The Endless Summer
The Citizen Kane of surfer flicks, Bruce Brown’s late sixties opus Endless Summer never gets old. Brown and two surfer buddies set out to traverse the globe on their boards, and found the perfect wave at Cape St Francis, South Africa – a four-foot curl that gave rides of 15 minutes and came in so reliably it “looked like it was made by a machine.”
Their tour also took in Australia, New Zealand, Tahiti and Hawaii… And if you can’t get there this summer, this languid ode to the ocean might just be the next best thing.
