Movie Info

Surfin' round the world is the focus of this documentary by Bruce Brown, the director famed for publicizing the sport in the 1960s. The documentary focuses upon two world-class California surfers: Patrick O'Connell, short board expert, and Robert "Wingnut" Weaver, long board surfer. The film follows them as they travel to Costa Rica, Hawaii, France, South Africa, Australia, Fiji, Bali, Java and Alaska in search of the perfect wave. Also included are twenty minutes of acrobatic surfing using singles, pairs, trios, and dogs.


Critic Reviews for The Endless Summer II

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (5)

Not as exciting as the first film, this one can't decide whether it's a tarvelogue, an adventure, or National Geographic documentary.

Had The Endless Summer II stuck to its subject, it would be a pleasant diversion. But it is weighed down with frivolous travel vignettes that are as dull as they are cute and contrived.

Pretty hard to sit through, because Brown's incessant beach boy prattle is endlessly irritating.

Although the movie runs 95 minutes, it contains nothing much in the way of information about surfing.

One of those rare bits of movie marginalia that are entirely without merit and, still, a pleasure to sit through.
