"No tourists go there because it's a bizarre place!"
Spain must be in more economic strife than I could’ve ever imagined given the wanderlust of its people.
In this episode, which must be the sixtieth or so short featuring Natxo Gonzalez, Kepa Acero and, or, Aritz Aranburu surfing an empty righthand sandbar, we are on an island near India. Dressed in the costume of the late twentieth-century surfer, jaunty cap, boxy tee, rough cotton shorts and plastic backpack, the trio hire a fishing to make the illegal crossing to the island.
It is the biggest swell in twenty five years to hit the joint, thanks to a cyclone, but…just as they’re about to leave the harbour…a cop shows up.
Cops tell ’em they can get a permit for the next day, after the swell.
What happens? Do they find the wave etc?
Watch, watch, watch.
It’s beautiful, even as disaster throbs.
