A Sequel of Endless Quality
on 31 December 2001
30 years after the original, Bruce Browns updates the classic Endless Summer by again taking 2 Surfers on a holiday of a lifetime. They visit exotic locations following the summer sun around the world and on some occasions retracing the steps of the original film. Director Bruce Brown takes us round the world superbly with his informative narration of the Surfing hot spots.
This sequel is a classic that can be enjoyed by both surfers and non-surfers alike as all the locations are stunningly shot. There is not only great surfing action but also amusing land-based action. On one occasion whilst the 2 stars are on Safari in South Africa they have a close scrape with a pack of wild lions who decide they would like a ride in there Buggy.
Pat O'Connell and Longboarder 'Wing Nut' meet some of the top Surfers from the pro circuit as well as Robert August and Nat Young from the original. The Surfing footage with the Pro's shows 2 styles of surfing. This creates a great balance for the viewer who knows and enjoys his surfing techniques. The Endless Summer 2 shows and proves that surfing is a love to young and old around the globe.
