The Might Of Mavericks
Half Moon Bay and Wagner is a combination not to be trifled with, on the evidence of this superb short film
This short film from Paul Topp is spellbinding throughout. The beatings are brutal and some of the surfing is extraordinary; of particular note is Tom Lowe's recovery about a minute and a half in, after looking a certainty to go over the handlebars. Classical music and surfing, by the way, should go together more often; the soundtrack here is provided by Richard Wagner, whose scope and vision make a perfect match for the majesty and might of Half Moon Bay.
