Mick Fanning and Kelly Slater - Australian pro surfer Mick Fanning was attacked by a shark measuring 4-5 metres in length at the finals of the J-Bay Samsung Galaxy Open today (19Jun15). The shark bit through Fanning's leash, dragging him under water in front of a packed beach of spectators and fans. Fanning, ranked number 2 in world surfing this year, was waiting for his first wave of the finals against Australian surfer, Julian Wilson. Both surfers were immediately evacuated from the water and competition was stopped. This is world's first incident of a shark attack during an international surfing contest. Many of the best surfers in the world, including Gabriel Medina and Kelly Slater were in the same waters moments earlier. - Cape Town, South Africa - Sunday 19th July 2015

Bustin' Down The Door Review


Good
Clearly designed to give credit where it's due, this film spotlights the guys who broke new ground to create modern surfing. But while it's an important, interesting document, it's rather too detailed for non-surfers.

Surfers from Hawaii and California honed their craft on some of the best waves in the world on Oahu's North Shore. Then in the 1970s, a group of guys from Australia and South Africa arrived to challenge the classic surfing style.

Centring on five pioneers (Townend, Shaun Thomson, Bartholomew, Richards and Cairns), this doc tells their stories as they pushed boundaries and fought for respect as professional sportsmen. And the hardest to win over were fellow surfers.

Step Into Liquid Review


Very Good
Step Into Liquid, a documentary about the various forms that surfboarding takes around world, is a visually stunning enterprise - it has more in it to wow viewers than whatever it is Jerry Bruckheimer's blowing up this summer. But in following a few dozen surfers who are driven by their often reckless obsessions, it lacks much in the way of deep insight, which leaves it falling short of great documentary filmmaking. On the other hand, what it lacks in human detail is more than made up for in its constant, jawdropping shots of massive waves climbing, cycling, and spraying for 90 minutes. Plan your pre-show soft drink purchases accordingly.

Writer-director Dana Brown clearly had a blast burning through the film's travel budget. From Hawaii to Vietnam to Easter Island, his crew captures some gorgeous footage of surfers at play (or at work, depending on how you look at it). Regardless of where he travels, surfers world-wide all share a childlike wonder at how much fun they get to have in the water. Off the coast of Galveston, Texas, Brown follows a group who find pleasure in surfing on the wakes of the massive supertankers that pass through; in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, he discovers a group of decidedly un-buff men cruising the modest tides of Lake Michigan, offering surfer-dude talk in Midwestern accents.
