|Bud Browne's Surfing the 50's
"One day early in 1993 I realized I had all the pristine surf film on the shelf that no one had seen in more than thirty years, and that it would be of value as a historical record of an important time in the early years of surfing. I have assembled about 70 minutes of my best footage of the 1950s, with highlights from eight filsm, including The Big Surf and Cat on a Hot Foam Board. I asked experienced surfers Peter Cole and John Kelly to come over from Hawaii to do this narration."

Hey, who am I to argue?
Especially with a Cahiers du Cinema review by Ethan Coen laying down the following: "Longer, a new American surf movie (focusing on a certain Joel Tudor) is the vision of a masterful new eye. The poignancy of de Sica's The Bicycle Thief echoes in his scoring of the opening segment with Getz/Gilberto's 'Desafinado.' As you know, 'desafinado' translates from the Portugese to 'out of tune.' It is clear that this Joel Tudor is surfing 'out of tune' as he keeps prancing up and down his surfing board to maintain equilibrium. The use of Errol Gardner's 'Misty' further cements my thesis; it is clear that Joel is in a mournful state over the loss of a lover, as seen in the recondite but ultimately impenetrable transitions." Well, touché, D'Artagnon. I'd add my two cents by saying that you'd be hard pressed to find someone with a keener sense of surfing subtleties than j brother, particularly when it comes to his pal, Tudor. Longer captures Mr. T on discs, eggs, guns, and tanks at spots around the globe. The footage, gathered over several years, offers a unique look at joel's growth as a surfer and his choice of equipment and the wave quality have not been seen like this before. All the usual suspects will enjoy this true-to-form follow-up of a drift.
- Not since the days of Phil and David or Gerry and Wayne, have you seen better longboarding, longer noserides or more stylish tuberiding. According to Leonard Liebowitz of NYU's New School of Film , "Jack McCoy's Green Iguana-era productions were so tight you could bounce quarters off them; Taylor Steele played to the cheap seats, resulting in Himalayan gross returns; Andrew Kidman's Litmus articulated the scruffy sophisto of the surfing hobo; Thomas Campbell's The Seedling came smoking out of the gate with the most distinctive visual thumbprint of the decade. Yet it was j brother's 1995 ultra-short longboard flick, a drift, that quietly influenced the face of surf cinema-perhaps more than any other single title of the 1990s."

SURFING FOR LIFE is an entertaining and inspirational 68-minute film portrait of ten older surfers still riding waves in their 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. Directed by award-winning filmmaker David L. Brown, this remarkable documentary journey portrays the "sport of kings" as a uniquely powerful metaphor for passionate involvement and life’s possibilities as we all grow older. This is a film for all audiences that details the fascinating lives of heroic role models who are "following their bliss" and staying active and engaged into their seventh, eighth and ninth decades.
Narrated by actor Beau Bridges, SURFING FOR LIFE blends compelling life stories told through interviews, contemporary day-in-the-life footage, and a wealth of rare archival material including images from several of the world's finest early surf filmmakers and photographers. Through these insightful profiles and a healthy dose of humor, this dynamic film challenges the negative images of aging presented in America’s youth-obsessed culture.
SURFING FOR LIFE not only challenges ageism, it also weaves a tapestry of unforgettable stories that embody many universal aspects of the human experience. The surfers’ tales reveal, among many lessons, courage in the face of adversity, the power of the human spirit and a celebration of values and relationships that contribute to rich, meaningful, well-spent lives.
With life-embracing warmth and humor, the older surfers in SURFING FOR LIFE overturn the common perception of surfing as an activity only for young people and, in the process, make an important and eloquent statement about the human potential of later life. Audiences and critics alike confirm that this is one of the most memorable and uplifting films on growing older ever produced.
