Do you know on which beach the classic Endless Summer poster image was taken?
One Summer, Forever
By Lili Anolik
The Endless Summer poster is 50 years old, and it hasn’t aged a minute. Kitchen-table project turned pop-culture phenomenon, the Day-Glo movie promo created by John Van Hamersveld for his friend Bruce Brown’s 1964 documentary is still selling the dream—on T-shirts, TV shows, beer bottles, and dorm walls. Lili Anolik looks back at the moment an iconic image was born, the social upheaval it presaged, and the surfer-dude-slash-designer whose life it changed.
