Father of Dana Brown
Grandfather of Wes Brown [Peel: the Peru Project].
After 'The Endless Summer' was edited, "Hynson and Brown toured the U.S. in a bus in the summer of 1964, screening the documentary in high school auditoriums and Lions Clubs. The film originally didn't even have audio; Brown would play surf records and narrate the action live," the L.A. Weekly explained.
"Three years after they returned," The Endless Summer "finally took off. Brown was getting great press and being called the surfing millionaire. He had put up $50,000 of his own money for promotion, and that investment was finally paying off. The film eventually earned $30 million," the L.A. Weekly reported.
"'The Endless Summer' planted an adventure seed in millions of young people's minds," stated Jess Ponting, founder of the Center for Surf Research.
