Surf Crazy (1959)

Poster Description

This exciting poster for Bruce Brown’s second film features a stunning shot of now legendary big wave surf pioneers Greg Noll, Peter Cole and Byron Keough (name misspelled on poster) tackling the just recently ridden Waimea Bay. The poster’s melodramatic description as “the largest wave to hit Hawaii in 5 years” is inaccurate. At the time though, it seemed appropriate ad copy to draw in the young and appreciative surfers to see the movie. A favorite amongst dedicated surf memorabilia collectors.

Movie Description

A road movie with surfers going to Mexico looking for new surf locations. Included Rincon and Cottons Point in California, and Waimea Bay and Sunset Beach in Hawaii. Has Joey Cabell and Donald Takayama riding Velzyland.
