RIP Bruce Brown, Thanks.

by The Editors on December 11, 2017

Bruce Brown (left with his son Dana), the smooth voiced, kind, funny documentary filmmaker whose classic films The Endless Summer and On Any Sunday introduced the entire world to action sports died Sunday December 10, 2017 at home on his ranch north of Santa Barbara, California, according to a story in the Los Angeles Times. He was 80 years old.

The message on the Bruce Brown Films website read:

Today our friend, partner, mentor, filmmaker, and father peacefully passed away in Santa Barbara, California. . . With Bruce Bruce and his inspiring movies an era comes to an end! His legacy lives on with all of us that continue to carry his torch! Thank you Bruce for all you did for this and future generations. Rest In Peace.

His infectious way of communicating cool inspired generations to follow their bliss and live unconventional lives (ours included). He infected the world with a stoke that will never die. For that we thank him. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
