A Deeper Shade of Blue (2011) Poster

This is not a surf movie, it is a film about surfing's deepest roots: in the subconscious; in ancient lore; in the craft of surfboard building; in man's perpetual quest for a joyful relationship with the natural world.

| I really enjoyed this
I always turn to any channel that has anything about the ocean on, so this movie hooked me without having to try. I wasn't watching the surfers so much as the large amounts of screen time the ocean got, as well as the magnificent scenery. I learned a lot about surfing watching this too though. I had no idea of the timeline and the immense amount of board styles there have been and continue to be. It really is a science. It was a slow and relaxed pace which made me sit back and enjoy it even more.
