Required Viewing: Morning of the Earth
The first in our new series of essential surf movies is Morning of the Earth, released in 1972. This film captures the spirit of a group of nomadic Australian surfers in perpetual motion across Australia, Bali and Hawaii. As they travel, the surfers build their own boards and their own shelter in pursuit of the perfect wave.
The film's soundtrack became a multiplatinum bestseller and the background music for a generation.
