Surfer, Dude product reviews

Love And Waves, That's What We Need In These Dark Days.

Steve Addington, long-boarding, herb-totting, soul-surfer, returns to Malibu for the summer to find his hometown vibe corrupted. New sponsorship demands the surfer expand into Virtual-Reality Video Games and Reality TV.

Unwilling to participate in this new digital-reality, Addington chooses to stay earthen and analogue, surfing majestic So-Cal waves. But in a biblical twist-of-fate, the waves go flat and stay flat. Out of money, his sponsored expense-accounts cancelled, betrayed by his buddies, the waveless Addington is backed into a harsh corner. He must endure the insanity of the wave drought or give into the Man and his reality-altering machines and prepackaged amusements.

Aided and abetted by his manager, his mentor, his guardian-angel and his summer lover, Addington has a high-quality chance of keeping his cool, maintaining his mellow and bringing harmony to his fractured and waveless world. It won't be easy.

In my day I would have enjoyed being a surfer but a total inability to find the groove, or balance, made it a little difficult for me to find that zen point and be one with the curl. Or something like that. Basically it was apparent to me early on that the guys who glided the waves as though born to it, probably were.
So I was really looking forward to seeing this movie to get a better perspective on the mindset of a natural surfer. If this is what goes through their heads then I understand how they manage to stay upright so easily. Hot air and pot smoke rises.
After all was said and done I found myself not really enjoying this movie as much as I thought or hoped I would. The plot was shallow and unbelievable and McConaughey does an all-too-believable impression of a stoner lost in the big world.
It was a good movie, if you like that kind of thing, but I think McConaughey should have stuck to movies such as Sahara and avoided movie like this and Fool's Gold. He's too good an actor to play such immature roles.
