Product description

Review

Those words that surfers spew - 'awesome', 'far out', 'righteous' - you can see why they use them when you watch Greenough's essential piece. But they don't come close to describing the terrible alien beauty of these images. --Channel 4 Film Review

The footage is quite breathtaking in its ability to show the viewer the beauty of a breaking wave from under the water and even deep within the tube. It's quite akin to actually being there, which was presumably Greenough s intention when he made the film. --Impulse Gamer

A great film for relaxing to - one of the great chill-out movies! --brain-damage.co.uk --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

About the Actor

George Greenough is an innovative surfer and cinematographer from Santa Barbara, California who now resides in Byron Bay in N.S.W Australia. He was born to a wealthy family but despised its trappings and spent most of his time in the ocean. Greenough is best known for creating the modern surfboard fin. He altered the design from a wide based, cumbersome keel to a more powerful and efficient dolphin fin-like foil. In the 60s Greenough's equipment was distinctly different from the longboard design of the day, and he rode short kneeboards under 5'5" and air mattresses regularly. He is credited as being the best mat rider ever, and still surfs the unique waveriding craft. His most famous board was a foamless fiberglass spoon shaped kneeboard he christened Velo. Greenough is also known as a genius level inventor and the master of fiberglass engineering, design, and construction, having used the material to build surfboards, camera housings, and boats. In the late 1960s and early 1970s George released two feature films The Innermost Limits of Pure Fun and Crystal Voyager. His footage above and below the water was personally selected by the members of Pink Floyd as the imagery for their Echoes film after the group saw Crystal Voyager, which used the Pink Floyd track as the music for the final sequence of the movie. Greenough is also featured in an early scene in Bruce Brown's surf film The Endless Summer. --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.
