FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: ‘THE ENDLESS SUMMER’ 50TH ANNIVERSARY SCREENING IN MALIBU
Malibu, California. May 27, 2014 – Celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the seminal surfing documentary ‘THE ENDLESS SUMMER,’ Malibu Surfing Association (MSA) and Bruce Brown Films are proud to present a special ‘TES’ movie screening and art show at Malibu Market & Design (25001 PCH) this Saturday, May 31st. Proceeds from the evening event will benefit: the Malibu High School Surf Team, the California Wildlife Center, and MSA. Tickets are $20, $10 for students with ID.
“An idea of ‘THE ENDLESS SUMMER’ first came from Malibu — a dream that every surfer could find a wave as good as it,” said John Hinkle, MSA President. “It’s our special privilege to work with Bruce Brown Films and our event partners to bring a 50th anniversary screening of ‘THE ENDLESS SUMMER’ home to Malibu,” said Hinkle.
Rising surfer Frankie Seely — current WSA and NSSA champion, member of the Malibu High School Surf Team, and MSA member — agrees that ‘TES’ is required viewing, “In its adventure of exploring new territory, meeting other surfers, connecting to new culture and sharing the stoke of surfing, ‘THE ENDLESS SUMMER’ defined a standard that inspires me to travel in search of “the perfect wave.””
Legendary Malibu surfer Mr. Lance Carson, who first started surfing at First Point, Malibu aged 6, described his feature in the movie as, “No leash. No rubber. It wasn’t a ham sandwich, it was peanut butter and jelly!” Join us this Saturday and see exactly what he means.
Formed in 1961, the Malibu Surfing Association (MSA) is one of California’s first surfing clubs. MSA is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to the fellowship of surfing and to the stewardship of its local break, world-famous Surfrider Beach.
