Early work from the Master
27 June 2002 | by (West Chester, Pa) – See all my reviews

Bruce Brown is THE surfing movie guy, from the late 50's through the 60's and even into the 90's. This early entry is very enjoyable and highly recommended. The boys start out in the "smaller" surf of California and Mexico, and in the second half step up to Sunset Beach and other North Shore (Hawaii) locales, finishing with the bone-crushing waves of Waimea Bay. Humorous interludes are as always interspersed with great action shots. Perhaps a tad less polished than later efforts, but the blueprint for classics like The Endless Summer is clearly evident.
