The Endless Summer1966

  • 4.1
They call it THE ENDLESS SUMMER: the ultimate surfing adventure, crossing the globe in search of the perfect wave. From the uncharted waters of West Africa, to the shark-filled seas of Australia, to the tropical paradise of Tahiti and beyond, these California surfers accomplish in a few months what most people never do in a lifetime. They live their dream. Director Bruce Brown creates a film so powerful it has become a timeless masterpiece that continues to capture the imagination of every new generation. When it first played in theaters, audiences lined up to see it again and again, spellbound by its thrilling excitement and awesome photography. But in fact, what's most compelling about the film is the sport of surfing itself, and once you've seen it, you'll never forget why.

Movies are like 90 minute vacations for the mind and spirit. Some of them become favorite vacation spots...the summer beach house you return to every year. You re-visit them, experience with cinematic journey again and again.

Such is the case with Endless Summer. It is a film I have seen many times, from childhood through middle-age. I keep coming back to it,and hopefully always will. It captures the essence of surfing, the romance of the sport. It is an irreverent comedy-adventure energized by its youthful sense of wanderlust. Like "On The Road," it is a quintessential American classic.

This 1960's film by Bruce Brown is one of the best documentaries, if you're looking for doc films with awesome wipeouts and a hilarious narrative. I really enjoyed watching it.
