If you like Bruce then this is for you.

"This is a very nostalgic look back at when Bruce Brown started making moviesin the 50's until he finished with Endless Summer 2. There are several great cameos by Dave Velzy, Greg Noll, and Robert August(just to name a few) who tell the viewer about their experiences with Brown and the movies they made together. It unfortunatley is only 70 minutes long. It has great out takes from ES and ES 2 and a short blooper series that is classic. I only gave it 3 stars because it didn't have enough surfing and it wasn't long enough."
It Got Better

"I had seen "The Endless Summer" (TES) and was fully expecting "The Endless Summer Revisited" (TESR) not to live up to it, if only for the fact that it was not a follow up to the original TES or "The Endless Summer II" (TES2). This was more of a documentary of how they made TES, TES2 and some other surfing during that timeframe. When it started, I was fully prepared for 2 stars. However, many of the interviews led me to 3 stars. Some of the new surfing footage led me to 4 stars. Then, with footage from TES2 (which is not available on DVD yet), I had to go with 5 stars. It is not the same as TES, so if you expect that, it will be disappointed. But, if you want to know more of the surfer life, then TESR is worth it. I especially liked them pointing out that it is NOT like "Beach Blanket Bingo" or other silly movies where they just throw sex into the mix. Sure, hormones are prevalent, especially when young, but that goes out the window when riding waves. I was glad that they pointed that out and that they followed it in the films."
Incomplete (where is Hynson?) and not much new material

"Quick review: Dana Brown opens this documentary by describing it as (paraphrased) "another chance to rip off the public," and he's somewhat right. "The Endless Summer Revisited" is mostly a series of interviews of the original filmmakers, promoters, and one of the stars of "The Endless Summer" and it doesn't reveal a whole lot that wasn't covered during the Surfer's Journal series on surf movies. I can't recommend buying this, but it might be worth a rental if you can find a copy. More details: "The Endless Summer Revisited" tells the story of the filming and distribution of the original "Endless Summer" as well as a little bit about its sequel. It runs chronologically, startingwith some early footage of Bruce Brown as a surfer and then progressing forward. Interviews shot on video are mostly of Bruce Brown, Dana Brown, and Robert August, with appearances by Greg Noll, Steve Pezman, Dale Velzy, Hobie Alter, Nat Young, Wingnut, Pat O'Connell, and some other old guys whose names I don't recall.I got a few chuckles from Noll taking digs at Brown whenever he could get a chance, and there was some interesting grainy footage here and there from the original film that I hadn't seen before. They show a little bit of from-shore shots of the filming of the water camera footage, and Brown tells the real story of how Cape St. Francis was discovered by Mike Hynson. Hynson, by the way, is not interviewed at all for this film. The lack of his perspective is a major gap. The film winds up with details that I hadn't heard before of how they found a distributor for "The Endless Summer," including taking the film to Kansas during a snowstorm to prove that it could be shown to a wider audience. By the time they get to the sequel, the makers of "Endless Summer Revisited" have run out of gas, and don't have much to say other than "it's the same thing only better." There's not much additional footage at all from that film, which is disappointing since they must have a lot of it in the can.Summary: Don't buy it, rent it if you're interested in surf media history."
