My father was one of those kids watching Bruce Brown's surf films at PB Junior High during the late 50's early 60's. $ .25 entry fee, Bruce would be set up at a card table with a microphone and narrate the silent surf films.
My dad said that the next morning, everyone who owned or could get their hands on a surf board would be out in the water catching waves.
A great talent that has clearly been passed onto his son.
My Families thoughts and prayers to all of Bruce Brown's Family and Friends.
