Dir. Rob Machado and Ian O'Roarty, 2010.
A continuation in both surf and music from Machado's film "The Drifter," this film seems to have more of the feel of a true surf film.
Take "The Drifter" and get rid of the storyline of "drifting" around Bali and "Melali" is what you get. The surf from not only Machado but also Slater, Reynolds, Robb, Dorian, Malloy, Gerber, Losness, and Tanjung, is captivating and the filming it spot on. Where his previous film tries to make the viewer feel as though his life as a pro surfer is so hard that he needs to escape everything to find solitude this one is straight surf. No nonsense, just great surfers on great waves doing.
Throw some great tunes in it and you have one great surf movie. Check it out, and it comes with a bonus CD for those surf checks, or a drive down a back road.
Here you will find reviews of Surf Films, Climbing Films, and others, and maybe even a movie from "Hollywood."Got any suggestions send through Twitter, Facebook or the Contact Page.
