Float Archipelago

I used to work in a store which sold all the surf brands, behind the counter we had some screens which we played promo dvds on. This is basically feels like a really long version of one of them. Ostensibly it documents a six month quest to find perfect waves (or barrels or some such thing) but there is no real sense of this at all, certainly aside from a title about half way through which says ‘day fifty’ it could all have been shot on the same day for the difference it makes. So what you have is very pretty shots of people surfing set to music with about 120 seconds of those same people messing around on a boat in between. If you really really like watching people surf this is going to make you very happy but really I was hoping for a little more faux surf philosophy about how it feels to be at one with the ocean.
