|Synopsis||Having learned the lifestyle from surf legend father, Blackie , Robert August went on to become one of the most recognizable figures in the surf world via his starring role in The Endless Summer. August rode his Hap Jacobs log to high acclaim throughout the 60s, and his loose-limbed, controlled style became a benchmark of California Cool. Now familiar to a whole new generation thanks to Endless Summer 2 (ESII), August runs a thriving surfboard company, splitting his time between Huntington Beach and Costa Rica.Wingnut is cast from the same mold. Always up for a good time, his infectious demeanor and legit-by-any-measure surfing skills are a good matchup with August, who happens to be his traveling partner. Learning to surf on a heavy longboard in the late-80s, no less Weaver became one of the coast's finest exemplars of classic noseriding. It came as no surprise that he was picked for a role in Endless Summer II, and with Pat O'Connel as a foil, he surfed his way into theatres around the globe. Join us as we track the careers of two of surfing's most well-rounded participants.|
