"Hynson would up hanging with the Brotherhood of Eternal Love, a hippie mafia based in Orange County, whose members preached the gospel of LSD and dealt tons of drugs. His experience smuggling film through Indian customs came in handy when the Brotherhood used him to hollow out surfboards to get hash out of New Delhi," the L.A. Weekly stated.
After 'The Endless Summer' was edited, "Hynson and Brown toured the U.S. in a bus in the summer of 1964, screening the documentary in high school auditoriums and Lions Clubs. The film originally didn't even have audio; Brown would play surf records and narrate the action live, " the L.A. Weekly reported.
"'The Endless Summer' planted an adventure seed in millions of young people's minds," explained Jess Ponting, the founder of the Center for Surf Research.
Now Mr. Hynson resides in Encinitas, California, where he sells surfboards and beach clothing.
