LA Times - Endless summer continues for Robert August in Costa Rica
TAMARINDO, Costa Rica — Summer is over for us mere mortals, but for Robert August, well, it never ends.
Part of that may have to do with the fact that he is a full-time resident of Tamarindo, Costa Rica, where the air temperature is typically in the 80s and the water temperature in the 70s year-round.
But it’s more than the temperature. It’s a mindset, a vibe. August, one of the stars of the iconic movie, “The Endless Summer,” took off on a plane with filmmaker Bruce Brown and fellow surfer Mike Hynson soon after graduating from Huntington Beach High in 1963 to travel the world and surf, capturing it on film.
