Definitely aimed at teenage girls

"I was worried that it would be aimed at the young, non-surfing Blue Crush crowd, but the Surfer Mag quote on the back ("Every girl, no matter how experienced they are, needs to have this video.") convinced me to buy this for my wife. She has some surfing experience, and I was looking for a video with good female surfing footage and good advice.Unfortunately, this video is more about image. The first 10 minutes were downright laughable. It got better as it went on, since there are some great surfers in the video, but the actual surfing footage is sadly sparse. For some strange reason, they just kept showing duck dives and butt shots. You'd think that's all female surfing is about from watching this video. They have some great talent in the video but it mostly goes to waste.The on-board surf-cam footage was really cool, but overall the video was a big disappointment. Too bad; it had potential with all that talent. (If you're looking for a video about the joys of duck diving, though, this one's for you!)"
Beautiful-even as a stand-alone movie

"I bought this as an instructional video-but it's so entertaining, and the photography is so incredibly cool and eyepopping-that it's really enjoyable as just a fun treat on it's own. The girls are great, the waves are often incredible, and you get all the basics, shown with no condescension-as if a girlfriend were taking you out to the beach for the first time. Really dug that camera-on-the-end-of-the-board thing. It's inexpensive, too. Can't go wrong!"

"This dvd goes over some great tips for learning to surf and what you'll need for surfing and why you need certain things. It teaches you overall basic stuff for surfing. They show you some of the cool tricks to get your attention so it's not all about learning and that's it. I loved the videa a good handy tool for your first paddle out. Get stoked and get get wet."
