Befriending the Ferocious Ocean

Myths and legends have plenty of adventure stories on man exploring the unfriendly ocean. In real life, fisherman, explorers, divers, lighthouse workers, and navigators have attempted to fathom the mysteries of the Seven Seas. But befriending the ferocious 80 foot waves on a surf board, with no protection, is reserved for a selected, courageous few who risk their lives every time they choose to ride the waves. This amazing program gives the audience a first-hand graphic look at their oceanic experiences. The photography is spectacular. For those who are interested in the history of surfing, there is a lot of it here, with the surfers themselves narrating their accounts and challenges in a simple style even non-surfers can understand. These surfers are dare-devils and eccentrics who seem to have a need to thrive on danger. They have some amazing anecdotes to share. This is a wonderful program. One need not know the first thing about surfing to enjoy the thrill of this show.
