- Great piece of surfing history.

- Children of the Sun will stir the happiest memories in any surfers life
... never to be forgotten fun filled days.
- This film is a chronicle of a time now looked on as the golden years
Filmed By: George Greenough
Year of Production: 1973
Duration: 74 minutes
- When this film first came out it was considered way ahead of it's time,
- The shots from inside the tubes, of which there were heaps in the flick,
were considered by some to be state of the art, and by others to be a waste
of good film time.
- The final sequence in the movie which was backed by Pink Floyd's Echoes
was something completely different in surf films.
- But you'd expect that from Greenough who never fails to come up with
something a bit different.
- The majority of the film is spent with Greenough, Australia's Nat Young
and Richie West traveling the oceans, initially in Greenough's motorised "Pod",
then his sail boat, the "Morning Light".
- This video is pre-professional surfing, so there is plenty of time to
enjoy uncrowded isolated perfection.

Duration: 67 minutes
- How many surfers would have believed that by 1998
longboarding would be so engrained in mainstream, and that as we head into
a new millennium, longboarding could look back to a glorious past stretching
nearly 100 years.
- This video takes longboarding to a great new level
with 67 minutes of non-stop action in crystal clear waters around the world.
- Backing music by The Reventlos, Tim Reid, The Insect
Surfers and a host of others.
CAN'T STEP TWICE
(ON THE SAME PIECE OF OCEAN)
Filmed By: Alby Falzon
Year of Production: 1992
Duration: 35 minutes
- Subtitled "A Surfing Odyssey", this is
an unusual little piece of video footage.
- The title is very philosophical (Can't Step Twice
On The Same Piece Of Water), but there seems to be very little in the way
of surfing and far too much time spent on boobs, loin cloths, demonic balinese
dancers and experimental photography.
- I only paid about 4 bucks for it at a second-hand
store, so it was okay at that price.
