Two of Bruce's cameras, the bottom one is the one in the photo of Bruce above, and was the main camera Bruce used during the filming of The Endless Summer.
A letter written by Dale Velzy to Bruce Brown. Velzy bought Bruce a movie camera and sent him to the North Shore to film. The resulting movie was Slippery When Wet. The transcription can be read as follows:
Oct. 31, 1958

Dear Bruce,

            How’s the movie coming along? Bet the boys are at each others throats by now, huh.

            Do me a favor and go to Waikiki to the Outrigger and see if there are a pair of shorts by M. Knee (sp. MNii) for me. If you can’t locate them for me at the Outrigger, get in touch with M. Knee and have him send them to me here, O.K.??

            Did you guys get any surf at Ala Moana Monday – we had it 8ft. here.

            Did you pick up the tripod at the Matson Docks?

            Has Byron got his board yet? Remember I wrote it would be at the Princess Kaiolani with my father-in-law? It’s under the name of “Ace Beal.”

            What’s happening over there, haven’t heard from you in a week – how ‘bout writing!!

            Oh & one last thing, is Conrad happy with his board?

            Nuff for now————— Dale

P.S. I have sent Cooper’s (?) C. check

Digital Watermarking of our images – Public Notice

As part of our commitment to protecting our image donors, the Surfing Heritage Foundation has begun using digital watermarking on ALL of our images, including those images seen on our website. This watermark is not visible to the eye, but is easily seen by many computer programs such at Photoshop and other image editing programs. In addition, we have also purchased a “watermark spider” that crawls the Internet specifically looking for any images that contain our SHF watermark. The Surfing Heritage Foundation is prepared to take the appropriate action should we find any illegal or unlicensed usage of images from our files.
