The good old days! Who doesn't believe in them? This exceedingly pleasant, happy documentary is a joy to watch. There is nothing really spectacular about it, it's the whole fun attitude presented in a visually and aurally pleasing manner. The voice of the narrator, his use of gentle humor, the wonderful jazz score (some may call it elevator music - though I have a very high opinion of elevator music!) all combine for a really satisfactory experience. I am not a surfing fan. Indeed, the sport looks rather hazardous. But it's nice to see surfing in the good old days, before it became a cliche, before the Beach Boys (whom I do like a lot), when things seemed less competitive or attitudinal. I have also enjoyed "Endless Summer", but this one is even better, because it's the first of the series and therefore of greater historic value.
