I’ll just go ahead and say it. Archy is the best action sports documentary I’ve had the pleasure of watching. I’ll compare it to Dogtown and Z-Boys, but it’s better. There’s not much else to say, this is a movie that needs to sit on the shelf right next to the Endless Summer.

Stevie O’Hara and Buck Rowley over at my old stomping ground, Pioneers Boardshop, have gotten word from Brian Nevins who’s just spent a couple weeks in indo scoring crazy waves and photos.

“Just getting back to Singapore and taking in some reflection time from the past couple weeks cruising around Indo. What a trip. I can’t remember ever seeing waves this good, here… or anywhere. Cruising around with Brad Gerlach and the Marcotti clan walking into 12 straight days of perfect waves… Hope all is well.”
