    Being a (very) casual surfer, I love a good surfing movie and having recently enjoyed the excellent DVD release of Step Into Liquid I am wondering if there are any similar movies that I have missed.

    At present I have:

    Step Into Liquid
    The Endless Summer
    The Endless Summer 2
    Big Wednesday
    Billanbong Odyssey
    In Gods Hands
    North Shore
    Blue Crush
    Point Break (more an action movie I know but some great surf scenes...)

    and am eagerly awaiting the DVD release of Riding Giants...

    Thanks

    Some of those are quite good. There's not many great surf movies IMO. They seem to have a very bad name. I think it's because most are only about 'surfing' which is a tun off if you don't surf.

    Worth a look:
    Liquid Bridge (On DVD in Australia and Canada)
    Blackrock (Best version is the Australian disc)

    I think Jaws is my favourite surf film :D Seriously, it's Scene at The Sea Not a lot of surfing but it has a great storyline which features a guy who only wants to be a surfer -no matter what. Beautiful film. Best to go for the HK disc. Nice and cheap here

    :offtopic: But you should check out On Any Sunday, its a motorbike documentary directed by the same director as Endless Summer, Bruce Brown, and has a small part with Steve McQueen in it.

    Also if you check out this site DvdBoxOffice there is a DVD available called "The Bruce Brown Golden Years Of Surf Collection"

    If you want to see a great surfing movie, check out "Crystal Voyager" - some stunning cinematography. Don't know if it's on DVD though...

    What about Blue Juice, the British surfing movie staring Sean Pertwee, Ms Zeta Jones and Ewan McGregor. Quite cheap on dvd I belive and quite funny.
