  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Every surfer has the same dream, to surf the perfect wave on an unspoiled stretch of coast. A group of seven of the world

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD has the look of a documentary, with fairly poor resolution and heavy noise that can be a distraction, especially in darker scenes. Color-balance can be too bright and washed out. Edge enhancement can be seen at times, and occasionally can become somewhat of a distraction. Black levels are fairly deep, but shadow delineation is relatively poor, making it difficult to see any details in the shadows. (Danny Richelieu)
