This movie was a Poorly edited train wreck.

I was really looking forward to seeing this movie. I watched the trailer on Youtube and thought it should be excellent and was so incredibly let down. Why McCoy thought a general audience would be interested in the "Me & My Friends Show" - how lame. It was supposed to be about Hawaiian Surf evolution and surfboard evolution, but between stupid chat time with McCoy and his friends and his grand premiere in Hawaii there wasn't time to do even a basic stab at what he said the movie would be about. For McCoy's 25th surf movie, he made mistakes even beginning surf film makers quickly avoid. The four separate movie sequences within a movie being the biggest editing mistake next to reusing footage over and over. McCoy has to be embarrassed by this, he's done some good work in the past. I wouldn't recommend this movie even as a dollar rental. The premise was a good one, but the execution was a train wreck.

a must see surf film by jack Mccoy

I thought it was a great surf film but thought the intro interview and sitting around chatting was kinda of awkward and took too long. I came to watch a surf movie and not a lot of talk although some was interesting. The movie is very good with showing the history of surfing and the detailed history of surfboard progression. it was good to see jack johnson playing music at the end of the movie and very fitting. I am sure on dvd or blue ray you can just jump into the movie and then if you want, go check out all the extra scenes and interviews at your own leisure.

Long Intro but Cool Film

Had a terrible experience... The sound kept glitching and the screen would freeze. There was a family behind me of extremely talkative kids and mom; the kids kept running and jumping around... That being said, I think the movie would be pretty cool to watch at home. The intro was a little long and because of all glitches and commotion behind me it was hard to get into the slow introduction. But once it comes out on DVD it may be worth another chance.

First issue was the time spent in the beginning with the film maker. Spent 30 minutes showing scenes from the premier in HI and chit chatting with some of the film 'stars'. Poor interviews, poor editing, poor use of my time. The film itself was just OK for a surf movie. It was more a movie to star his buddies rather than a surf documentary that it was sold to be. Soundtrack was great but not available online and the website gives the bands, but not the song names. So the artists are going to lose out on additional exposure and revenue.
