“Peter Sterling – photographer and filmmaker – traveled intensively for two years throughout Europe. From the barren cold North to the hot desert of Morocco. Countries like Iceland, Scotland and Ireland through the middle of Europe, even surfing on rivers in Germany and Switzerland. This film includes 11 destinations. This is not your average surf film. It does not only show you surf pros but also the guy down the block. It shows serious big waves in Spain and Madeira. An open film made from the heart that will give you joy history and poeple that you meet along the way. This film also contains some older footage of young surfers that still rule the European waves today. Hopefully you are inspired by this historical journey through space and time.” Ray Max (surf photographer, writer and filmmaker)
