It was with great sadness that I awoke today to the news that iconic film director and creator of the The Endless Summer had passed away at the age of 80. Bruce was one of a kind. I was lucky enough to collaborate with Bruce over the last couple years on Endless Summer Rum. From shooting clays off his porch at Hollister to discussing the moment he, Robert August and Michael Hynson discovered Cape St. Francis, it was always an entertaining time. To call him a legend would be an understatement. Bruce introduced a whole world to the beautiful sport of surfing. He'll be missed, but never forgotten.
