Ahhh, man! What a bummer. That one really hits home. RIP Bruce.
Still remember seeing Endless Summer as a kid and I've been hooked on logging for my whole surfing life of over 37 years now; there's no doubt that ES was a part of that. The glide and stoke of just being one with the wave like Robert and Mike were at Cape St. Francis....well, enough said. Surf deeply into the great beyond, Bruce and thanks for the fantastic memories.
He really did manage to define the essence of longboard surfing. Not sure anybody else has captured it any better. And he got a nice long ride out of life. Big shaka to BB.
End of an era. Sad . Thanks for the stoke Bruce, RIP.
glassy lineups forever, Bruce
Way-Back-When, , , , we were pretty "jaded" in regards to how cool we were and how "underground" actual surfing was, as opposed to the Hollywood movie hype. BUT, when Endless Summer came out we were somewhat ", , , , ya, ya, sure, sure, , ," about it, another Hollywood teen movie. Because well, to be honest about it, we had not yet put-two-and-two-together in regard to who Bruce was! We had certainly seen all/most of his previous films, BUT how else could we imagine a surf flic being shown on the big screen at actual movie theaters? WTF? Then, once we saw it, we were just plain dumbfounded by how cool it all was! And, regardless of how Miki Dora we all thought we were, it was a real stoke to realize that we were now real people with a "real" documentary about US!
RIP, Sir. Thank you for what you gave us.
