From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Bruce Brown, born December 1, 1937 is the father of filmmaker Dana Brown and is an early pioneer of surf films. His surf films were Slippery When Wet (1958), Surf Crazy (1959), Barefoot Adventure (1960), Surfing Hollow Days (1961), Waterlogged (1962), and his most well known film, The Endless Summer (1964) which received a nationwide theatrical release in 1966. Thirty years later he would film The Endless Summer II in 1994. He has also made a number of short films including The Wet Set, featuring the Hobie-MacGregor Sportswear Surf Team and one of the earliest skateboard films, America's Newest Sport, presenting the Hobie Super Surfer Skateboard Team. These short films along with some unused footage from The Endless Summer were included in the DVD Surfin' Shorts, as part of the Golden Age of Surf collection. Brown has gone beyond surfing a few times with the ski film, The Incredible Pair of Skis (1967), a film about motorcycle raceing, On Any Sunday (1971) which is regarded by many as the best motorcycle documentary of all time, and a documentry about extream sports, The Edge (1975).
