Format: DVD
It's not likely I'll every step onto a surfboard. But I do love to live vicariously. I was able to do that with this 2003 surfing documentary. Splendidly!

Written and directed by Dana Brown, the son of Bruce Brown, who created "The Endless Summer" in 1966 (and who appears in this film), the words that roll out with the opening credits are "No special effects. No stuntmen. No stereotypes". How refreshing!

The sport of surfing has come a long way since it started to become popular in the late 1950s. It was started in Hawaii, of course, hundreds of years ago. It was then, and always has been, purely recreational.

This film is about the pure joy of the sport and this comes through loud and clear in every frame. We see children having a blast. We see professional surfers. We see the fun a group of big beer-bellied guys in Sheboygan Wisconsin have when they put on wet suits and surf the small waves in the muddy waters of Lake Michigan as well as and surfers who actually surf in the waves made by oil rigs in Texas.. We see what is called the "pipeline" in Oahu and watch the experts in serious battle with nature. Here, the surfers know that injury is almost inevitable and they just hope that when it happens it is something that can be fixed. Later, we meet a young man whose neck was broken while surfing. He's paralyzed from the waist down but he still rides a surfboard on his belly.

It must be quite a thrill. And scary. Surfers say they think "I'm gonna die" often. But still they surf.

It's impossible to paddle out to the really big waves. The surfers need a buddy on a "ski tow" for this. This is a dangerous job because the guy on the ski tow has to rescue the surfer when he falls off his board.

This film is perfect. It captures everything that is great about surfing or sports in general for that matter. The best part about the movie is the amazing footage captured on film. There are some shots in the movie that will blow you mind. It is like "Winged Migration" for surfers. The two-disc set has a load of special features like an extensive commentary and deleted scenes which are good to watch. It also includes a version of "Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer" for PC. Thsi is the perfect film and I would recommend it to anyone who has the slightest interest in surfing, documentaries, or athleticism.

I think this is a really good documentary about Surfing. I saw it a number of years ago and just got it on Blu Ray. It is really well done and has some fascinating footage and interviews. So you will definately enjoy it.
The downside is, the transfer to HD on Blu Ray really doesn't add anything. The footage still seemed like it was in Standard. I was hoping the footage would be so much more impressive and lifelike on HD, but it wasn't. There really isn't any advantage to getting this on Blu Ray. Just buy it on DVD and you'll get the same thing.

This movie makes a good first impression, but it's not anything I have to watch again. Ironically, though one of the key points of the movie is not to take surfing (or life) too seriously, the movie takes itself too seriously. Not as funny as Endless Summer I & II, and too many pieces about a very, very small aspect of surfing - Wisconsin AND Texas, the paralyzed, the bring Ireland together bit and Vietnam father/son boding, mixed in with tow-in surfing. The tow-in surf does not come in a cohesive form but is instead scattered througout. It's as if surfing is about nothing but tow-in and using surfing to bring world peace. The meandering style of this movie also renders it useless as surf porn, even on mute.
If you want a real surf movie, that is entertaining to watch and gets to the essence of what surfing is really about without trying too damn hard at it, check out Shelter and Thicker Than Water.
If you're not a surfer and just insterested in what the hub bub is about, Step IL is made for you.

Nice DVD presentation with plenty of extras. Hey, there's even some instructional stuff with Wingnut nonetheless. I really am impressed with everything they piled on to the first disc. But man, they must have guessed that all surfers are computer geeks because you need to be on the NASA matrix grid in order to make that second disc work in your computer. There's a ton of features on the second disc, but I'll have to find someone who's got a totally juiced up box in order to see it. Sorry, I've got a decent computer but nothing near the requirements necessary to view the DVD-ROM disc provided in Step Into Liquid. As far as the movie goes, this is NOT, I repeat NOT the best surf film ever made. That title would belong to Singlefin Yellow, as another review mentioned here. Perfect perspective, perfect music and perfect commentary and a unique story line from all other surfing films. Step into Liquid is good but once again the Brown Family can take some great footage and turn it into somewhat of an annoying experience with the drone of corny jokes and cliche writing. Dana Brown, like father Bruce [the Endless Summer Collection of which Dana assisted on some], simply and plainly should not be narrating this thing. The narration comes way too close to the obnoxious and annoying words of Warren Miller and his tedious and bourgeois narration on skiing and snowboarding films. And I swear to God, I hope I never hear the word "stoke" repeated so often in such a short time frame as spoken in Step Into Liquid. I know Dana Brown was attempting to break down many surfing stereotypes, but his repeated and mindboggling use and reuse of the word "stoke" in this film drives me up the wall. Quite honestly, some of the special features were easier to take than the film because they were devoid of the stiff and starchy narration. Still, Step Into Liquid is quality film making here and should be in the quiver of films of all surfers.
