About the Movie
Witness the large waves from Hurricane Marie that were pounding the Southern California coast. A heart thumping documentary told by the photographers, wave forecasters and legends who experienced the mega swell. Featuring the biggest Wedge on record, the hugest Newport Point ever filmed with Jaime Obrien scoring fifteen foot tube rides, epic Malibu with Laird Hamilton shooting the pier and magical Sandspit churning out the wave of a lifetime. The story is told from the point of view of the photographers who covered the magic swell. An amazing audio and visual record of "Big Wednesday". Each surfing spot had it's own story.
Great footage, poor production
i saw this film in santa cruz on the big screen, and i have to say first off the footage is great. the waves are incredible, awe inspiring, and intense. however, this movie was put together too poorly to enjoy. the music was absolutely god awful, it made me want to cringe it was so bad. the interviews were garbage, the people they chose to interview had absolutely nothing interesting to say except repeat "biggest swell in 30 years" over and over and over and over again. that is, when you could understand what they were saying, because it sounded like the interview was conducted with an old iphone camera. also, the first edit of wedge footage shot by the director was just terrible, it was so zoomed in you couldnt even see the wave, just the surfer. dont waste your money on this film, 95% of the footage is already on youtube / vimeo already.
Good Doc. Epic Swell!
Reminds me of the old school surf movies of the 1970’s. I saw it on the big screen and it was so fun. It’s great to have it to relive that epic Hurricane Marie swell at all the best surf spots - not just The Wedge. The Sandpit is the highlight for sure. Love it!
A Wedge To Remember offers unique historical perspective of a swell that will go down in history as the best ever. I hate it when the Old Guys would tell me how much better the waves used to be. Now I can point to this proof that the waves are better today then they ever where before. Don’t miss the drone footage of Newport. It’s fantastic. Thanks
