Even with the finest surf films I find myself weary of certain sections or riders. I suppose this echoes my surfing interests. The Present was chock full of surfing I loved, liked, and some I'd have just assumed not watch. Highlights for me were the immaculate water shots of Indonesian barrels (courtesy of Mike Stewart I believe), the unbelievable vibe of the "first ascent" on the African oasis, and the comedy skit. I could've left half of the alai'a stuff on the cutting room floor. It's cool but just not my cup.

Above is a little teaser I unearthed at Sway's. Steve Cleveland of Another State of Mind looks to have something fun in the works.

Can you guess what surfing might not be my favorite? You got it, the try-hard superman air on a 9' board- blah!

Push- did you see his first movie? It was a CJ Nelson homage of sorts. I dig Cleveland's music choices- Fugazi (I believe) was nice in this trailer.

Yup - Fugazi "TurnOver", leadoff track on "Margin Walker." That is THE song, and THE tape, I'd have blaring in my old subaru wagon on the way down to the oceanfront - age 17. Great times. Great song.
