The Golden City by Mike Pagan. Released on Vimeo 12 January 2014.
“A road trip with Matt Pagan and Dayton Silva on a search for waves in “the Golden City”. Though we just missed the big swell that hit San Francisco, we definitely tried to make the best of it. Like cliché tourists, we visited the Golden Gate Bridge, stayed at the first Motel ever built in San Francisco and spent most of our time enjoying the breathtaking views the city has to offer. Even though we didn’t score many waves, it ended up being an awesome road trip with the boys.”

Surf film ingredients…

Movies, documentaries, TV programmes and videos whether fiction or non fiction have the ability to stir our emotions, remind us of past experiences or even light the desire to do something different. The music that accompanies the film or video also plays a key part in enhancing the story, the action or the event taking place on the screen.

And so it is with surf films and videos; a surf video can evoke memories of a surfing experience, fire up the desire to travel, inspire you to improve your surfing or simply remind you why you surf and rekindle the stoke.

Peter Devries’ video ‘Wind + Rain’ reminds me of my own winter surfing experiences; a grey overcast canopy overhead, strong winds, cold rain, cold water, neoprene heavy and the ocean shades of gray and green. The head high surf is within my winter comfort zone and I could see myself dropping into these waves…

Wind + Rain by Peter Devries. Released January 2011.


I just don’t ever get tired of looking at this next video – J.O.B. First Look; it makes me glad that I surf and is a reminder of my dream to one day stand on the beach at Pipeline on the North Shore of Oahu.

It reminds me of the joy of surfing in the warmth of a tropical ocean. The backing track is Beck’s ‘Missing (Heaven Hammer)’ which works so well in this video, providing a slow tempo to accompany the slow-motion footage of Jamie O’Brien surfing Pipe.

J.O.B. First Look by Vincent Laforet. Released October 2009.


What I love about this next video is that it makes me want to go surfing and is a reminder of the joy and delight to simply paddle, drop in, get in trim, glide and then just take in the wave. It also takes me back to summers past, sitting on a long board out back at North Watergate Bay in the late afternoon sunshine, warm blue water with the cliffs forming a dramatic backdrop. Simply wonderful.

Jon Hopkins – Breathe This Air featuring Purity Ring. From the album Immunity, released June 2013.


Black & White Pipeline by Juan Bacagianis. Released June 2013.
“My whole life is this escape; my whole life is this wave I drop into, set the whole thing up, pull off a bottom turn, pull up into it, and shoot for my life, going for broke man. And behind me all this shit goes over my back: the screaming parents, teachers, the police [laughs], priests, politicians, kneeboarders, windsurfers —they’re all going over the falls into the reef; headfirst into the reef, and BWAH! And I’m shooting for my life. And when it starts to close out I pull out and go down the back, and catch another wave, and do the same goddamned thing again.” — Miki Dora
