Growing up in a surfing family in Hawaii, The Endless Summer, was a rite of passage. As a young boy, not only did that surf film give me a love of the ocean and adventure, the image of the cover was burned into my memory. (Even Vanity Fair applauds the world renown portrait.) The iconic shot contains a dramatic composition of the setting sun with the movie's surfers, Mike Hynson and Robert August, and the film maker, Bruce Brown, in the foreground. That image was a source of inspiration for my surfing lifestyle, but more recently, an inspiration for my photography.
