On restoring the landmark film, Scott Mansfield, CEO and Managing Partner of monterey media said "We are so very excited to be bringing The Endless Summer to the generations of fans who have never seen this beautiful, lyrical film like it is now. We have rejuvenated and Digitally Re-mastered the film with 5.1 surround sound (working with Warner Digital) and it hasn't looked this gorgeous, well, ever since its original theatrical release so many years ago. Balancing the color and painstakingly removing over 80% of the film dirt was truly a labor of love."
