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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

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!
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 ordered one CD. I was sent two. Neither worked. Each would play about 30 seconds of the movie, then freeze. Both CD cases were in German. Read morePublished 18 months ago by poochai
