case Point Break was a classic mindless hit!
I mean c'mon... Johnny Utah went to law school on a football scholarship. how ridiculous is that statement???
I read an article in Surfer Mag i believe, that had an interview with some of the surfers that were actually there and nobody actually SAW him take a two wave hold down, and that he was fine upon being checked out by a dr., so some believe it was just to hype the movie.
