Dazzlingly picturesque study of two surfers' three-month trip around the world in search of "the perfect wave."
Starting out in California during the winter, the two journey to Ghana, where they initiate the locals into the joys of surfing. An African game hunter gives them a ride to Cape St. Francis, where they experience a wave that lasts so long that it indeed qualifies as "perfect." From there, they fly
to Australia and New Zealand, where the waves just aren't happening. Not so with Tahiti, where the pair discover three exceptional beaches. Their trip ends in Hawaii, and a visit to the "Pipe Line," where the waves are up to forty feet high.
