Seven countries and 8,000 miles later we finally arrive at our end destination, the Southern coast of Portugal.
Our two athletes represented here in this video showcase very different ends of the surfing sphere, with the graceful longboard surfing skills of Andrea Molina Torn counterbalanced with the power-based short board approach of the hard-charging Eric Rebiere.
Just like the full European experience, we end with this diverse mix of gender and surf styles, and nothing feels more appropriate. We were also very fortunate to have the amazing Frankie Chavez from Lisbon perform the soundtrack for us, which he did on a 12-string Portuguese Guitarra.
Surfer and filmmaker Mikey Corker has this to say on the journey, "The West coast of Europe is amazing. As we traveled through the various regions that made up the different episodes, we realised just how diverse the West coast of the European continent actually is.
"The geography, the cultures, languages, food, everything. I think what is more important though, is what the similarities to be found were, especially within the local surfing communities we were fortunate enough to spend time with. No matter what language everyone speaks, or what kind of upbringing they had, as a surfer the universal languages of respect and stoke are always going to be understood, no matter whether you grew up on a beach, a strand, a playa or a praia."
