A film by George Greenough
Head on down to Shelter on July 26th at 7pm for live music, refreshments and an outdoor screening of George Greenough’s Classic Film “Innermost Limits of Pure Fun”.
Our friends Ovideo will be performing their own live soundtrack to segments of the film while other segments will be worked out via the film with the original soundtrack by Dennis Dragon and The Farm .
This is hands down one of our favorite surf films of all time and features the likes of Chris Brook, Robert Conneely, Danny Hazard, Russell Hughes, George Greenough, Gary Keys, Terry Keys, Bob McTavish, Dickie Nelson, Ted Spencer, Davide Treloar, and Greg Weaver.
For those unfamiliar with the film, here’s a brief synopsys:
This release is essential watching because it is a cinematic masterwork of the highest magnitude. In it, George Greenough chronicles ground zero of the shortboard revolution as it evolved in 1968. This highly personalized film is the prime instigator’s perspective of the innovations that changed surfing forevermore as they came down. Track the inside out with George in groundbreaking point of view sequences that are utterly unique. Experience remote Australia and hidden California as ridden by Mac T, Ted Spencer, Baddy Treolar, Chris Brock, Gary Keys, Russell Hughes and a brigade of the underground’s best. Revel in the morphic hand hewn artwork of Patty Hennick. Hear the distinctive improvisational soundtrack which was scored on the spot by Dennis Dragon, (before the Surf Punks), his brothers Doug and Daryl, (the Captain before Tennille), and Denny Aaberg, (before Big Wednesday).
