So cool! Hard to believe that is 80 years old.

And... it was 35 years prior to the Greenough short 'Rubber Duck Riders', which in turn was 46 years prior to now.

The point being Rubber Duck Riders was 10 years closer to that Movietone clip than it is to now...amazing.

Of all the ways we'd be cultural strangers with our ancestors from 80 years ago, fascinating to think we'd have this particular deep, direct connection.

I think that every time I see a surf photo from old California or Hawaii. Surfers are surfers are surfers are surfers...

A rare breed indeed PG. Spot on though, It's not a far reach to think that the buzz these folks had then is the same that lights us up now. Great to see this footage.
