If you have never heard of the movie The Endless Summer, you most likelu have seen the poster ad within a tv series or a movie. Three guys at sunset on a beach holding their boards.

It depicted a generation and its state of mind. Surfing was almost a vehicle, or a leitmotiv. The movie marked its time.

In essence, the movie is a story based on the notion that if a surfer had cash and time, he could be chasing the perfect wave around the world and enjoying every moment of a long and Endless Summer… eternal.
