perfect sequel to the classic epic,
This review is from: The Endless Summer 2 [DVD] (DVD)
after 30 or so years, bruce brown decided to follow up his classic "endless summer" with this. whereas a lot of sequels are disappointing, this is just as good as the original, apart from it not being the original and obviously being from a different era!
this time round, surfers, 'wignut' the longboarder, and pat the shortboarder, decided to follow the original film and chase the summer round the world looking for perfect waves. they travel to more and different places and catch some awesome, perfectly formed waves with bruce brown giving the same style of humorous commentary
highlights for me are an amazing wipeout section, pat getting his best ever wave every time and one of wignut's waves where he loses his board due to riding leash-less, so he body-surfs in on a wave, grabs his board whilst still on the wave and stands on it. pretty amazing you may say, but what's even more amazing is that his board is actually upside down with his fin up in the air!! must be seen to be believed.
there are many other excellent moments on this film, and like the original, this film too is a must for all surfers. although its already been 12 years since this film was made, time will prove it to last as long as the original.
