The Cosmic Children 1971 marked the feature debut of Hal Jepson, who went on to be one of Americas leading surf movie producers. The Cosmic Children features Hakman, Nuuhiwa, Rolf Aurness and Barry Kanaiaupuni among others. This clip shows the boys struggling to come to grips with the equipment of the day. It seems from this clip that, in those days, staying upright was as much of a challenge as boosting seems to be today maybe even more so.
Love the little shot of Barry K blazing up before he paddles out maybe that was why it was so hard to stay on your feet everyone was high? Not The Surf Nomad though. Our bodies are temples.
