In this fascinating portrayal of the then-emergent new age hippie lifestyle, a handful of barefoot and homeless surfers embrace a back-to-the land mindset and live for nothing but surfing and communalism. Morning of the Earth captures them in their element, living in spiritual harmony with nature, making their own boards (and homes) as they travel in search of the perfect wave across Australia, Bali, and Hawaii.
