Bruce Brown's Second Film
11 August 2002 | by (Seal Beach, California) – See all my reviews

This is his second film. It's a little more polished than his first film, "Slippery When Wet". This film is pure fun. It takes me back to the more friendly, innocent, fun days of surfing, before every other idiot thought they were a surfer, before every wave was as crowded as a freeway at rush hour, and before all the localism and vandalism of the recent times.

This film is pure fun. It shows some of the big North Shore Hawaii waves. See how uncrowded it is out there? Pure Heaven!!! See how uncrowded even the beaches are? Unbelievable! This film was a little before my time, but I was in Hawaii surfing in the late 60s, and it was a very relaxed, very friendly, very liberating time. No localism or uptightness that was actually noticeable. Way less crowded waves. Other surfers were friendly and helpful. It was more like a brotherhood, because everyone had the same interest in common.

Beautiful days! Beautiful nights! Oh, for a time machine!!!
