Remastered DVD Release (cover signed by Dick Hoole) with Bonus Feature: A Day in the Life of Wayne Lynch.
The most unusual film of the 70s that explores the limits of perfomance surfing at that time. A group of imaginative young surfers radically changed our concept of wave riding. These surfers perform thier dance on tubular swells that even today's heroes might not have attempted.
Tubular Swells begins with a selection of beautifully filmed shots of hollow waves, building to a climax. We visit Victoria for the Bells, Queensland and Burleigh, then Bali, Indonesia, on to South Africa, back to Hawaii for the Smirnoff and end with some hardcore backhand Pipeline surfing.Music is by Fleetwood Mac, Steve Miller Band and others.
"Tubular Swells created a new standard of truly professional entertainment of surf documentation." - Phil Jarratt.
"It adds up to some of the best surfing I have ever seen on film." - Jeff Divine, Photo Editor, Surfers Journal.
