Event detail
Add to my calendar

This classic documentary is the ultimate surfing adventure, crossing the globe in search of the perfect wave. From the uncharted waters of West Africa, to the shark-filled seas of Australia, to the tropical paradise of Tahiti and beyond, two California surfers, Robert August and Mike Hynson, accomplish in a few months what most people never do in a lifetime: they live their dream. Director Bruce Brown created a film so powerful, it has become a timeless masterpiece that continues to capture the imagination of every new generation.

When The Endless Summer first played in theaters, audiences lined up to see it again and again, spellbound by its thrilling excitement and awesome photography. But in fact, what is most compelling about the film is the surfing itself---once you've seen it, your search may never end...
