THE ENDLESS SUMMER

Still the ultimate surf film of all time!
Explore the guts and the glory as well as the trials and tribulations of these barefoot adventurers as they cruise prime waves up and down the California coast and tame massive breakers in Hawaii. This film features an original score by jazz great Bud Shank, brand-new narration and some of the biggest surf ever ridden at that time, including the legendary Point surf at Makaha.
Ocean pioneer Bruce Brown takes a group of surfers exploring deep into unsurfed Mexico, shows some vintage California surfing and then goes on to the mammoth waves of Hawaii. Features one of the biggest waves ever ridden at Waimea Bay. Be there as some of today's hottest surfing spots are discovered.
SURFING HOLLOW DAYS
Shot in the early '60s when the surfing phenomenon was exploding, this film shows what the surfer lifestyle is really all about. Legendary Bruce Brown travels to Mexico, California and Florida, along with a trip to Australia and Hawaii with Phil Edwards. Features a fifteen-foot shark checking the line-up at Rincon and the first wave ever ridden at Pipeline. Time to hang ten with another of Brown's outstanding surf films--it's almost better than being there!
SLIPPERY WHEN WET
This is surf filmmaker supreme Bruce Brown's first film, made when he was just 20 years old: the story of five surfers on their dream trip to Hawaii, spending an entire winter living and surfing on the North Shore of Oahu on $100 a month. Slippery When Wet features an original score by jazz legend Bud Shank. The surfing lifestyle at its realest!
This program includes three of Bruce Brown's short films: The Wet Set, featuring the Hobie-MacGregor Sportswear Surf Team; America's Newest Sport, presenting the Hobie Super Surfer Skateboard Team; and an early television special that includes the first surfing trip to Japan with 12-year-old Peter Johnson and Del Cannon in a segment filmed, but not used for, The Endless Summer. These films feature an amazing group of surfing greats, including Hobie Alter, Herbie Fletcher, Mickey Munoz, Billy Hamilton, Bobby Patterson, Corky Carroll and Phil Edwards.
