Ever catch a wave in some epic Vietnam surf during a gunfight? Neither have we, but the moment was immortalized in the film Apocalypse now, the 1979 cult classic that was inspired by a fictional novel, and shaped by a towering moment in our American history. Drawing influence from surfboards, olive drab, death cards, and the eternal line spoken by Lt. Col Kilgore, "Apocalypse Surf" packs history with style.
