Inner (Lost) Limits of Pure Fun

George Greenough is easily one of the most prolific and innovative people to grace modern surf culture of the last 50 years. From fin design to board design and all the strange surf craft in between, George was someone who wasn’t only ahead of his time, he transcended it.

Along with his numerous gifts to surfing were two films, “The Innermost Limits of Pure Fun” and “Crystal Voyager”. Recently Greenough has uncovered unreleased footage and photos from the late 60s and early 70s era of surfing that will be presented for the first time by Devon Howard.

The film entitled the “Inner (Lost) Limits of Pure Fun” and a slide show will be presented at the Patagonia, Santa Monica location on Tuesday August 12 and at the Patagonia, Bowery (NYC) location on Thursday August 14. For more information visit Patagonia.

Here’s a clip from Greenough’s breakthrough film “Crystal Voyager” from 1973.
