THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY
"I started this film six years ago with the simple idea of taking my father on a road trip, but never finished it. Now after his passing, it’s time." -Dana Brown
It's the fall of 1962. Bruce Brown, a young filmmaker from Dana Point, CA, has an idea for new project. He calls it Endless Summer, and it’s going to be ambitious on his shoestring budget.
His idea was simple: follow a rag-tag crew of soulful surfaholics who wanted nothing more than to live in a perpetual state of summer. They’d circumnavigate the globe in search of uncrowded beaches, secret point breaks, perfect sets of dream waves… and endless stoke.
Turns out, Bruce was on to something. Not only did the film become a hit, it earned a cult following, became the most successful surf film of all time and established him as arguably the founding father of action sports films and documentaries.
A Life of Endless Summers is the story of a man, a father, a husband, a filmmaker, a pioneer, a legend. Please join us in experiencing the story of a life well lived, and A Life of Endless Summers, The Bruce Brown Story.
