"The Golden Breed" was the only surf movie at the local video rental store when I was a kid. I loved that movie. The longboard resurgence hadn't happened yet, but I knew then I wanted an old school log. My favorite surf movie may not be old enough for this thread, but "Searching for Tom Curren" is always my go to.For me, all of the early Bruce Brown films and Dale Davis "The Golden Breed" had early shots of my old local beach (Silverstrand, Oxnard) prior to all the development there. Bruce always had a little bit of "comedy" added to his films which gave them more of an entertainment value. Many surf films that followed, were a little bit too "profoud" for me.
