About the Film:
Endless Winter: A Very British Surf Movie
Directed by Matt Crocker + James Dean. UK, 2012, 94 mins.
With its crap weather, the UK is home to one of the most unusual and colorful surf scenes on the planet. In this delightful romp in search of British surfing’s eccentric history, surfers Mark Harris and Mitch Corbett are on a mission; to discover how Californian cool arrived on Britain’s bracing beaches, and grew from splashy summer fun, to a serious obsession with waves. The directors take us to Britain’s iconic surf spots along 5,000 miles of rugged coastline and unravel British surfing’s evolution against a backdrop of vibrant youth culture, civil unrest and unprecedented social change. This film is a must-see for surf fanatics and anglophiles alike. Original soundtrack by Hotel Flamingo with music by Ben Howard, CREAM, Fairport Convention, Manfred Mann, Rory Gallagher and more.
Winner: Best British Surf Film: London Surf Film Festival.
Official Selection: San Diego Surf Film Festival; Waimea Ocean Film Festival; Surfworld International Surf Film Festival; Cologne Surf Film Festival.
