Classic surfing documentary about the freedom and sense of adventure that surfing symbolizes. Director Brown follows two young surfers around the world in search of the perfect wave. (They finally find it at a then-unknown break off Cape Saint Francis in South America.) Besides the excellent surfing photography, Big Kahuna Brown provides the amusing tongue-in-cheek narrative. Considered by many to be the best surf movie ever. 90m/C VHS, DVD, UMD . Mike Hynson, Robert August; D: Bruce Brown; W: Bruce Brown; Nar: Bruce Brown. Natl. Film Reg. '02.
