GrowABrain for ‘Charlie Does’

Posted on June 30, 2012 

GrowABrain has teamed up with Charlie Does, a Filipino surf shop, to design a range of Tees to celebrate their story:

In 1979 Francis Ford Coppola released the epic film Apocolypse Now. If you don’t know it, it would be a good idea to watch it. It is amazing. The movie was located in and around a small and sleepy town called Baler which sits right on the pacific and is surrounded by the ever visible Siera Madre – which literally means Mountain Mother, though more like should be understood as: ‘That is one Mother of a Mountain’.

Most of the famous scenes of the movie were shot in Baler, or a place a little way out of the town called Charlie’s Point.

Balerino surfers owe a great gratitude to the movie, not least because when production ended the team left all the surfboards for the locals.

The most famous line of the movie goes like this:

Some GI: ‘Its pretty hairy in there. I mean it’s Charlie’s point!’


Well, Charlie Does!
