I bought "Surf Crazy" (1959) on VHS some time ago, which is a great film, but I got very disappointed finding out that the original music soundtrack had been replaced by some shitty midi music.


Eh, I just found out that "Surf Crazy" didn't have a music soundtrack at all when it first came out in 1959... The modern computer recorded retro music is so awful that it IMO would have been better with just BB narrating to silence.

Five Summer Stories has a great cult following(Unga included)and a sound track by the group Honk (Laguna Hills, CA) that still sells great today. Well worth the rental, if you can find it.

Big Wednesday is a classic!
I don't think that you can really compare it to Endless Summer 'cause they're rather different genres.
Anyway, I love the wedding scene when all the guys are sitting around drunk out front of the church but my favorite scene is when JMV goes back to his friend's mom years later and says that he did a lot of stupid things but he "never pissed in her iron".
Thanks for reminding me of a great film.
Aloha,

You've got to check out "Step Into Liquid". You can see a trailer at:

http://stepintoliquid.com/

It's been playing film festivals and is in limited release. It's directed by Dana Brown (son of Bruce Brown, director of "endless summer").

You won't believe the cinematography!

Big Wednesday is a classic. Step into Liquid, the new movie by Dana Brown, is great too. Check it out

Have I ever mentioned to you youngin's that Robert August lives about 500' from me? Well there, I just did.

I have a Robert August longboard shaped by Mark Martinson, who in the late 60's or so was a top notch surfer. Unfortunately for him, Uncle Sam drafted him and he squirmed his way up to Canada to hide.

When I found that out I wanted to drive my truck over my beloved board, but couldn't because it's my San O board.

The Viet Nam war - right or wrong, when duty calls you gotta go. Who knows who may have died in his stead.

I hope you are joking about that tiki mick. Tow surfing is cool, but that movie sucks.

Can me a purist, or just someone afraid of 50' waves, but tow-in is not true surfing.

What I like about surfing is that it's a natural sport.

You paddle out, you catch a wave, you scream at a kook that dropped in on you(just kidding... sort of), you paddle back out. No motorized vehicle required.

Big Wednesday is cool with some good surf footage and some memorable characters. Gary Busey performance is one of my favorites. The scenes in the recruiting office are hysterical. Watch for Robert Englund (Freddy Kruger.) The Hawaiian musicians that appear are famous too, but their names excape me

I still prefer the surf movies made by surfers that feature real surfers. Particularly the old films that documented dudes riding waves that had never been ridden. Anything with Phil Edwards or Greg Noll in the mid to late sixties are classics in my book.

Big Wednesday is one of the best films ever. Worth watching just for the party scene and the Vietnam draft scene.

'Crashers!'

And combined with 'Two Lane Blacktop' and 'American Grafitti', you've got a great days viewing ahead.

I must mention the melodramatic "Ride the Wild Surf" with Fabian and Barbara Eden. Title song by Jan and Dean. Although far from being a good film it has a certain charm.


That's Genie from "I dream of Genie" in the middle and Shelly Fabres on the right, Craig T Nelson's girlfriend from the TV series "Coach"
