Made In Europe is a three-part series exploring the unique lives of surfers who call the Old World home. In the first installment, Southern California-based filmmaker Matt Payne visits Hossegor, France, where he spends time with Tom Curren.
For surfers, Europe has always been a destination that offers promise of something more than simply wave riding. The remnants of eras long past often stand right at the water’s edge, defying the ocean’s penchant for constant, radical change. Unsurprisingly, such an environment inspires Europe’s sons, daughters, and lifelong visitors to foster unique approaches to the act and art of surfing.
