Endless Summer

Made to commemorate the 1960's surf documentary The Endless Summer,  The sky includes all of the surfers names mentioned in the movie.  The yellow sun includes all of the surf lingo in the movie, and the orange sand includes the locations of each surf spot.  The original is 18"x24" and made from hand-cut paper with 26 hours of cutting and design to complete.

For a while every Wednesday my roommate Emily and I would drive from Sacramento to Santa Cruz to go surf at Cowell’s beach.  We weren’t that great but as a 19-year old’s with no obligations, the ocean called to us.   Back then we would watch The Endless Summer movie and just be amazed at the skill and thrill of these athletes riding the waves.  I love this movie and I thought I would honor it in my own way. 

The pink sky credits every surfer in the movie.  As their names were not included in the credits.  I watched the movie and wrote down each surfer’s name mentioned and where they were from.  I even included Terence Bullen.  Terence was a crazy cool guy.  He caught animals for zoo’s, milked cobras and took 2 weeks and 2k miles out of his way to get Mike Hynson and Robert August to their favorite surf spot in South Africa.  Terence was afraid of the ocean and never stepped foot in it. Like I said, a crazy guy. The other surfers mentioned paddled out to mammoth waves without the help of a jet ski, like they do now.  Real trail blazers.  This bravery and craziness had to be honored with their names for credit.

The yellow sun is highlighted by all the surf slang used in the movie.  It’s so fun to hear the lingo my favorite is an ‘El Rollo’. This movie was made in the 60’s so listening to the slang back then was something I wanted to commemorate.

Last but not least the orange sand. Through this travel across the globe, chasing an endless summer, the guys traveled from Hawaii, to Dakar, Senegal; Lagos, Nigeria; Accra, Ghana; Capetown, South Africa; Durban, South Africa; Table Mountain, South Africa; Cape St. Francis, South Africa; Perth, Australia; Denmark, Western Australia;  Melbourne, Australia; Sydney, Australia; Ahipara, New Zealand; Raglean, New Zealand; Papeete, Tahiti, back to  Waimea Bay, Hawaii.  I’ve included maps of all these locations across the world in the glowing orange sand. Completing this commemoration.  What a ride it was to watch and  memories I’ll treasure forever.
