SOME QUOTES ABOUT THE FILM
Financed entirely with the proceeds generated by Greenough's fishing business, this document is entirely free of any commercial restraints or advertising sludge. Gritty, witty, unexpurgated, unadorned and essential; this is the first film from the tubes perspective (Greenough Vision) It is the Innermost Limits of Pure Fun.
A landmark inside-out perspective of surfing that's yet to be replicated-pure genius.
Steve Pezman, Surfers Journal Publisher
The "coming of the Dawn' take is simply the most visceral and mesmerizing stretch of the film in surf movie history.
Scott Hulet, Surfers Journal Editor
So much has always been made of the incredible photography that we've forgotten the action, which is incredible. The genius of the modern carve, tube and roundhouse surfing.
