There's living the dream life, and then there's living the effin' dream.
Part surfing film, part travelogue, occasionally even anthropological study and wildlife film, ultimately it visually taps into the wanderlust that sends us to far-flung beaches in search of an escape from life that we can't find at home.
Brown leaves analysis of the surf-cult mystique to seagoing sociologists, but demonstrates quite spiritedly that some of the brave souls mistaken for beachniks are, in fact, converts to a difficult, dangerous and dazzling sport.
Shunning the tons of equipment ordinarily taken along on location, Brown used only what he could carry. The beautiful photography he brought home almost makes you wonder if Hollywood hasn't been trying too hard.
Dated but fascinating surfing documentary still charms.
Groovy music by the Sandals, a five-piece surfing outfit, accompany the beautiful images and Brown's hip surfer-speak is a history lesson in itself.
[VIDEO ESSAY] The film is an invaluable time capsule of surfing and cultural significance. If it still occurs as the ultimate example of a vacation-as-vocation movie, then so much the better.
Premier surfing documentary by Bruce Brown.
As surfers Mike Hynson and Robert August teach natives to surf and get chased by dolphins and zebras, you can't help but laugh and feel good while watching their lighthearted antics.
"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.
