This year the Bud Browne Film Archives returns to the Honolulu Surf Film Festival, bringing with it Browne’s 16mm epic classic, Going Surfin’. This film is unavailable on downloads or DVDs. The only opportunity to view it is when it is shown publicly by the Bud Browne Film Archives and this year Anna Trent Moore pulls it from the vault to celebrate the Honolulu Surf Film Festival’s tenth anniversary!

Bud Browne’s last film is a visual feast featuring Gerry Lopez at his finest, surfing epic Pipeline filmed for the first time inside the tube. On hand at this closing-night event will be guests of honor Reno Abellira, Clyde Aikau, Ben Aipa, Joey Cabell, Jeannie Chesser, Peter Cole, Kimo Hollinger, Ira Opper, Randy Rarick, and Jock Sutherland. When these guys are on a stage reminiscing together, you don’t want them to ever stop. An epic evening not to be missed!
