From West Africa via Tahiti, Australia, New Zealand to Hawaii: Two Californian surfers in search of the perfect wave. And they find it – the absolute climax of the film – at St. Francis Bay in South Africa. An endless summer full of dangerous surf manoeuvres and breath-taking tube-riding. This film is the surf classic – and a 1960s trip to a way of life that is simply simple.
