Add me to the list of those saying Hot Generation....awesome movie and I loved the soundtrack!
Also don't forget Evolution.....Wayne's surfing is still amazing, he made the template for high performance shortboard surfing with no one to emulate and it still looks as good or better then much of the modern surfing you see.....Soundtrack on that one not so much! Perhaps the difference between the Hot Generation soundtrack by The Sunsets (early garage punk?) and Taman Shud (same group, they just changed their name) should be discussed
under the "surfing on acid" string
Paul Witzig's contribution to documenting the transition era is huge.

Hmmm, sounds cool.
I wonder if I can add th e app on my Samsung Smart TV....... not a brand new model (got it probably 5-6 yrs. ago) so I guess I'll have to check.

Cool thread, as we go along, someone pulls out (yet) another forgotten flick that deserves honorable mentioning.
I tried to get the one I was in from Paul Gillane but can't find it anywhere. Just my luck...... my 15 seconds of fame... lol.
You should be able to
