Norman Landa's European Summer
Summer's always flat in Europe, you say?
A Spaniard called Norman? Ridiculous, we know, but true. His surname, appropriately enough, is Landa, for you'll rarely see him fall, not even when the lip's landing right on top of him (head to 1:53 for a miraculous escape act). The production values are budget alright, but ain't nothing budget about the surfing, filmed during the wave-rich summer enjoyed by those who inhabit the Basque right-angle where Spain and France meet.
