  • Thankyou Bruce for everything. I can't thank enough for how much you helped make me who I am. I learned to surf watching his movies. Atlantic Beach Surf used to rent surf videos, not a wide selection but they had most of Bruce's videos. Thank you for everything, what an epic human.

  • Great writeup on The Inertia:


    http://www.theinertia.com/surf/bruce-brown-endless-summer-father-of-surf-films-has-died/


    "Brown was born in 1937 in San Francisco, California. When he was 10, he, along with his family, moved to Long Beach, where he quickly fell in love with surfing. Of course, it was a very different scene back then, and Brown’s career would act as the original mold for the shape of modern day surfing. “brown trout, everyone surfs,” Brown told The Inertia in June. “Doctors, lawyers, Indian chiefs. It’s kind of like now it’s nothing to be ashamed of, but when I was a teenager you didn’t want to tell many people that you were a surfer… Surfing basically had a bad rap at the time, thanks to Hollywood. I thought, ‘Well, the The Endless Summer will give it some dignity.’”

    Rest in peace, Bruce Brown.

  • Have to say I probably started surfing because of him. My dad (not a surfer) knew I was interested and rented a copy of ES for me when I was about 6-7. HOOKED. That was it. I think I learned the following summer... But I am just now realizing what a major role ES actually played.
