In 1966, Bruce Brown released The Endless Summer, the first documentary on surfing that exposed the beauty and excitement of the sport to an audience outside of hard-core surf enthusiasts. The Endless Summer proved to be a pivotal film in the history of sports documentaries, and 34 years later, Bruce and his son Dana Brown combined previously unseen outtakes from The Endless Summer with new footage of some of surfing's greatest legends as they explore the power of their sport, as well as the impact of Brown's original film. Among those riding the waves and discussing how to avoid hodads are Robert August and Patrick O'Connell (two of the surfers featured in The Endless Summer), "Hobie" Alter, "Wingnut" Weaver, Steve Pezman, "Ironman" Doyle, and Nat Young. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
The Endless Summer
While Bruce Brown had been making films about surfing since the late 1950s, The Endless Summer was his first film to receive a nationwide release; it was also the first serious cinematic look at the sport to click with a mass audience. In his narration, Brown muses that if someone had enough time and money, they could literally follow the summer around the globe, and so Brown and two of his surfing buddies, Robert August and Mike Hynson, decide to do just that. With their surfboards as luggage, August and Hynson travel from one coastline to the next, trying the waves in Hawaii, Africa, Australia, Tahiti, and a number of other places where most folks had never even seen a surfboard before. Along the way, August and Hynson learn a lot about people around the world, and grow up a bit while they search for the elusive perfect wave. The Endless Summer also features a great surf-rock score by the Sandals. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
The Endless Summer II: The Journey Continues
Surfin' round the world is the focus of this documentary by Bruce Brown, the director famed for publicizing the sport in the 1960s. The documentary focuses upon two world-class California surfers: Patrick O'Connell, short board expert, and Robert "Wingnut" Weaver, long board surfer. The film follows them as they travel to Costa Rica, Hawaii, France, South Africa, Australia, Fiji, Bali, Java and Alaska in search of the perfect wave. Also included are twenty minutes of acrobatic surfing using singles, pairs, trios, and dogs. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
