Impressive mission, impressive execution
22 October 2018 | by diedaily77See all my reviews

If you liked 'Art of Flight' you will probably like this short. Although there are no thousand-meter descents or helicopters doing vertical 180s, obviously, this show does not disappoint at all. One of the most interesting sequences happens when their Icelandic sailboat captain ixnays their activities and they accept it first with grudging humility and then with total respect when they are safely ashore and caught in one of the worst storms in Iceland's recent history. The demure comments of the sailboat captain to the effect of 'Nature is the only real captain out here' are poignant, but he was the real captain as far as the surfers were concerned and they obeyed him commendably. Fortunately, in the aftermath of the storm, they were able to document some incredible surfing, including some nighttime sequences with spectacular northern lights and amazingly luminescent waves as the backdrop. I would love to know whether they back-lit those waves artificially, used filters, or if it was all natural.
