I watched it on on demand last night for the first time and thought it was a pretty good flick. It showed how tough you have to be to be a surfer rather than the stoned Spicoli stereotype portrayed by the mainstream media. Frosty was a good hardened vet and the kid showed some guts. The surfing scenes were pretty cool and especially the Mavericks shots. It had some of the typical teenage angst stuff, but his girlfriend and the Moms were hot.
agreed as well. just saw it this weekend. good flick and the surf scenes were actually done well, unlike most hollywood surfing scenes, where the wave is breaking to the right and in the middle of the shoot you see the guy shooting through the barrel going left. haha.
Yeh! I just say it a few days ago. Defnately a must own surf movie. Seeing Steamer Lane reminds me when I ws surfing that incredible wave some years ago. What an arena. There was a little bit of the North Shore idea of super surfer master teaching the young one what it takes. And showing real footage and them surfing the actual breaks makes it. If only In Gods Hands wouldve done that with exception to the end when they're surfing Jaws and supposedly Todos.
