Say no to surfer Joe

"hey - subject matter...great... we all love surfing. However this is a really REALLY amateur production. Graphics are pixellated and illegible, sound is terrible, some instructors not miked up so they are shouting, others over balanced so it is distorted. Everyone on it is 40, and older. They have managed to make surfing look really boring, and unattractive. Surfer Joe is the worst animation ever seen... looks like it was done at home by the kid next door on his spectrum computer... THIS dvd should not be this price, and not on Amazon, it is a hobby project. I would definately say don't buy it! (at half the price)"
No thong bikinis, but great instruction and oceanography

"This DVD has all the stuff that's really hard to learn when you're just learning how to surf. The oceanography part includes info that's hard to find and you probably don't know unless you studied physics. I really appreciated that the instruction and all the information was substantial -- everybody knows that surfing is fun, but it's also can be really hard. This video really helps you understand what's goin' on: in the oceanography part I liked going back and forth between motion graphics and film of the ocean and surfers. The quality of the film and the sound (groovy sound track) and the professionalism and experience of the surfers featured in the DVD is way beyond the average surf instructor. I haven't seen any instructional surfing DVD with this much info! Nothing compares with this one."
This DVD should be in every library

"I've been surfing for years and bought this DVD for my kids; ended up watching the whole thing with them. The oceanography and the section about surfboards was very informative; might have been a bit too much info for the kids at this point, but they can always go back to it. The surf instruction was very thorough and instructive of how to be safe in the water. I would have loved it if all the footage had been shot in Hawaii or Tahiti, but the reality is that my kids won't be surfing perfect waves for a long time, and most of us spend most of time surfing less than perfect waves. Works for me, and I highly recommend it."

"I've never surfed before and I found the oceanography very interesting. It helped me learn the way the ocean works and gets you to really understand--I never knew there was so much to learn about surfing. I especially loved the way the video went between the graphics and the ocean. The more I watch the video the more I understand, and not only does it give great instruction, it also holds a lot of good scientific value. Not only did I enjoy it, my parents did too, as well as my two younger nephews. Part 2 really shows you how to get out there and start surfing, it's really motivational.
Not to mention, the music is just as great as the video too."
