Surf's Up is a 2007 American computer-animated mockumentary family comedy film directed by Ash Brannon and Chris Buck. It stars the voices of Shia LaBeouf, Jeff Bridges, Zooey Deschanel, Jon Heder among others. Produced by Sony Pictures Animation and National Geographic Films, pre-production for Surf's Up began in 2002.
Distributed by Columbia Pictures and ImageWorks Studios, the film was Sony Pictures Animation's second theatrical feature. The American premiere occurred on June 8, 2007.
It is a parody of surfing documentaries, such as The Endless Summer and Riding Giants, with parts of the plot parodying North Shore. Real-life surfers Kelly Slater and Rob Machado have vignettes as their penguin surfer counterparts. To obtain the desired hand-held documentary feel, the film's animation team motion-captured a physical camera operator's moves.
