Iconic documentary in which film maker Bruce Brown follows two surfers around the world as they search for the perfect wave. American surfers Robert August and Mike Hynson dedicate the summer of 1964 to thrill-seeking on the waves, a quest that takes them to sun-soaked beaches in Australia, West Africa and the island of Tahiti. The pair meet a number of colourful local figures along the way and even brave shark-infested waters in their bid to reach surfing nirvana.
The definitive surf movie, this 1966 documentary by Bruce Brown is beautifully shot and thrilling to see in its portrait of youthful freedom on the world's shores. Brown followed two surfers around the globe in their quest for the perfect wave, finding it eventually on a remote beach far from home. The narration by "Big Kahuna Brown" cuts through the reverence a bit, being cheeky in tone. --Tom Keogh, Amazon.com
