Original review of ‘Ocean Rhythms’ from Tracks Magazine – NOV '75

Steve gets it all Flowing…

Ocean Rhythms is not only a current up-to-date look at hot radical surfing – it is a refreshingly entertaining surf movie: something very different from the stereotyped overseas formula for a surf flick. Certainly it is not as slick; without the mandatory Pipeline water footage and other effects which we have been accustomed to from the Hollywood surf footage: Hawaii.

It largely owes its popularity to the fact that it is about Australian surfers surfing their own waves and ripping them to bits. You can’t help but get the feeling that was expounded years ago; that we’re tops now. For once a surf-film maker has given an audience what they have been wanting; an honest in-depth surfer’s movie featuring Australia’s best surfers on their favorite home breaks.

G&S ad from 1975
Definitely value this one, as there is a variety of surfers and great surf breaks, filmed from unreal positions, as well as photographically stimulating approaches to keep you hanging on the edge of your seat. There is some Bells footage in there, an unreal reef sequence with PT, Rabbit (the bunny in the burrow) and Ian Cairns where the film’s maker, Steve Core, was able to get a look straight down the length of the tube that is pretty full on.

Terry Richardson at his home break blowing people out with his cutbacks into the tube as well as some Bali material of a short trip. Rabbit rips up Duranbah, Burleigh and Kirra and carves great hunks at UluWatu, often sliding into deep caverns and attempting radical moves which he pulls off frequently.

Michael Peterson comes on in the second half riding some outrageous tubes at Kirra and Burleigh which he carves up casually with a fierce radical aggressiveness that completely puts his true ability in clear perspective. Knee-boarder Peter Crawford individual surfing style and ability on his circus machine at Dee Why and the incredible backside moves of Col Smith complete a well balanced overall picture of Australian surfers.

The Coke Contest section is a great statement of the radical surfing of the times with everyone ripping, slicing, shredding, powering and generally going for it something fierce.
