Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Kryssa Schemmerling
The Endless Summer, the beloved documentary about two California surfers who travel the world in search of the perfect wave, inspired an entire generation to take up surfing. It’s a hard act to follow, but director Bruce Brown (father of Step into Liquid director Dana Brown) came out of retirement 30 years later to make this surprisingly satisfying sequel to his cult classic. Like its predecessor, The Endless Summer II: The Journey Continues chronicles the adventures of two young California surfers -- short-board champ Pat O’Connell and long-boarder Robert "Wingnut" Weaver -- as they globe-hop from one incredible surf spot to another. Brown provides the same goofy, laid-back narration that made The Endless Summer so distinctive, and the sight gags and slapstick humor are just as juvenile. What’s impossible to recapture, of course, is the freshness and innocent charm of the low-tech 1966 original, but the new film makes up for that with awe-inspiring, state-of-the-art cinematography that puts the viewer inside the waves with the surfers. The guys travel to Costa Rica, France, South Africa, Fiji, Australia, and Indonesia, hooking up and hanging ten in each spectacular location with some of the world’s finest surfers, including Tom Curren, Gerry Lopez, Laird Hamilton, and Kelly Slater. They also revisit characters from The Endless Summer, such as Robert August, one of the travelers from the first film; Australian Nat Young; and South African maverick John Whitmore. One of the best sequences in The Endless Summer II comes when O’Connell and Wingnut make their way across the dunes to the beach on Cape St. Francis, where August and fellow traveler Mike Hynson discovered the "perfect" wave, only to find the once-deserted strip of coast now covered with condos and the legendary break undermined by shoreline development. But rather than dwell in nostalgia, the film just moves breezily along in search of the next jaw-dropping set of waves. The result is an upbeat, infectious celebration of surfing that will prove almost as thrilling to a new generation of surfers as the original was to their parents.

The movie was by far one of the greatest surf movies made. It is packed full surf excitement and great travel spots, not to mention some great humor too, in my opinion this movie is a 5 star.

Pat and Wingnuts adventure takes you to amazing surf sites around the world as they meet some of the world's best surfers. There is some amazing surfing footage as well as creative writing and guests to make this movie extremely entertaining. It is a classic that you can watch over and over.

Just like Pat and Wingnut with the original, I have seen this movie more than a hundred times. I won't say it is better than the original, but it's easily just as good. Bruce Brown is the man.

This movie has prompted me to start planning my own version of the Endless Summer. I saw Endless Summer and loved it!! Ten minutes later, I was watching part two, and already going over in my head what the cost would be. Bruce Brown is a genius, and sadly it is mostly unrecognized.

Right when i thought i didnt like surfing this pulled me back into the surfing world and made me more addicted to surfing then ever before. One word, (excellent)!!!!!!! Five Stars

I really didn't know which side of a surfboard was up until I met my surfer boyfriend who recommended this movie. Patrick O'Connell is often referred to as ''the happiest surfer alive,'' and his gleeful antics on and off the board hastened a yearning to pursue and live life to the fullest with such joyous, youthful abandon. Keep smiling Patrick!

This movie got me hooked on surfing. I really wasn't into it until I watched this movie. It really is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen if you just are relaxed and don\t really expect it. Bruce Brown has a great sense of humor. This is one of those movies that you can just watch over and over because it flows so well, and even if you are not the most avid surfer it is still funny to watch what Pat, and Wingnut get into. If you have never seen Fiji, you need to watch this movie because it makes it look like paradise. This movie is a must to watch for anyone who has ever surfed, it will either bring back the memories, or make you want to wax up0
