We may be in the throes of a chilly winter, but this exciting new footage from top surfer George Greenough is sure to bring your mind to a warmer place and inspire you for all the ocean days to come.

Greenough, one of the top surfboard innovators and designers since the ’60’s, has recently released new footage from the making of his 1969 film The Innermost Limits of Pure Fun.

In the movie, Greenough becomes the first surfer to showcase a surfer’s point of view from within the wave by strapping a camera to his back during his adventures. The film broke new ground for surfers and videographers alike, and has brought this trailblazer unprecedented fame throughout his surfing career.

Now, more than 40 years later, enjoy this never-before-seen clip from Greenough’s original filming process and relive the glory.
