Eco-conscious footwear brand Freewaters has inked a deal with Bruce Brown Films celebrating the 50th anniversary of iconic surfer movie “The Endless Summer.” “Bruce, Robert [August] and Mike [Hynson] helped open the world’s eyes to the amazing waves, people and culture of South Africa almost 50 years ago,” says Freewaters Ambassador Robert Wingnut Weaver, who starred in the film’s sequel. “Now to be partnering “The Endless Summer” with Freewaters and its clean drinking water projects in Africa, it has really come full circle.”
