of the Earth (1972)
rating, out of 5 bars of wax
film by Albert Falzon. Released in 1972. This film reveals
a fantasy of three exotic lands. Bali, Hawaii and Australia,
where surfers made their own houses, surfboards and
lived in harmony with nature. "Getting back to
where it all began when life was simple, no rip-off
people and it was fun". With an original 70's soundtrack
to stir the soul, Morning Of The Earth is a milestone
in surf movies and forever a part of surfing history".
Nat Young, Terry Fitzgerald, Gerry Lopez, Stephen Cooney,
David Treloar and Micheal Peterson

this movie is one of those things that revelas its age. it
was made in 1972 and laced with 1972 ism's, like the short
boardies, lack of leashes,
the hair, and the hairbrained idea that surfers need to be
reminded when we're stoked.
this director guy albert flazon introduces himself
in the beginning and has a good idea about doing a surf culture
film. then he introduces this spyro-gyro on screen "meant
to be an adrenaline burst" piece of blue dot right in
the middle of these great old big wave sequences and just
ruins the shots. i don't know maybe other's will feel differently
when viewing this film, but i found the adrenal reminders
to be annoying and destracting.
there are some great old wave shots of vintage
gerry lopez, nat young, michael peterson, and stephen cooney
freesurfing and enlightening thier own souls. the old styles
of attacking waves are evident in this nostalgic piece, and
even though it's not the raddest film ever made, it is worth
the viewing time spent with loved ones.
