Surf movies

A classic of the surfing world. It is a documentary, in which two surfers from California decide to go around the world looking for an endless summer and waves which have never been surfed. Africa, Tahiti, Australia and Hawaii are just some of their destinations. It could have been Sagres

Admit it, you also want to be Bodhi (Patrick Swayze). All those that have seen this movie want to be surfers, that much is true. The story is about an FBI agent (Keanu Reeves), who infiltrates a surf gang to capture one of the robbers. In the movie Keanu learns how to surf, next time please come to Wavy Surf camp and learn how to surf with our surf school in Sagres!

Chasing Mavericks

It is a real story based in the beginnings of a Californian surfer, Jay Moriarity, who at the 15 years old starts to train with the legend Frosty Hesson (played by Gerard Butler) to catch the biggest waves of the world, the Mavericks.


You will want to live in Australia when you see the wonderful landscapes, though the incredible beaches of the Algarve are as good as Australia to surf. The plot is based on the real story of two brothers that revolutionized the world of surfing in the seventies. Very interesting in terms of knowing the beginning of the surf industry.

The main theme of the legendary film of Coppola is not surfing, but the Vietnam War. However, the scene of Colonel “Charlie don´t surf” Kilgore looking for a safe beach to let his soldiers go surfing, is an authentic movie leyend.
