TO' Day of Days

"TO' Day of Days is the blow by blow account of this history making day in the sport of surfing. Not only was the worlds greatest big wave surfer on hand to ride the "heaviest wave ever ridden" (Surfer Mag), the worlds greatest surfing cinematographer was there to record what happened. Jack McCoy's documentary is unlike Laird's personal DVD LAIRD (of which footage from this day is included). TO' is the complete story of this epic surfing trip. The film follows Lairds first trip to Tahiti with his tow surfing, longboarding, foil surfing, the warm up, and concludes with the Day of Days. I personally showed this program around Australia as a Surfrider fundraiser to hundreds of surfers and non surfers alike who were in awe of Lairds amazing feat and McCoy's storytelling. You can show this to anyone and they will be rivited. On top of that the Special Features section has another 50 minutes of extra material. By far the most awsome footage of Laird doing what he does in found in the short film in this section called "The Morning Glass". The underwater bodysurfing sequence is some of the most amazing surfing footage ever taken. Along with the other bonus shorts "Aftershock", interviews with Laird and DD and a Midnight Oil track, this DVD is a must for anyone who can appreciate extreme sport's and the ocean."

"I feel so ripped off. I think the name should have been "Two" because your paying $2 for every minute of film. The movie itself was honestly about twenty minutes long and don't let them fool you with the side movies. EVERY SINGLE ONE was the same audio and video just edited in different ways(video montage, music video, bla bla) Also, the whole DVD focused on "two" waves which weren't even that big; like 30 feet. Bigger than I could ever handle but I would've rather seen the 70 foot waves that Laird talks about and that can be seen in other videos. Oh wait, they showed one for "two" seconds. The cinematography was good and Laird is a legend, but I was extremely disappointed in this DVD and you will be "two" if you're hoping to see some giant waves."

"This film just blew me away, I don't know what that last review was all about but this is the most increadble surf film I have ever seen. Great story and great depth. The Doco is not that long (28 minutes) but it does have extra fooatge which is worth a look. Best surf film ever!!!!!!"
