No matter what rolled in on the tides of time, California surfing buddies Matt, Jack and Leory knew they’d stick together. And that they’d be ready when a rare 20-foot swell hit the coast at last.

Big Wednesday celebrates surfing as much as the most dedicated kid who ever waxed a board. It’s also a fascinating 1962-1974 chronicle of friendships and lifestyles in transition. John Milius (Apocalypse Now, Red Dawn) directs and coscripts with a passion for the ultimate ride and a truthful feel for those turbulent times. Stars Jan-Michael Vincent and William Katt are accomplished surfers; colead Gary Busey (Point Break, 1991) learned for the role. And the vivid camerawork drops you inside awesome barrels of ocean blue.

I saw it once a few years ago, I think it has a cult following, it's the class act of this bunch anyway.

I love this movie. I think it had a special premiere here in Hawaii, though I saw it at a regular showing.

I'm wondering if this is the original theatrical cut. As I remember it, the DVD and TV showings always cut out an important scene which was in the theatrical version. I think I saw this a couple of times at the theater but never got to see that scene again. (I do own the DVD and digital and should double check.)
