We asked coastal residents on Facebook to name the best ever surfer movie and submit their favorite surfing photos. “The Endless Summer” got by far the most votes, followed by “Point Break.” Here are just a few of the comments.
“The Endless Summer” — the first surf movie released in regular theaters; it set the bar high and has never been surpassed!
– Rick Benson
There is only one! “The Endless Summer.’”
– Phil Newton
“The Endless Summer” … especially the part where they discover Cape St. Francis.
– Denny Norris
“Broken Waves” — It is the surfing documentary based on Galveston surfers. (My family is in that movie, so of course I think it is the best).
– Casey Miller
“Beach Blanket Bingo,” with Eric Von Zipper — clap, clap, snap snap!
– Rosalind Richard
“Step Into Liquid.”
– Kris Kelso
“Gidget: The Little Girl with Big Ideas.” Pretty cool for 1957!
– Kitty Allen
Can’t believe I’m saying this … “Blue Crush!”
– Holly Thorson
Dude, “Surf’s Up.” The greatest penguin surfing movie ever.
– Christopher Smith Gonzalez
