Because they spend so much time in the water and appear to be sun kissed and clean, surfers have a hard time being taken seriously as an outlaw subculture. Bikers, for instance, with their grease and body odors, are much more daunting in the role of menacing criminal, at least they were until tough-guy wave rider Patrick Swayze marauded and plundered his way through the salt-water noir plot of Point Break (1991). An action-adventure, crime thriller that provides the requisite fights and chases and also manages to toss in a pinch of beachfront special effects, Point Break is a swell worth riding. With the help of your pause button, you will hit your breaking point when you catch a satisfying sight of Keanu Reeves’s rear as he shoots out of bed. I’d like to ride that wave!
