This is a pretty good list of surf movies that are worth watching. Not sure that they are the best surf movies of all time. They haven’t included Riding Giants (which I really liked) or the equally awesome, but slightly cheesy Point Break.
Not seen all of these yet, but certainly going to get around to them at some point this year.
If you can get over some of the bullshit these guys say in these films then you can sit back and enjoy the gnarly moves and beautiful cinematography. Really worth a few hours of your life on a Sunday afternoon.
