No prob. Glad ya'll dig it. Not sure how many surfers there are on here but I figured we can all appreciate the road trip aspect of it.

Brought back memories for me. 1963 bus (1976 & 1977), 4 friends, and west coast surf trips every weekend. Yeah, we lived inland a bit, but we were not from the Valley. Wink

Saw this video a year ago when some one posted it on Kombi Club Australia forum (we use the word Kombi like you guys use the word bus as a generic descriptor for VW transporters...). It is awesome!

Thanks again for posting it and making me watch it again. It's classic - the time, the bus, the music & the surf. I was 14 in 1975 and surfing road trips with older guys was definitely a highlight! Very Happy

Awesome vid. Although I love the life I have now, man I miss those days loading up in my 68 burgundy two-tone poptop chasing waves up the coast from FL.

I thought it was pretty funny how the cameraman was so stealthy getting shots of the girls in bikinis. Hardly any frontal shots, like he was afraid to get caught. And that Vega station wagon! That was a blast from the past.
