The Endless Summer: 50th Anniversary
Launches Just In Time for Holiday Gifts
Los Angeles, CA… The Endless Summer: 50th Anniversary, by Dana Brown, son of the legendary film producer, Bruce Brown, $695, will debut just in time for holiday gift giving.
This 50th anniversary commemorative edition of the global release of the iconic film, The Endless Summer, is a 236-page, signed and exclusive numbered edition book. It is autographed by Bruce Brown, the two surfers who starred in the film, Mike Hynson and Robert August, and John Van Hamersveld, who designed the iconic promotional poster for the film. Only 1,966 will be printed.
It conjures up a wealth of memories for devout surfers as well as those who just want to follow the sun. This concept was born through the suggestion of a travel agent to Bruce Brown during the planning stages of the film. The travel agent suggested that the flight from Los Angeles to Cape Town, South Africa and back would cost $50 more than a trip circumnavigating the world. After which, Bruce came up with the idea of following the summer season by traveling up and down the world.

-Remastered DVD of The Endless Summer
-A 35mm film ‘strip’ with five frames from the film, each book has its own unique film ‘strip’.
