Trilogy – Billabong – Taylor Steele – Surf Movie

trilogya4 Trilogy   Billabong   Taylor Steele   Surf Movie

Every so often I come across a surf movie that is just one of those timeless classics that gets left in the vcr/dvd player for weeks, subsequent watchings never make it old. Trilogy is one of those movies for sure. Within the first 10 minutes, I knew this was one of my new favorite movies.

There’s just too much good stuff going for it, the surfers, the waves, the music. All obvious criteria for a good surf video. But Trilogy has more. It “feels” different from your standard surf movie, but I’m not sure I can pinpoint what it is. Something about the smooth pacing, the flow between sections, I don’t know what, but it’s gold.

Length: 38 minutes

Surfers: Andy Irons, Taj Burrow, Joel Parko. Can you ask for anything more?

Setup:

Sections are split between group sessions with all Andy, Taj, and Parko all surfing together at empty pefect locations, and then sections showcasing the individuals. Andy and Parko each have 2 sections for themselves, and then Taj has 3 of his own sections. This is the best surfing I’ve seen of Taj since his feature movie, Montaj. Really unbelievable stuff in unbelievable waves.

Best sessions:

All sections of the trio surfing together are my favorite. They find a snapper/rincon/sandspit/mexicosomewhere type righthander pretty much to themselves, and just destroy the place. There’s also a lot of footage of a Mundaka trip where they definitely score.

Rating: 5 stars

Bottom line: Buy it friggin’ now.
