GO FOR IT! 1976
U.S. Film. Letterbox format. Narrated by Ron Gans. Extreme sports meets midnight movie with a film that showcases wild surfing and skateboarding madness! Awesome surfing footage with Larry Bertleman and skateboarding with Tony Alva.
Lots of "shooting the curl!" Some of these surfers look like they're falling 25 feet straight down a cliff of water, but they stay on the board and have a thrilling ride. Incredible wipeout footage!
Intermixed with high-action surf and skate sequences the participants discuss why they do it and how it feels, looks and sounds. There's footage from the Hang Ten American Pro Surfing Championship and an explanation of the scoring system.
Terrific footage from the Ventura, California 1975 skateboard championships. Footage from the Women's International Surfing championships. With their low-riding bikinis you see some butt crack footage! :) Surfing during Malibu's September swell of 1975. Footage from Hawaii, Japan, California, French Riviera.
There's a mid-70's guitar rock soundtrack which is pretty good—but it would be better with early 60s surf music. Turn the sound down and slap on a record! Ron Gans, Shaun Tomson, Becky Benson, Larry Bertleman, Tony Alva, Peter Fonda. Go For It!
Plus this bonus selection...
THE FRONT LINE 1965
U.S. Industrial film from the Super Market Institute. A lush color examination of the marvel of the "modern supermarket." The modern conveyor belt! Sorry no bar codes or price scanners. The checkers are maestros of their huge NCR registers. There's a "Checker of Year" award.
