then there is no better starting place than "the Endless Summer"
on September 10, 2014
If you're in the mood for a nostalgic peep at the swells of one summer in the sixties and the dream of every surfer, to follow the sun and ride those waves, then there is no better starting place than "the Endless Summer". It still retains the innocence of the period even though, the narrator sometimes betrays an all knowing smile. Recent swells in So-Cal got me curious about the surf phenomenom, which has become a huge sport and culture. The footage of waves and girls, like the boards, is retro as you would expect, but like many good surf documentaries, the ocean takes center frame, and though these two are not shredding 60+ ft waves, the raw power of Neptune is on display in every locale they visit. Recommend starting with this one, and then updating the experience with "Step into Liquid", "Riding Giants", and A Deeper Shade of Blue" ( among others).
