I took this photo over five years ago while on a trip to the Kohala Coast of the Big Island.

I think it epitomizes not only the content of the movie but also the title of the movie.

Nothing to do with sport, but it reminds me of the chilling 1957 Nevil Shute novel & 1959 film "On the Beach". With new disaster scenarios looming, its time is coming round again. It ends with the last human survivors committing suicide.

Have a happy day! Keep smiling! Always look on the bright side of life (but not in the context of Monty Python).

I hope the right answer is much more cheerful. It's a lovely restful picture, Selvin.

Alan,

I remember the trailers and ads for the Nevil Shute movie. I was growing up in Jamaica at the time and it got quite a bit of play being of british vintage.

If it were not for the playful mood of the surfers I would agree, this could have been for "On the Beach."

Aloha and have a pint on me.

Bynx,

Not quite what I was looking for but that's a possible answer. Here's a tip.

Think back to the mid-1960s a couple of kids with surfboards and nothing better to do than travel around the world.
