Free Movies on Netflix

If you have a Netflix account, you can watch free movies instantly online (PC's have been able to for a while and now Macs are in public beta). Last night I watched "Billabong Odyssey". What a great surf film! They start a year long trip hitting the biggest waves on the planet. Todos Santos, Cortes Bank, Mavericks, Jaws and then around the world to places that blow the mind. The climax is the first ever tow in world cup at Jaws on Maui. The waves are in the 40-60 foot range and on several of the biggest ones there are some bad wipeouts. The last wave you may have already seen the footage. It's been on the internet for some time and on the small screen almost looks like a computer generated wave. The wave Mike Parsons is riding is almost too big and too perfect. See below. Hope you will check it out if you are a Netflix subscriber. There are also some sailing videos available. Cowabunga!
