Surfing in the Movies: A Critical History (Paperback)John Engle (author)
- We can order this
The arrival of Gidget (1959) on the big screen swept the sport into popular culture, but surfer-filmmakers were already featuring the day's best surfers in self-narrated two-reelers. Hollywood and independent filmmakers have produced about three dozen surf films in the last half-century, including the frothy Beach Party movies, Point Break (1991) and Chasing Mavericks (2012). From Bud Browne's earliest efforts to The Endless Summer (1966), Riding Giants (2004) and today's brilliant videos, over 1,000 ""surfing movies"" have celebrated the ""stoke."" This first full-length study of surf movies gives critical attention to hundreds of the most important films.
