Summer is great. The water’s a little warmer and the beach is oh so inviting. Unfortunately the waves don’t always pitch in for their part of the deal. If you find yourself needing to get your surf stoke on but the waves are flat, here are a few sweet summer surf flicks that can keep you going. The films cover themes like how the fish style board was created to an epic and beautiful film about John John to the essence of why we all surf – something for everybody. See the trailers below and plan your weekend viewing party.
