FilmWorks Entertainment will be bringing filmmaker Peter Sterling’s off-beat surf film, European Surf Journal, to DVD on Dec. 10.
For surfers it is about the ride; the waves and that usually means the Pacific Ocean, not Europe. But Sterling has found some pretty interesting — even exotic — locales in 11 different countries where world-renown pros have assembled with local surfers for some spectacular rides.
Filmed over a two-year period, we travel from the shores of Morocco (technically North Africa) to the frozen beauty of Iceland, with stops in such unlikely places as Switzerland, Sweden and Denmark. But the biggest surprise are the monsters that Sterling and his surfers were greeted with on the Portuguese island of Madeira.
Bonus features include bonus footage not used in the final film and a photo gallery.
