John John the Phenomenon! Born and raised in the surf in Hawaii, John-John Florence is easy one of the most exciting surfers around at present.
Check out this incredible footage of him in his latest surf video called ‘SPACE’.
Learn 2 Surf was asked by Hoofkantoor Produksies to teach 3 actors how to surf for a South African/Afrikaans (surfing/drama) movie called Die Pro.
The actors, Edwin van der Walt, Reine Swart and Bennie Fourie needed to learn to surf from scratch (on longboards), then progress in their skills in order to ride shortboards, and then to get good enough on shortboards so they could surf, in the movie, in Jeffreys Bay, in 4 weeks!
Hailed as the greatest surf movie ever made, ‘The Endless Summer’ has been entertaining audiences since it’s release in 1966 and continues to win over new fans, even in today’s modern film making era.
The concept: “On any day of the year it is summer somewhere in the world…” Director, Bruce Brown, took 2 surfers Robert August and Mike Hynson following the summer season around the world in search of the perfect wave.
It is all too often that sharks are portrayed as mindless killing machines in movies and the media. But unfortunately fear sells newspapers and movie tickets.
At LEARN 2 SURF, we love sharks! Sharks are an essential part of our ecosystem and (fortunately) they are our friends.
