Riding Giants

Riding Giants (****)

I had heard good things about this movie, so I was eager to get it from Netflix before it went on "long wait". What a great movie. It takes the viewer through the history of surfing--from the early Hawaiians and the pre-Gidget era, to post-Gidget present day.

An indepth look at legendary and influential surfers like Laird Hamilton, Greg Noll, and Jeff Clark with great footage, interviews, and surfer stories told by the guys who were there. I was particularly interested in the story of Mavericks and Jeff Clark. Jeff surfed Mavericks alone for 15 years. Can you imagine?

Rent this one.


  • Awesome, thanks for the suggestion. I'll be sure to check it out.
