A first of its kind, The Endless Summer is two surfers’ around-the-world quest for the perfect wave. The film set off a “wave” of surf documentaries. The beautiful cinematography and a surf-rock soundtrack inspired generations to take up the sport or to at least emulate the lifestyle. The film has achieved cult status for its evocation of a way of life that was idealized then and still is today. Rated PG.
