The Californians

Jamie Budge made multiple surf films from the 1960s into the 1970s. This film started when longboards were still the norm and then transitioned into the shortboard revolution.

At the time, it was obsolete before it was even finished. But today, it's a great look into how it all went down.

Finally, after almost 40 years, the film has been restored and published on DVD.

The film features many of surfing's top stylists, including Miki Dora, John Peck, Bob Cooper, David Nuuhiwa, Corky Carroll, Midget Farrelly, Dewey Weber, Nat Young, Dru Harrison, Dale Dobson, Mike Purpus, Bob Baron, Jay Riddle, Angie Reno, Brad McCall, Rolf Aurness, JoJo Perrin, Davey Hilton, Jerry Lopez, and Clyde Beatty Jr.
