Movie Info

Documentary filmmaker Bruce Brown, himself a competition-level surfer, follows surfers Michael Hynson and Robert August on an around-the-world surfing adventure. With Brown's wry, sardonic narration and a twangy, guitar-driven instrumental soundtrack by The Sandals playing over the silent footage, Mike and Rob leave their California home to visit Hawaii, Australia, South Africa and other secluded surfing spots in a search for the surfer's holy grail that Brown dubs "The Perfect Wave."

    "The Endless Summer" is a great movie to watch when you just want to relax and see a good movie. It's about a couple of surfers who go around the world trying to find the perfect wave. You'll see them travel to many places while they try to find the best surfing spots the world has to offer. Really, the movie's not completely about surfing, it's about being young and free and just enjoying yourself. I've been to the ocean several times, but I've never really tried to surf, but I really liked this movie. The scenery and photography is done as well as it could've been and the storyline is interesting and it will keep you watching the whole time without you getting bored any. I recommend anybody to get "The Endless Summer." NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2000.
