List RulesFilms about surfers or surfing. Fiction and documentary films are both acceptable.

A list of the best surf movies, including documentaries about surfing, narrative surf films, and beach party movies. Beach Party films, popular in the 60s, are entirely fictional and geared more towards a general audience. Whether one long-boards or short-boards, there's a surf movie for everyone. The films on this list aren't for kooks (well-- most of them aren't). Enjoy!

Use this surfing movies list to remember your favorites or learn about new titles in the genre that you may have never heard of. If you are an expert in surf movies, by all means add new ones to this list too!
