Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

First time on Blu-Ray in the UK.

Three years after Dogtown and Z-Boys, Stacy Peralta came back with another spectacular doc - this time on the history of big-wave surfing. Widely regarded as one of the best surf documentaries ever made, it can now be viewed in high definition for the first time.

Breaking the mold of traditional documentary filmmaking, Riding Giants uses its dynamic, cross-generational approach to profile the lives and times of the intrepid surfers who over the decades have dedicated themselves to finding and successfully challenging the biggest waves on earth. We meet Greg Noll, the pioneer, whose relentless push into Hawaii's big surf in the late 1950s earned him the nickname "The Bull." There's Jeff Clark, Northern California's lone frontiersman, who, after discovering the massive waves of Maverick's near San Francisco, rode there alone for over a decade. And finally Hawaii's Laird Hamilton, the prototypical "extreme" surfer, a rare breed of athlete/innovator considered as the best big wave rider who ever waxed a board.
