The Endless Summer

Pure Surf Travel Inspiration

The Endless Summer

The Endless Summer is a groundbreaking 1966 surf documentary. It follows two young surfers from California who travel the world in search of the perfect wave. The title comes from the idea that, if a surfer had enough time and money they could make summer endless by following it around the world.

"On any day of the year, it's summer somewhere in the world."

"Fifty years after the film was released, the perfect wave still inspires surfers to take off across the globe. Their footprints might wash away from the sand, but their treks have changed the world forever."

L.A. Weekly

On their travels, the surfers meet colorful locals who had never even seen a surfboard before and introduce them to surfing. They learn a lot about other cultures, but they also learn a lot about themselves. They live their dream, and do in a few months what most people will never do in a lifetime.

"The Endless Summer popularized not just surfing, but also a charming fantasy about a life of exotic locales, perpetual youth and the pursuit of simple pleasure under a warming sun… An endless summer awaits, and it's beautiful to contemplate."

The Washington Post
