| Inferior clone of "Endless Summer" on skis
I had been searching for the movie for almost 30 years after stumbling across a review of it in Leonard Maltin's movie guide as a child, but I couldn't find it anywhere. For that matter, I could hardly find any mention of it anywhere else during that time. But I finally got to see it today. Maybe my expectations had built too high during all those decades, but I was kind of disappointed by what I watched. This "Endless Summer" on skis does have some of the ingredients from the original film, such as some good music, witty narration, and some spectacular footage of the participants doing their sport. However, the movie is simply missing much of the magic that "Endless Summer" managed to generate. Maybe it's because the ski footage becomes interchangeable after a while, maybe it's because there are a number of slow stretches, maybe it's because the footage between the ski shots is obviously staged and contrived, or maybe it's because the narration is too excessive and too jokey at times. Whatever the reason(s) might be, the end results make it clear why the movie has really faded into obscurity. But if you all the same want to track it down, as of this date it's posted on YouTube.
