Searching for Tom Curren

For many surf historians, surf filmmakers, and fans, "Searching for Tom Curren" is one of the best surf movies of all time.

The documentary follows the surfing life of three-time world champion Tom Curren, the master of style.

Watch the surfer from Santa Barbara attacking the enemy lines at Jeffreys Bay, Haleiwa, and Backdoor.

You'll see colored wetsuits, classic signature carves, quad surfboards, and pristine surf spots.

Tom Curren's secret is to be able to balance speed, flow, and maneuvers.

"Searching for Tom Curren" was directed by Sonny Miller (1960-2014) and released on VHS by Rip Curl in 1996.
