#SurfWeek#cheese number 23 and counting down...CRYSTAL VOYAGER is a vintage Aussie surf flick with ECHOS being the highlight at the end.
The closing sequence,George Greenough's short film Echoes, is generally considered to be the highlight of the film. Filmed with a camera in a waterproof housing strapped to Greenough’s back, the sequence is composed entirely of slow-motion footage shot inside the curl of waves, edited to the 23-minute song "Echoes" by Pink Floyd. The group reportedly allowed Elfick and Greenough to use the music in their film in exchange for the use of Greenough's footage as a visual background when they performed "Echoes" in concert.
Full movie on youtube for those interested...it includes some pretty good tunes by G. Wayne Thomas & The Crystal Voyager Band
There is talk about the waves being too crowded and that was back in 1973...I can't imagine what it's like now
