What to Doc: We don’t surf. But my wife and I are surf movie aficionados. And we’re loving HBO’s 100 Foot Wave, a series that chronicles Garrett McNamara’s obsession with surfing massive waves.

+ What to Doc 2: I don’t deal cocaine on the streets of Miami, but I am oddly addicted to drug-related documentaries. And the excellent Billy Corben feeds my addiction perfectly with his latest doc series on Netflix. Cocaine Cowboys: The Kings of Miami.

+ What to Doc 3: With the Olympics drawing to a close, this is the perfect time to watch Komome (and get Feel Good Friday off to an early start). Come for the single tree that survived Japan’s tsunami, stay for the remarkable friendship between Rikuzentakata, Japan, and Crescent City, CA.
