For today’s blog I would like to highlight an amazing surf movie available in DVD or digital download. Way of the Ocean: Australia explores “the connection between man and the sea” in a country devoted to the ocean lifestyle where surfing is more than a way of life.
The movie by Matt Kleiner, written by Tim Hawken and Matt Kleiner, stars well known surfers such as: Asher Pacey, Josh Kerr, Dane Reynolds, Adam Robertson, Taj Burrow, Craig Anderson, Jordy Smith, and Kelly Slater surfing different spots throughout the land of Oz from the Great Barrier Reef to the western desert region. With a lineup with of surfing talent as this, and the breathtaking Australian backdrop of some of the best surf spots on the planet this film certainly delivers in both cinematography and surf footage. This film is actually the first of a five part series by Circulate Motion Pictures, and you can check out the trailer at Way of the Ocean – Trailer II.
I have been to Australia several times, but never surfed there. Such a shame. After watching the movie I am motivated to go back, this time with the intent of surfing some of the spots highlighted on the film. Of course that typically takes lots of money, or does it?
