Editorial Reviews

This is the story of two major Marijuana smugglers who grew up surfing together.
The widly violent lifestyle forced them to separate. One went to Hollywood and used his experiences to write for Miami Vice. The other went in search of the most dangerous wave in Central America, Salsa Brava. Their reunion 20 years later was the inspiration for the most popular book in the surfing culture, "In search of Captain zero" by Allan Weisbecker.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

First off, I had read In Search Of Captain Zero many years ago ad many times. It's one of my favorite books. When I saw this DVD, I had to have it. Great companion to the book. I suggest that any future buyers read the book first, then watch the DVD. You won't be disappointed. Khan!

As a huge fan of the book "In Search of Captain Zero" (which I read while living as an ex-pat in Costa Rica), I was happy to discover someone had made a documentary about the main characters in this quintessential road trip memoir. The author- and the friend he searches to the ends of the earth for- were such compelling figures that they fairly begged for a "where are they now?" And the filmmaker delivered on that, taking us into the currents lives of the two estranged surfers buddies, as well as shedding light on their outrageous backstory as pot smugglers in the freewheeling 70's. It would be wrong to give away the ending, but it's well worth the trip to see where these two friends end up in the end. It helps to be a fan of the book this doc is based on, but either way, I would highly recommend this film to anyone interested in surfer counter culture or a just good dramatic documentary filmmaking.

The film is mopre a documentary rather than a movie about the book. I loved the book and hoped someone would make it into a movie.
