Bruce Brown 1937 – 2017

I’m sorry I have some sad news to share. Documentary and early surf movie filmmaker Bruce Brown passed away last night nine days after his 80th birthday. Seal Beach folk will probably know him best for The Endless Summer, the 1966 surf documentary that followed Mike Hynson and Robert August as they surfed around the world, but he continued to direct and produce films well into the 21st century.

There’s a good O.C. Register write-up on Brown here, and you can check out his IMDB credits here.
