Echo Beach is both a place and a feeling. An era in the 80’s where flashy wetsuits, colorful surfboards, and mammoth sized logos became the standard. Located in Orange County, CA between 52nd and 56th street Newport Beach, Echo Beach is a sliver of land that helped innovate the iconic times of the 80’s. This film takes you back to the Newport Beach crew of surfers, who dominated the magazines. All at once, surfing good and more importantly, looking good on a one foot wave in your own backyard in the height of summer became almost more important than going huge in Hawaii in the winter. No single place defined this era quite like ‘Echo Beach’, where Surfing magazines and photographers all came to capture both the vibe in the water and on the beach that helped shaped one of the most iconic periods of surfing.
