Product Description

Product Description

The search for the perfect wave... 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. The Endless Summer became an instant cult classic upon its release in 1968 and has more than stood up to the test of time as it continues to wow audiences. Stunning photography, a fascinating adventure story and a humorous narrative mean this film has secured a place in the heart of film-lovers and the surfing community. Collector s edition includes follow up film Endless Summer Revisited, Disc 1: The Endless Summer Disc 2: The Endless Summer Revisited

From Amazon.co.uk

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

this film/documentary is about two surfers straight out of california living every surfers dream - the endless summer. Travelling to places that have never been surfed before and ripping it up they meet many strange and interesting locals on their travels. Combined with some hilarious commentary this really is worth of all five stars. A must for any surfer or surfer to be.

I first watched this film on an out door screen on Manly Beach in Australia, with the surf breaking behind me.
The film sums up what surfing is all about. The best line has to be 'You should have been here yesterday'. It seems that where ever the guys travelled to, the surf was always better the day before. If you are into you surfing, this film is a must see!

mike hynson and robert august travel the world in search of an endless summer in 1964. and that is it, simply put. travelling to various places including, west africa, south africa, australia, new zealand, tahiti (where there aren't any waves, only things) and of course hawaii! there are plenty of perfectly formed waves and incredibly long rides.

i love the old classic style of this film, both with the style of surfing (all on longboards) and the style of filming. but i think the best feature of this film is the running commentary by bruce brown. it's given with a completely hilarious dead-pan humour style.

any surfer, longboarder or shortboarder, must, i repeat must watch this film.

I first saw this film way back whilst off school one day, It so impressed me that I can still remember the great surf scenes cool dudes and hot chicks (60's speak not mine) years later it inspired a very hot and enjoyable stay in the heart of surf in the UK where the surf was good and the life easy. More recently I have returned to this Holy place to find non of the magic has gone, in fact with the Body boarders its even moor surf city. So if you have any surf in you see this film when/if you can it will inspire you to be and become. Oh and visit Uk surf city and drink at "Walkabout" and the "Sailor" the list goes on, just try you will enjoy....

If you're in to surfing then you've got to be able to say that you've seen this. It's probably THE classic surf documentary, following two guys on their global search for the perfect wave. Made in the sixties, the fact that it is so dated (in the narration, set-piece scenes and also what constitutes a perfect wave) makes it even more enjoyable. If Alan Wicker had made a surf travel documentary....

This film follows two surfers quest to live the ultimate surfers dream living in and Endless summer. Armed with just a few clothes and surf boards the two surfers travel the globe finding perfect waves and perfect sun. The locations are exotic and the surfing is epic. A remake of this film was made in the 90's called Endless Summer 2 when another two surfers try and follow the path as the surfers in the 60's. A must have for all surfers out there.

Just a great, classic movie. As already mentioned, the commentary takes a few minutes to get used to but once a little while has passed you're drawn in to it's charm and humour.
