On September 22nd, 2006, the global surfing scene was concentrated in Hossegor for the first European stop of the World Championship. Bad wave conditions forced the organisers to cancel the competition. All looks turned then towards the village of Mundaka, where an unforgettable freesurf session was about to take place. Kelly Slater, Andy and Bruce Irons, Mick Fanning, Joel Parkison… never before in surf history had such a concentration of world champions been seen together in the water, at the same time, surfing perfect waves. But these legends had to share the Basque sands with locals such as Eneko and Kepa Acero, or Aritz Aranburu, who were also decided to surf the swell of their lives in their own backyard. Produced by Oxbow and directed by Jon Aspuru based on an original idea of Greg Rabejac, the film “MUNDAKA, THE LEGENDARY DAY” tells the story of this magical session that would leave a permanent mark in European surf history.
