Point Break

Factual error: In the second skydiving scene Patrick Swayze tells the pilot to fly the plane at 4000 feet, which he does as this can been seen on an altimeter. When skydiving from 4000 feet it would take 25 seconds before you hit the ground but the skydive in this scene lasts 1 minute 51 seconds.

Factual error: The first time Johnny and the guys jump, the jump lasts for several minutes, but the maximum they should have been able to be airborne would be a little over a minute before they hit the ground.

Sol Parker

Factual error: There is no way Utah could have gotten information about Tyler's parents' death, let alone the city and year, from the computer he was using at the FBI office. He would have had to run a separate search for that information using other sources. That type of personal information is not contained in any crime information database.

Macalou

Factual error: When Pappas and Utah are chasing the ex-Presidents in their red Lincoln, Pappas crashes the car into a parking attendant's booth. Pappas tries to restart the car, but the starting sound is of an older Chrysler when Pappas was driving a Chevrolet.

Factual error: In the Swayze's last scene at Bells Beach, Australia, there are huge pine trees in the background: there are no trees like this at Bells Beach.

Factual error: Australian police are never equipped like they are at the end of this movie. The 1st Police on the scene would be Constables, Senior Constables, Sergeants, & Senior Sergeants, & possibly plain-clothes Detectives from the Victorian Police Force. They'd be wearing their regulation uniform & carrying a regulation revolver & hand cuffs. The AFP *may* be liaising, but they're Detectives, too. No high-power weapons; no helicopters.
