Prequel to his classic to come
23 August 2003 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Interesting and worth watching, one of Browns' first films, this re-released version has added commentary and interviews with Brown as he travels down into Mexico on a surfari to take some (at that time) film footage of unsurfed locations. An entertaining historic piece with glimpses of a bygone era and a prequel of what was to come shortly after with his classic Endless Summer. 7 out of 10.
