4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, but slow Sept. 2 2008
By Kevin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Interesting documentary about the surf "gang" in Australia. Gives some history on how they became who they are. Just keep in mind that you are getting a documentary and NOT a "surf flick".

Theres definately some nice footage and a great segment on the place called "ours".

Don't expect to watch this and get amped to paddle out. You're more likely to learn how to respect locals when you paddle out someplace new.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Big Surprise Nov. 22 2009
By Jaimal Yogis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I bought this film in Bali thinking it would be purely entertaining and pretty bad as a documentary. It's pretty rare that surf documentaries also have good stories and frankly, I just wanted to see surf footage of "Ours", the insanely dangerous, hollow reef break in Sydney that the Bra Boys were the first to surf. Turns out, it's a great film and not because of the surf footage (although that's awesome too). The film follows the three Aberton brothers (one of them, Coby Aberton, a top-ranked big-wave surfer) growing up in a rough eastern suburb in Sydney that happens to also be on a killer surf break. (The area has since been gentrified, but 20 years ago it was legitimately poor and working class.) With a strung out mom and no dad, the Aberton brothers turned to the beach and their friends for guidance, forming a tight-knit surf gang called the Bra Boys. The Bra Boys are a scrappy bunch who are constantly at war with the surfers from neighboring breaks and generally getting into mischief, but in the end, surfing and the pride they have for their neighborhood help them rise above and basically become good guys who want to help the youth and their community. Since the film was made by the Aberton brothers themselves, you can't help but think it's sort of an attempt to clear any trash talking about them (the Bra Boys gang has been caught up in all sorts of criminal activity) but that doesn't make the film any less entertaining. It's also an insightful look into why surfing is so territorial. I really, really enjoyed this film. Oh, and you also get to see these guys surf "The Cyclops", probably the most dangerous wave on the planet. It's sick.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Wave as Nurturer May 22 2008
By R. J MOSS - Published on Amazon.com
A bumper flick! Took me utterly by surprise, especially as I have next to no affection for the sea or surfing. Russell Crowe narrates a short history, since settlement, of the bay where entrenched working class aspirations have been enacted for the most part of the last century. Crowe's authorial voice is no coincidence as several Bra Boys play for his football club, The Rabbitos. He confers the right tone of tough, resigned affection for his subject. The pacing and editing of the film is perfect; archival footage, home doco, mugs shots of the main players in a blackened studio, and some of the most impressive surfing footage I've seen. Never have I been so convinced of the powerful attraction of the wave. It's a character in its own right, brilliantly elucidated by the Bra Boys. Their story, and one realises that many if not most of the 200 or so members have similar tales, drives the film. It's a story of survival through brotherhood whose power in unity withstands poverty and oppression ftrom all comers. The film doesn't shirk any of the tough guy stuff that has been the usual, one-dimensional perception of the gang. And there is almost a total absence of feminity. Yet the essential goodness and humanity of the lead actors(playing themselves) is very heartening and will open understanding to a much maligned sub-culture of Australian life.

This is just a cool documentary that I bought for my uncle. We both love surfing flicks and just wanted to add this to the collection. Pretty cool! Check it out!
3.0 out of 5 stars Okay, good if you're already stoked about Australian surf culture or the Bra Boys Dec 14 2013

Moderately entertaining with nice surf footage. I can imagine that if I were Australian or previously familiar with material I would have found the film more engaging. It felt like the filmmakers assumed the viewer knew the outcome of suspenseful situations to start. Also, for reasons I don't understand, the video image appeared to be low quality on our screen, as if pixelated or fuzzy. As compared with other of my favorite sports docs, like those on ESPN 30x30 or HBO Real Sports, this falls below the grade.
