For those who already finished all the movies from the first part of the list, or just didn’t find the kind of movie they were looking for, here’s the second part with 15 more movies and a bonus one just available for the next 3 days.

The list, again, doesn’t follow any particular order since they all are great pieces of art. 

We hope you enjoy the following flicks as much as we did.

SELF DISCOVERY FOR SOCIAL SURVIVAL

(BONUS) SDFSS is Chris Gentile’s newest full-length which we just had the pleasure to watch and automatically had to add to this list. 

This exquisite movie is a collaborative film between the record label Mexican Summer and the surf brand Pilgrim Surf which perfectly blends the music from great bands such as Allah-Las, Connan Mockasin, Andrew VanWyngarden of MGMT and Peaking Lights with outstanding images from Stephanie Gilmore, Creed McTaggart, Ryan Burch +and many more incredible surfers in three separate vignettes: Mexico, The Maldives & Iceland. 

A must see movie which will be available for free just for the next 3 days.

THE HEART AND THE SEA

We already expressed the love we feel for Byron Bay-based filmmaker Nathan Oldfield, but we feel like telling you once again. Oldfield  has a knack for telling visual stories around surfing’s current avant-garde. And his 2012 film, The Heart and the Sea is no different. With a cast of recognizable characters on alternative craft ranging from alaias to retro fishes to logs, the film personifies the joys of building a life around the ocean. Shot in Australia, New Zealand, France & Spain it even features some of our local brakes and all time friends. Another MUST SEE in this list.

RIDING GIANTS

Directed and narrated by Stacy Peralta, Riding Giants‘ most iconic scene documents Laird Hamilton whipping into a wave at Teahupo’o (later dubbed the “Oh My God” wave) that would redefine concepts of what’s possible in big wave surfing overnight. The experience moved Hamilton to tears.

GLASS LOVE

Glass Love is a beautiful surfing film which shows all those who see it why surfing is the greatest sport of them all. Featured are some of the most important surfers of the last 30 years including Tom and Pat Curren, Wayne Lynch, Michael Peterson (MP), Rabbit Bartholomew, Skip Frye, Oscar Wright and Derek Hynd.

ONE CALIFORNIA DAY

A visual journey through 6 distinct coastal regions, capturing the California surfing experience through the surfers who live it. Shot in super 16mm film, the movie examines the variety of subtle differences that make California so unique.

THE DRIFTER

A beautifully shot, emotionally resonant film, «The Drifter» documents this major turning point in Rob Machado’s life, during which he comes full circle and ready to take on the next phase in a career in where he’s blazed a path and sealed his legacy as not only one of the world’s most stylish surfing ambassadors, but as a true humanitarian.

CASTLES IN THE SKY

Global surfing adventures take director Taylor Steele to Iceland, Peru, India and Africa in a whirlwind tour of coastlines and majestic waves featuring surfers like Dane Reynolds, Rob Machado, Dave Rastovich and Jordy Smith. Castles is arguably Taylor’s best travel film and you will understand why when you see it. A masterpiece.

UNDER AN ARCTIC SKY

From the creative mind of Chris Burkard, Under An Arctic Sky rekindles the adventurous spirit of surf exploration that exists in every highly-acclaimed surf film for the modern era. A crew consisting of Burkard, Timmy Reyes, Justin Quintal, and more travel to Iceland during a once-in-a-blue-moon storm looking for surf along its frigid fjörds.

ANDY IRONS: KISSED BY GOD

Shook. That’s the only thing to feel after watching this detailed look into the life and untimely death of Andy Irons. 

Andy Irons: Kissed by God is a film about bipolar disorder and opioid addiction as seen through the life of three-time world champion surfer Andy Irons. Andy struggled with the same demons that millions of people worldwide battle with daily. Andy was an incredible presence on the world stage as the “People’s Champion.” He was the pride of Hawaii and revered around the world for his blue collar rise to fame and success. However, many were unaware of his internal battles that led to his demise. As the opioid crisis rises to a national emergency in the United States, the untold story of Andy’s life serves to tear down the myths associated with these two ferocious diseases.

LIGHTNING BOLT – A PURE SOURCE

A 17-minute doc outlining the legacy of one of the greatest surfboard brands in history, produced a few years back by videographer Tahnei Roy, A Pure Source narrates the complete story from Gerry Lopez & Jack Shipley’s brand, which dominated the market in the early 70s.

HEADACHE

An eight month wave search across Scotland, Denmark and Iceland. Headache is an exquisite surf film directed by the talented Felix Gänsicke and featuring the German crew Binsurfen, which not only shows the high level of the German surfing, but as well their hunger for new adventures in places where not everyone would be capable to surf at. 

INAIPPU

Did you, as well as us, finish the teaser with goosebumps?

Director’s Loïc Wirth: 

Inaippu (இணைப்பு) breaths for reconnection. As much as we believe we can go far away from nature, the ever so simple things in life will always bring our hearts back to where we’re really from, if we’re open to it.

I believe surfing can work as a bridge for that reconnection… A group of surfers/friends who share those same feelings joined into travels to discover new waves and try to translate those ideas into film. Those surfers are:

ANALOG: NOW

Before Chippa Wilson was a household name, and a few years prior to Burton shuttering its Analog label in surf and skate, Riley Blakeway brought the previously underground talents of one of the world’s most progressive aerialists to the fore. Almost a decade later, Chippa’s surfing then will still cause you to scratch your head.

LEAVE A MESSAGE

Once upon a time Nike was fully involved in surfing with that special label dedicated to extreme sports only called Nike 6.0. During that time they recruited some of the best surfers in the world and created great stuff like this movie which would become (probably) the greatest female-only surf movie till the day. A five stars cast: Carissa Moore (Hawaii), Lakey Peterson (USA), Laura Enever (Australia), Coco Ho (Hawaii), Byrne-Wickey Monyca (Hawaii) and Malia Manuel (Hawaii) and some of the best brakes in the world. 

BILLABONG TRILOGY

Talk about a flick that undoubtedly killed countless VHS players from being rewound to death. Taylor Steele’s Billabong-supported action flick of its top three team riders at the time, Andy Irons, Joel Parkinson, and Taj Burrow, is a testament to fast, progressive surfing in the below-the-knee boardshorts era.

POINT BREAK

A band of adrenaline junkies that rob banks being infiltrated by a former football star turned F.B.I. agent that must learn to surf to seamlessly join their ranks? The premise sounds corny as hell but Point Break (the original) continues to be a cult classic among surfers and is arguably Hollywood’s best effort in avoiding the countless pitfalls it often falls victim to when telling a story related to surfing (you can take as an example the remake of this movie).
