Lowest new price: $4.95
Lowest used price: $1.26
List price: $19.99
From its early Hawaiian roots to its current status as a recreational lifestyle enjoyed worldwide, bigwave surfing is given the definitive exploration by acclaimed director Stacy Peralta (Dogtown and Z-Boys).
Riding Giants is more than another blissfulsurfing movie. It's an outstanding documentary about one era in American alternative lifestyles, when surfing was well-suited to a radical culture of social dropouts. Using an amazing array of amateur film clips, shot for the most part in Hawaii and California from the late 1950s and early '60s, director Stacy Peralta traces the rise of surfing's appeal to young men looking to test themselves in an unorthodox (and sexy) milieu--of "living life to the fullest," as former surfer-turned-screenwriter John Milius (Big Wednesday) puts it at one point. Lengthy chapters on the glories of Oahu's Makaha and the "superstition and dread" that accompanied the big-wave challenge of Waimea Bay are riveting and sometimes heroic, particularly told through the memories of surf legend Greg Noll. Great material, too, about the deadly wonders of surfing Mavericks, California, where the rocks will get one if the violent tides don't. --Tom Keogh

|Step into Liquid
Lowest new price: $4.63
Lowest used price: $0.74
List price: $14.98
From the makers of "The Endless Summer", this story is told through the voices of legends, pros and everyday surfers alike. It is not just a film for surfers, but for anyone with an appreciation for sport and an inkling of what it means to be "stoked".
Thanks to Dana Brown's delightful Step Into Liquid, the surfing scene in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, should get a healthy boost. That's because Brown, in the tradition of his father, filmmaker Bruce Brown (The Endless Summer), has captured dazzling images of surfers riding curls in some of the world's most exotic--and sometimes unlikely--places. Besides the action on Lake Michigan, Brown leads us to Costa Rica, where the sport's senior elite (including Summer star Robert August) prove they still have the moves, and Oahu's North Shore, where the legendary Pipeline inspires this quote: "It's so scary, maybe you die a little." Most entertaining is a segment in County Donegal, where the American Malloy brothers startle the locals and meet their Irish counterparts on the grayest ocean imaginable. Great personal stories here, including the tale of Northern California's Dale Webster, who has never missed a day on the waves in 30 years. --Tom Keogh

Experience One of the Longest Waves Ever Filmed From Inside the Barrell!
In the world of surfing, there exists a group of elite surfers whose sole mission in life is to surf the unknown. From California to Australia, surfers have marked up the map with legendary surf spots, which over the years have become polluted and overcrowded. But this elite group is constantly hunting for untapped waves. Searching across the globe, they have come to the islands of Indonesia, where the most consistent world-class waves can be found around every bend. However, to reach the perfect waves on The Forgotten Coast, an extreme physical and mental journey is required. Join Brian Conley, Travis Potter, Daniel Thomson, Micah Byrne, Brett Schwartz, Brandon Tipton and Ben Knight, seven of the world's best surfers as they experience the travel, the adventure and the purest waves on earth!
Special Features include: Commentary Track with Travis Potter and Director Justin LePera; Exclusive Interview with Surfer Brian Conley; The Forgotten Coast Screensaver; Photo Gallery by Brian Nevins, Jeff Dolen; Deleted Scenes
For many surfers, the notion of "going feral" is associated mainly with azure blue waves breaking on powdered sandy beaches. It is the casting aside of everyday monotonies for the pursuit of point-break excellence. The Forgotten Coast fuels this romantic ideal, as the exotic locales, glassy sets, and empty lineups are the stuff of wave-riding fantasy. However, it also documents the less-publicized realities of surf exploration that so often escape our daydreams. The intrepid crew of Travis Potter, Brian Conley, Daniel Thomson, Micah Byrne, Brandon Tipton, Brett Schwartz, and Ben Knight encounter sketchy boat captains, hellacious weather, nasty infections, and more as they seek out the finest waves Indonesia has to offer. Proving that it takes much more than just a quiver of boards to make a boat trip, these surfing nomads explore the unexplored by relying on each other and respecting the kindness of locals. It's not always glamorous, but the payback of pristine surf makes the journey worthwhile. --Dave Callanan

|Bustin' Down the Door
Lowest new price: $2.01
Lowest used price: $0.76
List price: $14.98
Brand: Gaiam Americas
This ground breaking action-packed documentary takes you back to the winter of 1975 in Hawaii -a dramatic moment in history when a group of young South African and Australian surfers sacrificed everything. They put it all on the line to create a sport, a culture, and an industry that is today worth billions of dollars and has captured the imagination of the world. A powerhouse film, the spell-binding action footage and fascinating subjects make Bustin' Down the Door a surfing classic.
In the early 1970s, Australian chargers Mark Richards, Peter Townend, Ian Cairns, and Wayne "Rabbit" Bartholomew landed in Oahu with something to prove. Hawaii was seen as the center of the surfing universe and the brash Aussies sought to shake things up. Along with South Africans Shaun and Michael Tomson, the crew ripped apart legendary breaks like Pipeline and Waimea with radical innovations and bravery that bordered on insanity. Combining classic footage and revealing modern-day interviews, Bustin' Down the Door exposes the soul of this revolutionary period in a way few surf films can. The ground-breaking talents of MR and Co. are rightfully lauded for helping to build the concept of professional surfing, yet no excuses are offered for the reckless arrogance that helped ignite a powder keg of cultural pride on the North Shore. The self-promoting Australians were not shy about their talents, but by the time Cairns declared that "Aloha is dead" during the summer of '75, competitive banter had dangerously escalated beyond the waves. But what the group lacked in diplomacy, they made up for in determination, as their shared desire to be the best gave rise to a new era of surfing. --Dave Callanan
