    it's like surfing porn vs. art, the former containing ****ty music set to guys boosting airs for an hour = boring surf smut.

    give me something aesthetically pleasing with good music. don't wanna hear your 'bros' 'sweet' garage band that sucks set to the same 3 guys doing airs and giving the finger. 'badass'
    I heard The Present was good I still gota get that

    i dont know about skate movies...but I really like Teton Gravity Research for snowboarding movies. They made a surf movie too -- Out There -- but it wasnt all that.

    Maybe its cuase im 30....but i get kind of annoyed at movies that hype up the partying over the surfing. I get it. Surfers (or snowboarders) are "cool" and like to get ****ed up, but that has nothing to do with the sport.

    Similarly, the Drive Thru stuff pisses me off sometimes because it is so much about the "personalities." Too often, they will pull up to a spot that's going off and the guys might freak out about how gnarly some right is peeling. Rather than showing us the wave that is causing them to freak out, the camera stays focused on the guys as they freak out about the wave.

    I'm with matt johnson on this one eastern exp. 3 and the sub zero videos were outstanding. Also one of the best skate videos in the last 15 years has to be stereo's a visual sound. The best east coast snowboard videos has to be the eastern edge series. Surf videos I m kind of partial to documentry style ie.. far shore, endless summer 1 and 2. My all time favorite surf vids has to be wave warriors 4.

    yeah i dont care what everyone thinks of the endless summers, but i can watch them repeatedly. maybe because it makes me so pumped up to ride epic waves, but still i just love the whole aspect. i think them and riding giants make up for the lack of the movies, in my personal opinion. those movies never get old for me

    dude i've seen both Endless Summer movies soo many times, i lost count years ago. True Epics if there ever were ones.

    Thomas Campbell is also sick, seen a couple of his movies listed above.... and Jack Johnson's "September Sessions" is amazing too.

    Idk what this ass clown is talking about, there are some awesome surf movies of the last decade or so.

    too much hipster/alex knost/alia footage for my taste. alias are cool & all, but i feel like half the movie is dedicated to them. some of the stuff in that film is undoubtedly amazing tho.

    litmus is still the single best surf fim of the last 15+ years, tho. w/out that one, there would be no moonshine conspiracy, no thomas campbell, etc...the footage of curren & wayne lynch alone earn it the top spot. add in the joel fitzgerald segment & it blows the doors off of everything else.

    In my opinion, if surf movie doesn't have section of heaving, spitting barrels, and guys charging them, it's not worth watching. I'd watch epic barrels over epic airs anyday, although in Modern Collective, those airs where fricken insane! But I can't stand watching little foot-high flicks, I'd rather see power gouges.
