Product Description

Experience One of the Longest Waves Ever Filmed From Inside the Barrell!
In the world of surfing, there exists a group of elite surfers whose sole mission in life is to surf the unknown. From California to Australia, surfers have marked up the map with legendary surf spots, which over the years have become polluted and overcrowded. But this elite group is constantly hunting for untapped waves. Searching across the globe, they have come to the islands of Indonesia, where the most consistent world-class waves can be found around every bend. However, to reach the perfect waves on The Forgotten Coast, an extreme physical and mental journey is required. Join Brian Conley, Travis Potter, Daniel Thomson, Micah Byrne, Brett Schwartz, Brandon Tipton and Ben Knight, seven of the world's best surfers as they experience the travel, the adventure and the purest waves on earth!
Special Features include: Commentary Track with Travis Potter and Director Justin LePera; Exclusive Interview with Surfer Brian Conley; The Forgotten Coast Screensaver; Photo Gallery by Brian Nevins, Jeff Dolen; Deleted Scenes

For many surfers, the notion of "going feral" is associated mainly with azure blue waves breaking on powdered sandy beaches. It is the casting aside of everyday monotonies for the pursuit of point-break excellence. The Forgotten Coast fuels this romantic ideal, as the exotic locales, glassy sets, and empty lineups are the stuff of wave-riding fantasy. However, it also documents the less-publicized realities of surf exploration that so often escape our daydreams. The intrepid crew of Travis Potter, Brian Conley, Daniel Thomson, Micah Byrne, Brandon Tipton, Brett Schwartz, and Ben Knight encounter sketchy boat captains, hellacious weather, nasty infections, and more as they seek out the finest waves Indonesia has to offer. Proving that it takes much more than just a quiver of boards to make a boat trip, these surfing nomads explore the unexplored by relying on each other and respecting the kindness of locals. It's not always glamorous, but the payback of pristine surf makes the journey worthwhile. --Dave Callanan

5.0 out of 5 stars For the Couch Surfer January 25, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is right up there with Endless Summer. My husband loves it and has viewed it several times. If you have a couch surfer at home who talks about the good old days of surfing, treat him to this video.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Watching November 21, 2007
I thought this was a cool documentary. It's a good movie about a journey of surfers who push the limits just to find some unsurfed waves. The quality of surfing is good, but it's the trip that's amazing.

This movie is not as much about the surf as the culture.. and the journey.. these guys are likely surfing waves never surfed in modern times, but "getting to them" is what interested me. The fighting with boat pilot, the cooking of critically endangered animals (not the surfers, but the locals), the infections gotten along the way.. really show what it takes to get to uninhabited coasts. It's great to watch the "price" these surfers pay along their journey. the interview with the blonde surfer within the DVD "extras" is creepy.. he's a good guy, but the camera person, for whatever reason, focuses up close, in on the guy's nostrils.. as he's talking.. very weird.. the movie is a bit strange in that the surfing is less interesting than the journey the guys take to get there. It's still a great movie. For those touting Step into Liquid, etc as better.. Step into Liquid is great also, but that movie contains surfing in Wisconsin, a waste of time, along with guys in Vietnam surfing sand dunes.. because there were no waves. Laird and his crew are only in Step into Liquid for about 20 minutes.. the rest of that movie is not really that interesting, to me. It's a surf movie for the general public.. With Forgotten Coast.. at least you should be familiar with the world of surfing before you rent/buy it.. that's assumed. People not into surfing movies will not like Forgotten Coast.. but they will like Step into Liquid (I like both).

4.0 out of 5 stars Great balance of pure footage and personal stories December 13, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As a VERY-casual surfer, I admit I do not have a full appreciation for surfing technique, which is why I particularly enjoyed the balanced combination of surfing, scenery, and story telling in this movie. Amazing scenery, funny surfers, and an interesting relationship between those surfers and the locals they encounter creates a very intriguing, re-watchable story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool surfer dude's movie ... October 23, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's a cool movie from surfer dudes for surfer dudes. Detailing a low budget expedition into Indonesia to look for perfect waves, including some pretty real adventures on the way. Surfing, boating and camping pretty raw.
