Buzzy Trent Week is coming to an end—but we’ve saved the best for last! Click forth for a Trent remix built from the ground up with A-grade Bud Browne film stock. Browne, the sainted Father of the Surf Movie, was the only guy to capture Trent in full charismatic glory, and oh just feast your eyes—Buzzy rubbing those cobblestone abs, skipping rope, holding court, raving about Point Surf Makaha, charging the biggest waves of 1958. You’ve heard my take on Trent, and read Buzzy’s interview. But to take full measure of the man you need to see him in motion, in color, with sound. You need Bud Browne.
Special thanks to Anna Trent-Moore, Buzzy’s daughter and executor of the Bud Browne estate, for making this video happen. Having Browne’s work featured on Encyclopedia of Surfing is a thrill and an honor. Thank you Anna!
