I must say that one of my favorite extreme sports movies is about surfing. But not only that, it has an investigative crime drama element to the general atmosphere you would expect from a movie about surfing. That feeling quickly disappears thought, as a more sinister story begins to emerge. It’s an older movie with Keanu Reeves and the late Patrick Swayze as lead roles.
