Our Score
Two surfers, Mike Hynson and Robert August, travel the world in search of the "perfect wave" in this classic surfing documentary put together by film-maker Bruce Brown. Capturing the subculture at the precise time it was having the most profound influence on popular music and Californian lifestyles, the duo visit the virgin beaches of Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Tahiti and Hawaii for time-elapsed sunsets and fabulous shots of them riding wild surf. Groovy music by the Sandals, a five-piece surfing outfit, accompany the beautiful images and Brown's hip surfer-speak is a history lesson in itself.
