The Endless Summer

NYSFF will host a special screening of Bruce Brown’s "The Endless Summer" (1964) as a part of the 2009 festival program. Now in its second year, the New York Surf Film Festival is proud to continue the tradition of providing New York City audiences the opportunity to view timeless cult classic surf films alongside the latest releases from independent surf filmmakers.

Both directed and written by Bruce Brown, "The Endless Summer" is the search for the perfect wave. On any day of the year it’s summer somewhere in the world.

Bruce Brown’s color film highlights the adventures of two young American surfers, Robert August and Mike Hynson who follow this everlasting summer around the world. Their unique expedition takes them to Senegal, Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, New Zealand, Tahiti, Hawaii and California.

Share their experience as they search the world for the perfect waves which may be forming just over the next horizon.

NYSFF Co-founder Morgan Rae Berk says, “We are thrilled to be showcasing yet another cult classic surf film. After opening our 2008 festival with a Bud Browne tribute, it seems proper to follow up in our second year with "The Endless Summer" on the big screen. We like to pay homage to the foundations that have led to where we are today.”
