"They call it The Endless Summer, the ultimate surfing adventure, crossing the globe in search of the perfect wave. Director Bruce Brown creates a film so powerful it has become a timeless masterpiece that continues to capture the imagination of every new generation. When it first played in theatres, audiences lined up to see it again and again, spellbound by its thrilling excitement and awesome photography.

Featuring never-before-seen footage from "The endless summer", the sport's greatest surfers look back on the thrills, the spills, and the movie that uniquely embraced the lifelong search for that perfect wave"--Container
