Join Kanoa Igarashi as he takes an 11 minute and 38 second break from pro surfing to review surf movies, naturally. While reviewing classics like Blue Crush, Point Break and Lords of Dogtown, he also raves about the stunt doubles, drops his jaw at a few waves, discusses technique as well as surf terms like: Sloppy seconds, party waves, ‘hitting the pier’, localism, and that underwater rock-running is actually the best surf cardio training you can do - all extremely important things to note if you ever want to take your waves off-screen.
Besides Igarashi being the human version of a golden retriever, the best part about his reviews is that he hasn’t really seen any of the movies - besides Surf’s Up, which, if you live under a rock, is the renowned fictional surf-penguin mocumentary. As per mine and his recommendation, start there (it’s the most realistic). Happy watching!
