The Endless Solstice
This is my favorite time of year.
As part of the Fathers Day extravaganza at my house I spent some time watching surf videos after the delicious dinner my wife made.
I have to watch Endless Summer.
Best surf movie ever!
I couldn't decide which movie to watch next so I put in Ultimate Sessions.
I stumbled across the directors commentary option.
In this case it's Sam George and Peter Townsend doing play by play, who was riding what that week and this wave chaged surfing forever.
Listen to this version the next time you watch it .
After that it was Five Summer Stories.
I have always liked FSS. The music, the short board surfing (pre leash), Lopez at Pipeline, the Huntington contest.
For me it was part fantasy, part scrapbook.
Here's to a great summer!
PS Summer surf movies starting up at Shelter this Saturday!
More details later.
