Yea that was a cool flick but at that time there was so much going on with the evolution of boards, surfing & photography...   The Aussies were coming on strong & it just seemed like every movie was better than the last better waves surfing & music....

It is a classic - I remember when I was young I was excited by 'Crystal Voyager' (Greenough) - left a lasting impression.

When I was a kid I had a bootleg of a bootleg vhs copy of it.
Then when it was officially released as a vhs I got a copy.
I haven't gotten the deluxe dvd version they realeased a few years ago yet but when I do I forsee many a snowy night watching it. I love surf films period but the ones from, say, '69- '76 are the ones I watch over and over and over again.
I just let a friend borrow The Innermost limits of Pure Fun by g.g....he said he's gonna "get baked and watch that shit" hahahaha...

yer striking a nerve Scott

man i lived for the newest surf flick each year
our scene was a boardwalk 'civic center', a dusty old tin shed about the size of a basketball court and they'd show a couple 16mm diy's and then the latest surf/skate films every year end of July, beginning of August
even though it was hottern' hell in there there was always a constant snow storm of air-borne popcorn to make it feel a little closer to a snow globe, not
everybody had a skateboard and we mostly rode them inside from when they let us in until they forcibly kicked us out after every reel had been shown
that was huge for me, never went to a prom but man i went to every single surf film night
seriously fun memories, in fact that was how this east-coaster actually made my connection with the real world .... you know so cal and d-town and MR and Shaun and Gerry etc....

i guess i'll always be a follower

morning of the earth was one of those films i saw back then and i haven't seen it since, thanks much for the memory jog

As a young haole, Kiamaki (sp?) theater was the lions den but worth the danger to see Super Sessions. Free Ride at the brand new Pearl Ridge theater was most memorable as well.

I used to spend alot of time scouring closeout sales for vhs surf/skate flicks.
I found Go For It for 3 clams at one in Dover, Delaware one time.
About 5 years ago one of my "friends" sold it on ebay for heroin money.
Dick.
that was a fun little flick. If I remember correctly didn't some of the skating footage get recycled in stacy's documentary?

lox..........I'm with you. I feel fortunate that Erin & I have been together long enough that she got to share that experience with me. There are no words to describe the feeling of sitting in a small, dark auditorium with a bunch of people after a day of surfing/skating and hearing the hooting at the first slow motion tube ride flowing across the screen. Gives me goosebumps NOW! Yowza!



.........'ya know.......I think that's why I enjoy seeing the photos from Jeff, Colin, Moscow & crew so much. Looks like the same vibe.......

September Sessions,  and Sprout are more modern but superb none the less. Modern Collective is really cool for a contemporary flick (ask CO about the soundtrack)

Bali High is a older favorite.

yeah he sold a bunch of my shit for his habit....boards, boards, magazines, old toys, vinyl, ....long ass story but it was not awesome.

Wavemagnet...Sprout is good. All three of t.c.'s movies are good actually. My favorite of the three is The Seedling. Good shit.
How 'bout Litmus? anyone dig that one? It's got that 70's vibe to it which I like. The Derek Hynd segment is pretty cool. I'd like to have 12 hours to pick that guys brain. Wayne Lynch too.

Chasing the Lotus is one of my favorites, also the one about the history of Pipeline. I think SP does some commentary in it.
