The section where Mike and Robert got to a remote coastal village in Ghana has become one of the movie's most enduring scenes - Although it was filmed over 50 years ago it captures the pure essence of surfing adventure in a way that has rarely been repeated.

I have awesome memories of Robert August and Billy Fury. We lived next door to Robert in Seal Beach, 1957. He used to put me on his shoulder and tanden. I am sure he does not remember me, I was only nine. We would go grunion hurting with him. Nicest guys. Treated this little girl like a little surfer girl. I still love the song. He and Bill were so nice to the kids on the beach. Who knew that he would do "Endless Summer"!om
