SURF NIGHT 1. AUGUST. Surfing in Biarritz, France, in the 1980s was wild: Surfing was punk, surfers were outlaws. They had a thirst for pure thrill that could lead to the top of the world – or directly into prison. This is the unknown story of the six best European surfers of the 80’s. The story of their greatness, decadence and their fall. It’s also a story about how surfing changed from being all about wild fun, drugs and rock’n’roll to the healthy outdoor activity it is nowadays. The setting in beautiful Biarritz, the amazing archive footage and the crazy characters (that to this day still rule the local scene) make ‘Biarritz Surf Gang’ the most breathtaking surf movie of the year – and one of the outstanding documents of the genre.
