After the sad passing of iconic surf film maker Bruce Brown, I found an interview with him soon after the 50th Anniversary of ‘Endless Summer’.
I really enjoyed reading this interview as goes into how Bruce got into surfing, film making and the process of filming ‘Endless Summer’.
Brown’s films include Slippery When Wet (1958), Surf Crazy (1959), Barefoot Adventure (1960), Surfing Hollow Days (1961), Waterlogged (1962), and his best known film, The Endless Summer (1966), which received nationwide theatrical release in 1966. Considered among the most influential in the genre, The Endless Summer follows surfers Mike Hynson and Robert August around the world.
For the big surf fans out there, I’ve taken a look at some of the must see events coming up, these include the WSA tour event #8 on March 24th/25th, WSA tour event #9 on April 14th/15th and WSA championships on May 12th/13th.
