The reason that this movie wasn't so good is because of the soundtrack which didn't fit with the movie. The background music is always slow instrumental jazz, I don't hate jazz but it just didn't fit with the cool moves of the surfers (specially with the moves in slow-motion). Also, the color quality of the film is kind of annoying at times, and there isn't to much action as Surf Crazy.
I know that this is the first Bruce Brown film, in the intro he explain that he didn't had to much budget to make this movie better. But at least, the film was successfuly enought to make another movie with better soundtrack, editing and action (Surf Crazy).
Warning: Most of theses documentaries are silent, so you won't hear the character's voices but you will hear Bruce Brown narrating. Bruce Brown is not SOO good in narration but he is not the worst.
P.S: I also know that Bruce Brown's masterpiece is Endless Summer (1967), but I only want to know how cool and rocking the 50's were.
