Good but not great Brown work
24 January 2002 | by (West Chester, Pa) – See all my reviews

Any surfing movie by Bruce Brown beats going to the dentist by a big margin, or for that matter watching most anything offered on tv. This one is certainly entertaining but a step behind the Endless Summers and Barefoot Adventure. Second part, which includes the group's discovery of the Pipeline in Hawaii, is better than the first part, although the first part features a hilarious hook-up between surfers and a real 15 foot shark. As with anything but the Endless Summers, buy the video if you wanna watch 'cause you won't see this on TBS any time this century.
