You may be too young to remember the release of the original film “Endless Summer” back in 1966, but most surfers have since watched reruns of this iconic movie – and so too have smart California hotels owners Joie de Vivre.
Joie de Vivre is a chain of boutique hotels which are offering a fun package which will certainly live up to their name, which incidentally translates as “Joy of Living”. Appropriately the phrase is often used to express having fun and enjoying life.
The Endless Summer Ultimate Surf Package which they have cooked up offers the chance to enjoy surfing with the legend of the film, avid surfer Robert August. Once you’re done with riding the waves, share a table with August and his son Sam, who is also a keen surfer, and share surfer-talk over drinks and appetizers on the beach.
Guests booking this ultimate surf package are guaranteed a room with a beachfront view at the Pacific Edge Hotel on Southern California’s Laguna Beach, and there’s more. Joie de Vivre will also throw in a copy of Bruce Brown’s “Ultimate Summer” DVD collection of eight classic surf films and a six-pack of Endless Summer lager by Karl Strauss. For an additional fee you can even get a souvenir surfboard from August’s custom-made collection.
If you fancy giving someone the ultimate surfing gift, this package is sure to get you brownie points. Otherwise, sit back and watch a re-run of this docu-drama which shows a youthful Robert August and Mike Hynson chasing the perfect wave from West Africa to Tahiti via Australia.
