Movie Info

A documentary which centers on a cross-section of characters who come from many walks of life, but share one thing in common--the need to surf. For many of them, surfing is merely a hobby. For others, surfing is an identity and a lifestyle. For a fortunate and talented few, it is a profession. For one, it is salvation.

Absolutely unlike any documentary you've ever seen, Step Into Liquid nearly qualifies as a religious experience.

When Step Into Liquid remembers that it is indeed all about the wave, it pulls us right into it.

September 20, 2003 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

In any sport, whether it's whacking a ball into a cup or your opponent into submission, the majestic and the absurd are very close cousins, and Brown is generous enough here to give us a long look at both.

Audience Reviews for Step Into Liquid

For the surfer, if it exists within you. For those who aren't fascinated by the surf culture, it is just a well pieced together documentary..without any really interesting revelations.

Beautifuly filmed Surf Documentry. I love that it's not cliche. Personaly I feel a sense of freedom watching it. Even tho I've only surfed a handfull of times this doc really validates my connection to those times. Good soundtrack.
