This was a really nice DVD to watch. Longboarding is as you might have
guessed, surfing on a longboard like a malibu etc. There is such a grace and
skill involved with riding these boards that generates an honest to goodness
emotion in most who watch them.
looks and sounds great and for fans of the sport, myself included, the riders
you'll see on this disc are sensational. The only real gripe I have with the
disc is that that it only runs for a very short amount of time, the flip side
of that is simply that it makes more impact as a result when you watch it.
covers a number of different longboard surfers and offers up opinions on their
styles from their peers. It also takes us to some breathtaking coastlines
along the way.
I would have
to say that this disc really doesn't cover what it says on the slick. It's not
a true longboard documentary, rather it's a great featurette about some of the
surfers on the longboard scene. I might be a stickler here but them's the
facts folks. It's not a doco but it is beautiful in it's own right.
Extras on the
disc include a picture slideshow and also quite a few Madman Propaganda
Trailers. Make sure you check them out as there are quite a few good titles
that I hope to cover for you.
