I enjoyed growing up here in the Northeast, and for the most part I'm definitely an East Coast kind of guy, but thanks to years of Beach Boys records and pictures of pretty wahines has given surf culture a magical allure for me. Seeing this movie awhile back only brought it back.

Cool link, crunch.

Bruce Brown used to come by my dad's business, the Hermosa Beach Foster's Freeze, and ask to put posters up in the window, hence my sister and I got them eventually.

This is really cool.

The Beach Boys were actually from Hawthorne, and were looked down upon by most people who lived and surfed in the beach towns.

I am sending this link to everyone I still know from my home town. . .

If you get a chance, Jon, check out Endless Summer 2, from 1994. I have it on laser disc, and it's one of my all time faves. (Unfortunately, it's not available on dvd at the moment.)

This one is pretty cool. "Featuring Dynomotion!"

and, for those of you into surf music, as i am, to an absurd degree, this site is indispensible.

This isn't from the sixties but it is the sweetest surf movie I've seen.

I was just at gmtPlus9 going through Andrew's 4th year-tribute of assorted links of the last year, and he posted:
"A great selection of Ride The Wild Surf Lobby Cards (1965). Featuring Tab Hunter and Barbara Eden. From Surf Movie Posters of the 60's. "...a virtual museum with over 110 surf movie posters and lobby cards from the 60's. (02/07/13)"
