Greg Noll 1956 – added narration

leave a comment

Classic 1956 Australian footage shot by Greg Noll, taken from his Search For Surf movie, originally produced in 1957

Have just bought the re-edition of Greg Noll’s incredible phonecall-from-another-planet garage production Search For Surf (1957-1961) only to realise where this strange clip, fished from a muddy bit-torrent puddle, actually originated. The re-edition features a pithy narration by Bruce Brown and Greg Noll, overlaid onto scenes culled from over 10 hours of classic Noll footage that made up the constantly re-worked crowd pleaser Search For The Surf screened in flea-pit cinemas and surf clubs in Australia around the late 50s and early 60s.
