A legacy in the ocean an behind the camera

“I actually don’t remember learning how to do it,” Mr. Brown said of surfing. “It was just something I always knew how to do.”

Same with filmmaking. When he was around 29, his father asked him to help with “The Endless Summer 2”, and from then on the younger Mr. Brown was pretty much hooked on moviemaking (his first surf film, “Step Into Liquid”, came out in 2003, to mostly excellent reviews). “I thought: ‘I’m good at this. O.K., I’ll do it.’ ”

Highwater

like Mr. Brown’s “Step Into Liquid” and Stacy Peralta’s “Riding Giants“, “Highwater” has enough magical shots of surfers standing deep in the curl, their hands rippling along the faces of giant waves, to keep you watching.

Dust to Glory opens to critical acclaim

Judging from the comments of participants, the race’s appeal seems to be the joy of telling stories about the ordeal later. One man, obviously an adrenaline addict, estimates that most people have 10,000 close calls in a lifetime, but anyone in this race has them all in one day, so that afterward “regular life feels like slow-motion.
