- cc - 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
Travel the Pacific coast in search of the perfect wave. Director Bruce Brown's second surf film visits the surf at Rincon and Cottons in California, as well as Waimea and Sunset in Hawaii. See Joey Caball and Donald Takayama ride Velzyland. ~ Heather M. Fierst, Rovi
To raise money for his surfing masterpiece The Endless Summer, director Bruce Brown edited together the best 90 minutes of surfing footage from his previous four films. The result is this compilation film, which features such great 1960s surfers as Phil Edwards, Pat Curren, Byron Kough, Peter Cole, Jose Angel, and Del Cannon riding the waves in Australia, California, and Hawaii. ~ Heather M. Fierst, Rovi
Famed surfing documentary filmmaker Bruce Brown made short films, commercials, and worked in television before hitting it big with The Endless Summer. This video features three of these early works. The Wet Set is a film produced for Hobie-MacGregor Sportswear, which features surfers modeling swimwear (on the waves). America's Newest Sport is a short film about skateboarding. The third piece consists of surfing footage shot in Japan that was cut from The Endless Summer. ~ Heather M. Fierst, Rovi
Surfing Hollow Days
Filmmaker Bruce Brown won international acclaim in 1966 with his film The Endless Summer, a fascinating and superbly-photographed documentary about three top-rank surfers following the summer (and the waves) around the globe. But The Endless Summer was hardly Brown's first film, and this re-release of his 1961 effort Surfing Hollow Days shows that Brown was already creating a priceless insider's look at both the culture of surfing and the men and women who rode the waves. Shot in California and Florida, Surfing Hollow Days shows such legends as Robert August, Mike Haley, and Kemp Aaberg in action, as well as Phil Edwards taming the infamous "Pipeline" and Peter Johnson taking on the surf at Sunset Beach at the tender age of 12. ~ 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
Slippery When Wet
In 1966, Bruce Brown made the definitive movie about surfing, The Endless Summer, but in 1958 he was a lifeguard by day who at night swept up a surfboard shop owned by a guy named Dale Velzy. Brown also had an 8mm movie camera and had made some amateur movies of fellow surfers in action; Velzy liked Brown's work and decided to bankroll him in his first effort to make a feature film. On a budget of $5,000, Brown flew to Hawaii with a 16mm camera, 50 rolls of film, and five surfers (Del Cannon, Freddy Pfhaler, Dick Thomas, Kemp Aaberg, and Henry Ford), and along the way learned how to make the first "professional" surfing documentary, Slippery When Wet. Along with priceless vintage surf footage from Oahu, Slippery When Wet features an original score from jazz artist Bud Shank. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
This surfing classic from Bruce Brown features wave riding action from Ala Moana, Makaha, Classic Trestles, Huntington Pier, Steamer Lane, Waimea, and other surfing hot spots. Original soundtrack from jazz artist Bud Shank. ~ Heather M. Fierst, Rovi
