Bruce Brown footage from 1965

    In this footage of 1965 you will see Bruce Brown showing some of his skills as a surfer and film director. The show were this material aired was called "True Adventure", and it was some of the first tv shows to include segments about what we nowadays call "extreme" sports. This was just one year before Endless Summer was released and Bruce was getting slowly recognized for his work as a surf movie maker, a subject that very few had approached. You can notice how the host tries to explain every bit of surf culture to the audience - the fact is surf was something really new and almost unknown to the majority of american society, at the the time only few beach boys cared for a culture that would turn into a global activity some decades later.
