Surfing Action From Point Break

Point Break Surf Action

“In surfing we always grasp the few films that try to capture the spirit of what surfing means and that surfing is really more of a philosophy. The original one was a level at it’s time and now this is at the level of this time.” – Laird Hamitlon – Surfing Technical Advisor


“This Point Break adding big wave surfing. The largest waves in the world.” – Ericson Core – Director

“I’m just a massive fan of the original movie.” – Luke Bracey playing “Utah”

“Well the person who taught me how to tow board was Laird Hamilton” – Edgar Ramirez – playing “Bohdi”

“Teahupo’o is one of the fearsest one of the most deadliest waves in the world and we had the very best of the world’s surfers doing things that have never been done at Teahupoo before.” – Philip Boston – 2nd Until Director

“They asked us to do a rare stunt which is share a wave which is super dangerous – one of the best things I have ever done on a wave I reckon.” – Dylan Longbottom – Professional surfer – “Bohdi”

“We get caught in avalanche every single day.” – Brian Keaulana – Surf Stunt Coordinator

“I hit my head and basically can’t remember from when I hit my head to being in the calm water in the lagoon.” – Laurie Towner – Professional Surfer – “Utah”

“Legendary Kathryn Bigelow MADE the original classic. This looks like a bad copy.” – Pierre V. Wilson (we agree with you Pierre)
