Well, I'll be 40 in August. But, no, that era was before I was old enough to rent any video at all. Found this vid on the internet not long ago. As said, this flick is cheesy and trashy, but still kinda cool IMO...

The Sweet Ride is a 1968





Not really a surf film but there is some Dora & I think David Nuuhiwa at the end?

Wes, never heard of the guy, but wow what a surfer. The style around the 3:20 mark is amazing. Love the board too, my son surfs a similar, 7' single fin.

He got the World Championship in 70 and then pulled out of the public/pro surf scene. Such a bummer he didn't continue on because he ripped with style and we needed more rippers from the US.
Rolf Aurness - Pipeline, 1969 - Photo: LeRoy Grannis"In May of 1970, a tall, lean 18-year-old California goofyfoot named Rolf Aurness became the World Surfing Champion by overwhelming a stellar group of finalists - including Midget Farrelly, Peter Drouyn, Reno Abellira, Keone Downing, and Nat Young...But after winning his World Title, Aurness seemed to fade from the scene even faster than he'd arrived, although with less media coverage....When the final World Contest was held in San Diego in 1972, Rolf was not there to defend his title, but neither were former champs Farrelly, Pomar, Young and Hemmings, so it seemed almost natural - as if it was mostly a comment on the state of competitive surfing...In fact, Rolf Aurness's abrupt fade from surfing wasn't all that abrupt, just as his rise wasn't as sudden and surprising as it seemed. In a pattern almost mythological, the young champion emerged from a long and worthy tutelage to triumph in the public arena, and on a different stage in a parallel quest, on giant waves too...The truth of Rolf's rise and fall is more accurately portrayed as an orbit or an arc - one that had deep roots in an invisible burst above the horizon for a brief and spectacular time, then set once again in the West. But just as the sun doesn't die at the end of each day, neither did Rolf really disappear. He's just been going through his changes, journeying on the dark side, heading for the next new dawning.... I ask him to sum up his daily philosophy of living. "I'm glad to be here living my life," he tells me. "Regarding the astral worlds, I don't think about it too much - we'll be there soon enough." - Drew Kampion in Surfer's Journal, 2001#rolfaurness #drewkampion #leroygrannis #surfersjournal #pipeline @surfersjournal @avecave

Lou, I read about him after watching that video. He beat Midge Farrelly in the finals that year, Midge was the reigning world champion. Midge is well known down here.

I also read that the very first world surf champs were in 1964 on Manly beach, which is where I live and surf most days. Funny, never knew that.

Rolf certainly was a great surfer, pity he pulled out. Seems quite a few do though. Like anything, I think the organisational politics gets to everyone, and they never got into the sport in the first place to put up with that.
