    I'm going to say easily Surf's Up is the best surf movie. I'm basically Chicken Joe.

    After that definitely Endless Summer 1

    Jim Freeman's The Glass Wall... it predates Endless Summer, and was Freeman's last solo film before hooking up with MacGillavry. Check out the ride at 1:30... pure art.

    Of note is the complete absence of any crowd in such beautiful surf.
    That is how it was when I started surfing--nobody out, no matter how perfect it was breaking.
    Nowadays, it is a ****show of total morons

    That's why I like those old longboard films from the '60s, and like to read books about that era. Let's the imagination run...

    I didn't start until the '70s, but it was still rarely crowded... only on big, clean hurricane swells was there ever a crowd. Your normal, everyday session was usually empty.
