Riding Giants – Blu-ray Edition

This documentary brings us through the phases of American surfing history. More precisely it is the history of big wave surfing. Starting off the story, using mostly amateur shot video clips, director Stacy Peralta gives us some insight into how in the 1950s and 1960s in certain parts of the United States (California and Hawaii, for the most part) surfing fit into the rebellious nature of many young American males. It then moves on to the subsequent decades and interviews or clips of the surfing heroes of those times. Greg Noll, Laird Hamilton and Jeff Clark are featured prominently. The photographs, interviews and video clips will give the watcher an all-encompassing picture of the evolution of surfing.
