NetFlix Movie: Riding Giants - 4/20/2005

Riding Giants (2004) is a must see movie, plain and simple. This documentary about the history of big wave surfing is an incredible journey into the lives of men who risk their lives for fun. Directed by Stacy Peralta, who was a skateboard star back in the day, Riding Giants takes us deep into the historical elements of the beginning of modern surfing. After watching this movie you will love larger than life characters like Laird Hamilton and Greg Noll.

Granted, the reason why I put this movie into our NetFlix que was because of my fondness for surfing and the surfing culture. However, this movie goes way beyond "hanging ten" and takes you along for a historical journey with awesome visuals and interesting facts. Riding Giants should be seen for the amazing footage of the best and worst mother nature has to offer at the very least.

Just see it!

Kieran Rating: 5 stars (out of 5)
