Highwater

 (2009)

Highwater Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

"High Water" is an action-packed adventure centered around surfing's Triple Crown competitions,the professional surfing tour's final three competitions held each year on the North Shore of Oahu. Starting on Halloween and ending around Christmas, it attracts the sport's best surfers to the legendary North Shore, known for its huge waves and unparalleled surf. The Triple Crown is the ultimate proving ground for world class surfers, but the events also lure amateurs, surfers young and old, and hopefuls to the North Shore; where population, tension and commerce swell during the competition. Real life drama, humor, death-defying waves, rivalries, parties, heart-break, romance, injuries, and humanity all collide during the nearly two month competition on Hawaii's "7 Mile Miracle". The film will follow multiple story lines over the course of the entire competition and will rely upon Dana Brown's...

Highwater Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Like Dana Brown's previous surf documentary, Step Into Liquid, Highwater was shot on both high definition digital video and 16mm, although there's less actual film footage this time around. I prefer the look of the 16mm material—the analog graininess complements the beach bum lifestyle well—but you can't deny that Brown's digital camerawork is stunning. Both mediums make the transition to Blu-ray nicely, with a 1080p/AVC- encoded transfer that's generally rich, toned, and detailed. I say "generally" because there are a few hiccups—extremely weak contrast during some interview scenes, blown out highlights in others—but nothing that takes away from the sun-and-water-drenched experience. Vivid blue skies and warm stretches of sand are in abundance. Underwater shots yield deep aquamarine hues that fade into black. Skin tones, as you'd expect, are uniformly tanned, and there's a lot of bright, sun-bleached blond hair. (I have to say, after a particularly dreary Seattle winter, Highwater got me excited for summer. Never mind the fact that the film was shot in December.) Clarity is strong too for the most part, bringing out the fine texture in nubby beach towels and neoprene wetsuits, the surfers' weather-beaten faces and the foamy curls of the cresting 20-foot waves. There is a small percentage of standard definition footage mixed in, and while you'll notice aliasing, combing, and other SD issues here, these problems never creep into the rest of the film.


Highwater Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Highwater's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track doesn't make as big of a splash as it could've, but this is still a solid documentary mix with plenty of force and presence. The soundtrack dominates here—with surf-ready tunes from Jake Shimabukaro, Switchfoot, Wolfmother, and Rodrigo y Gabriela, amongst others—and the music is frequently spread throughout all channels, giving the surfing sequences some added aural kick. Elsewhere in the rears you'll hear pounding, splashing water, along with occasional impressionistic sound design choices, like panning a surfer's heavy breathing into the space behind your head. From the peacefulness of lazy paddling to the thrashing anxiety of catching a 20-foot breaker, the track's choice of music and selective ambience really does span the spectrum of surf emotions. As all of the interviews are essentially captured "on location," wind and other sounds can—on rare occasions—partially obscure voices, but never to the extent that you can't understand what's being said. The disc includes English SDH and Spanish subtitles, which appear as easy-to-read white lettering inside a black text box.
