hope this movie is good....footage looks insane.
wow. the footage IS BANANAS. one more reason to look forward to fall. sum bitches shoulda released it in the summer! also looking forward to how "the public" will respond to the inevitable hooting/ hollering that will happen in the theater.
my buddy and i got ssshhd by folks in pasadena for hooting and what not during a showing of 'riding giants'.
Hope there's some GoPro shots!
oh the drama.
anyone know if there's going to be a SF "premiere" or perhaps down in HMB or SCruz
How many idiots will try to paddle out after watching this. The acting looks to be pretty horrible too. So far I am giving it two STOKES down. I will absolutely watch it though and they will get my money so who is the idiot?? haha!
Money on straight to DVD. Set up a pool?
I'll wait for it on netflix
When I heard Gerard Butler was in the movie, I didn't expect he would be playing Chandler from North Shore.
Hope the movie honors Jay's legacy better than that preview makes it seem. Looks like typical Hollywood bullshit.
Yes, cool water/air shots though.
Big screen surf movies bother me.But, that wave and those cameras...they will get my money.I want to see it on the biggest/loudest screen possible.
Looks like another Hollywood surf movie I'll be viewing with a bag over my head.
imax® would be nice.
@sharkturd, any "Hollywood surf movie(s)" you have liked?
Can't wait to see if I'm in it! I was an extra in the paddle out scene and wormed my way to the front where I took this pic.
I will be viewing this movie on the big screen with my girlfriend, she can wake me up for the surfing scenes which will be well shot. I think the story the movie tells has a good premise but I'm the guy that hates most movies, you name it probably don't like it.
@turd, make sure you use a paper bag.
Looks fun. Who cares about the bad acting. I'd like to see hi-res footage of Mavericks for a change.
Thanks yahguy...if it's even worse than appears in the trailer I can always switch later to a sealed-around-the-neck plastic one.
@surfergrrl, is that you on the far left behind the guy on the blue PA?
No, @WaveGlider, I'm behind the camera taking the pic of the real Frosty (left) and Gerry Butler playing him (right, obviously).
@sharkturd, could this be you in your days past? Always knew you had a sense of humor.
Oh man, I wish I'd been in the movie so I could call him Gerry.
Is that three amigos taco joint still down in HMB? i could really go for one of those-
but will it be better than The Best Hollywood Surf Movie Ever, which is, of course, Blue Crush?? judging by the dialog, I reckon it's gonna be close, but Mavs will win coz it's local...
Fun fact about Gerry Butler: When I paddled over to introduce myself to Holly Beck (who doubled for Jay's GF in the surfing scenes), she told me Gerry refused to put on a wet wetsuit, insisting on a dry one every time. #primadonna
looks cheesy but I will probably see it ... on netflix ... in 6 months
3 amigos is still there ! Saw dancing horses there last time I went
I wish someone would bring me a dry wetsuit every time.
i heard Gerry's a kook. just sayin. that's what i heard. i know that's mean, but i've been home sick all day and i need to take it out on someone. real surfers put on wet, stinky wetsuits they wore the night before....in the cold ass morning! just sayin.
and btw, I still dont know who this Gerry Butler is...everybody's like..."oh, he was in this and that movie"...
and I still don't recognize him.
I need me some Tylenol- sheesh
@ WaveGlider- how did you get that cool 'R' with circle around it for the IMAX trademark? is that on a special keyboard?
these are the things that interest me.
fuck, this town needs some surf. real bad-
it's about to boil
Someone make a fake word document with Gerry Butler's rider. Thanks. Busy day at work, fuqn tired, disconnecting for a few.
Shivs- thanks for taking care of me today with your great entertainment. im talkin fever, chills, sore throat, the shits.....couched it all day, learned some new tunes, had some laughs :)
it's been real dude. have a good night-
@unfocused®; here's some Hollywood smut into Butlers life.
As for the trademark symbol ®, on a Mac you press the 'option' key, and then the letter r in lower case; option, r, = ®. No idea if it works the same on other computers, and earlier OSX systems.
what was he in rehab for? vodka and xanex? please®
Thanks WaveGlider®....im going to start signing off with that little Trademark®
Once again waveglider you exhibit the uncanny ability to read with little or no comprehension. Witness, please, surferrrl's statement that she "wormed her way to the front where she took a picture"...and then you cluelessly ask if she is in it. Then there is my comment that should've been a hint for you at my disdain for Hollywood's track record of inaccurate and cheesey surfing potrayal. So, better to have you list your faves...what you got, Gidget, Blue Crush, Big Wednesday? I mean, what are the choices? Hollywood has totally dropped the ball, or maybe I should say "wiped out" when it comes to surfing.
@sharkturd, open your email setting so that I might address your contemptious comments towards me appropriately, and in private. This is hardly the place one should express ones distaste for another when they, you, profess to be such a self aggrandizing pice of excrement/turd.
Or better yet, call a truce and just 'let it go pal.'
As for surfergrrrl's question, I 'did' read it, but looked at the picture at the same time because there is a resemblance of the female in the pic and the pic of her on her blog. And so what if Hollywood, or any film company should cheese it up, or down in your opinion, it's still entertainment to others.
Tell ya what, I'll take you to the movie and even buy you some popcorn and a hotdog. Later that evening we'll go out for a drink and dancing, and maybe afterwords, well, you know ; - )
Wait, this homie don't go that way.
So, who is this Gerry guy again?
No sympathy here Gerry...this guy sucked d#$% for coke!
For you turd, it's funny, hope you're able to laugh at 'something.'
@ wavgelider: WHEEEE!!!
oh god thank you! that's awesome. love them keyboard shortcuts!!
and oh yeah - i am so stoked to just see how many people besides me HATE hollywood. Here i have friends who think i am out of my mind because i plain don't give a crap about any movie at all that comes out of that corporatocratic institution of idiocy and yet i find, out of nowhere, come folks who also just can't stand it. perfect.
Who can forget " North Shore" and "In Gods Hands" Hollywood surf classics
@futuresparky, you're welcome for the keyboard shortcuts, as I just learned of them when I got my new OSX Snow Leopard.
As for the Hollywood "corporatocratic institution of idiocy" I tend to agree with you. I enjoy waiting till they come out on DVD and enjoy them in the privacy of my home on the flat screen and theatre sound that cost me an arm and a leg for and rarely use.
I thought you were going to "let it go" now...I guess it's sorta like you were going to leave the web site too...just more solid principals from waveglider. Let me remind you that you started this juvenile schoolyard scuffle. Constantly calling me the obligatory "negative" for merely stating my opinion. "Do you surf?", "don't listen to sharkturd, he's just a troll trying to get a reaction"...ring a bell wave glider? Since I've been on this site you have given me zero courtesy...so I give you back what I get. And now you want to walk back from all your previous insults and go have a "New Castle together" or see a movie and have some popcorn. FEK YOU. If you really want to stop this then stop engaging me, don't call me out...or better yet why don't you make good on your threat to leave, then I could finally give you a posi thumb.
@sharkturd, look at the order in which this recent set of tirades by you started. I in humor only attempted to make light of our recent "juvenile schoolyard scuffle," yet you, again, in all your grandioseness went off on me claiming past incidents with:
Your words: "Once again waveglider you exhibit the uncanny ability to read with little or no comprehension. Witness, please, surferrrl's statement that she "wormed her way to the front where she took a picture"...and then you cluelessly ask if she is in it. Then there is my comment that should've been a hint for you at my disdain for Hollywood's track record of inaccurate and cheesey surfing potrayal. So, better to have you list your faves...what you got, Gidget, Blue Crush, Big Wednesday? I mean, what are the choices? Hollywood has totally dropped the ball, or maybe I should say "wiped out" when it comes to surfing."
I ask what surf movie(s) you like, and look what you spewed at me. Come on pal, what's your real problem, or do I know? You're somewhat of an intelligent and articulate person, been around the block a few times more than many here as have I. But have you ever really been in a situation that you knew was going nowhere, and you just kept pushing, and pushing, until you became so fatigued that you felt you couldn't go on anymore? I have, and I dug down deep within my training and resources of experience, and success, and came to the conclusion that it's best to simply walk away at times and consider some sadly ignorant. Not that I'm calling you ignorant, quite the contrary, but you have left me no choice this time.
A person may think they are winning battles, but when it comes down to the entire war, it's a whole different story.
So here's my final suggestion, let's let it go. Meet me for a surf session at Bolinas, or maybe a place of your choice. I don't surf OB, and LM sounds inviting.
In Gods Hands has the best opening of any movie, ever. And then the rest of it basically is horrible.
@futuresparky- yeah, it's hard to care about hollywood and shit like that because we've been blessed with the secret of surfing. def the best drug, best rush, going on a limb here...def up there with sex. we're generally out of fashion, behind on the times, have know idea who Gerry Butler is, etc. and when we score the goods, cloud 9 and high 5's. it's the ultimate therapy. it's like, we are the luckiest folks in the world, some of us might be loners, but we are members of a tribe. we can go all over the world and meet other tribal members, we don't need to speak their language. we just need to speak the universal signs of respect, courtesy, and Stoke-
who needs hollywood, when you got surf?
have a good weekend Futuresparky, pray for surf, brah®
So is wave glider and shark turd going to see of "man and mavericks "together or what? I wanna go
Morning TT :)
Morning focus, you back for more action here? Wet street this am and flat sea:( I just got a boat to play on at Linda marz
Riding the couch again today, TT. I never get sick, but, i got something right now- that link doesn't seem to work. I'd love to check out your boat. can you repost it. Thanks brah, have a good Friday
Unfocused go eat a lot of zinc!! Will help ya feel better, I will post some pics in an hour or so,maybe that will help too,found another stoked channel dude and some babes on a boat
If Waveglider and sharkturd go to the movie together, someone is def. going to try the 'popcorn trick'
Is that what pee wee did
thanks T- this web site is addicting :)
can't get me enough of Stoked channel dude :) shit is so funny, boss
Pee Wee Paul Ruebens had a different approach...more direct, and in a video booth afaik.
another stoked channel dude and a babe with my new boat
yeah T, sweet boat. I sort of pieced that link together and saw a boat similar. is it possible to put an out board on there? it also looks white water worthy on a river, no? have fun!
Fatnewt! good choice, and who could forget earlier works?
Are waveglider and shark turd gonna make out???
@tom: that looks like Stoked Lake Guy - different dude, although from same family, one assumes... possibly with his sister Pierced Lake Babe.
Good night unfocused:)
Thanks brah, you to :)
holy peeholey! before you know it there is going to be an old man fight going on. sharkturd and waveglider are gonna be whaling on each other with canes and walkers! easy folks! easy.....or we'll have to call olb in to 'regulate'!
p.s. - after thinking about this trailer, i can say it looks marginally better than transformers 'darkside of the moon' or whatever that piece of shit was called. looks like ol gerry buttler has the acting skills of talking cardboard. wanna see a good surf film? try 180 degrees south. no acting needed, just pure purity.
Okay, futurespark, very funny, seriously!...but, not so sure about bringing in olb to regulate...apparently he's no spring chicken either...could turn into a free for all for the Geritol.
But now consider this...are Tenderloin tom and unfocused the same person? What about sharkturd and waveglider?
Good one turd :)
@ Sharkturd- I guess now im going to have to show my quiver?
Im nervous...i feel it's kind of boring. just a bunch of shortboards all within an inch of each other.
oh, well- ce la vie
Hmmm, that could be a problem, @uf. Not even ONE hipster board? Better fehgedaboudit. Say, I didn't know you were bi-lingual.
I should let you borrow for your quiver-show my latest version of the Horsepill, bisquit, disk, dumpster diver...I call mine, what else, 'The Turd'....the perfect board for squeezing through the tube.
BTW, I channeled my inner Mick Lasalle to take another, but more critical look at this movie trailer. Good lord!! This thing is going down...sure to be a total bomb...and I don't mean that in the good way. Good thing wave glider dude likes cheese! I'm not even sure it will warrant cutting eye-holes in my paper bag. But then I wouldn't be able to see the surf scenes. Perhaps a pair of Hear O's is in order. They protect my ears from the cold water, maybe they can do the same from bad dialogue.
...and im not one to brag, but a played poker last night with a bunch of friends....AND I WON THE WHOLE MUTHER FUCKIN LOOT, SON!!!!
like i said Shark, my q is boring.
but if folks insist to to the validity of "myself", i will do it
Damn, missed some of the action here.....@shiv=funny...@Tt, I think Peee Wee did the popcorn trick to himself...
Show us the Q unfocused !!
okay. lemme get over this flu. it is a boring one, mind you
@ TT- hella funny, ive never been accused of being an alter-ego. lol!
Maybe a mug shoot too,Hope your poker boys don't get sick
def have one of those, TT. lol!!!!
enhance ... enhance ... enhance
what is going on here? lint crisis? fishing lure accident?
