THURS­DAY RID­ING GIANTS

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

9.30PM, SBS2 ★★★

Cut­ting smoothly be­tween ex­cit­ing archival se­quences and colour­ful talk­ing-head rec­ol­lec­tions, this im­pres­sive surf­ing doc­u­men­tary chron­i­cles three dis­tinct phases in the evo­lu­tion of big-wave rid­ing. An ex­cit­ing and fas­ci­nat­ing se­cret history, mag­ni­fy­ing a mar­ginal pas­time into some­thing ev­ery­one can draw in­spi­ra­tion from. The best work so far of the great Stacy Peralta, di­rec­tor of Dogtown and Z-Boys. Surf nuts will rel­ish the up-close footage of the swells at big-wave hotspots such as Cal­i­for­nia’s Mav­er­ick Beach and Hawaii’s Waimea Bay.
