We all wish we lived close to the ocean and be able to surf whenever the waves are good. Unfortunately this is not the case for most of us, and when we want to go for a surf this often takes some planning and preparing. But what about the days you really feel the surf vibe, but don’t want to leave the comfort of your couch. On days like that, Netflix is your best friend. There are loads of surf movies to be found on Netflix, some are great others not so great. In this article we will share our favorite surf movies on Netflix, this is however based on the Dutch Netflix. 


Fishpeople is a movie which is not just about surfing, it is more like a love letter to the ocean. With the stories of 6 different people all with a deep connection with the ocean as the foundation of the story. It is about finding happiness in the deep dark trenches, glassy green waves and everything in between. All surfers love the ocean, but even non surfers will love the ocean after watching this great documentary. 


If you have followed our blog for a while now you know that surfing can be used as a form of therapy. An example of this Is the International Surf Therapy Organization.

Where 20 veterans commit suicide every day. Surfing offers a solution for these veterans, which is told through compelling stories.


This is the story about 3 Hawaiian girls who live to surf. Anne-Marie was a great surfer, before she was nearly killed on a big wave wipeout. The movie follows the 3 girls to surfing success after the wipeout. When she can compete in the Pipe masters contest she sees this as her opportunity to break though. But will she break through? I guess you’ll just have to watch the movie to find out.
