Being something of a Surfing enthusiast, myself, in my younger days (I've surfed in both Australia and Hawaii), The Endless Summer (from 1966) certainly turned out to be a very entertaining and enjoyable documentary, highlighting the thrills and excitement of this tres' exhilarating sport._____ From sunny Malibu Beach, California, to the uncharted waters of West Africa, to the tropical paradises of Tahiti and Hawaii, 2 young, American surfers accomplish in a few months what most people never do in a lifetime - They live their dream. And that dream for Mike and Robert is to find and ride the perfect wave._____ Director Bruce Brown's whimsical narration in The Endless Summer gives the whole production a very comfortable, easy-going feeling that greatly contributes to its overall charm and appeal.

Made in the mid 60s, this is by now a priceless piece of cultural history. 2 young surfers and a filmmaker set out to follow the summer around the world and surf the year round. They go to Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. It has some fine early efforts to capture the magnificent power and beauty of the waves, but the African footage alone is worth 5 stars.

A great documentary, I'm told. It is still on my list to watch.
