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.Read more ›
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.
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.
