Madeira Island Surf Film Festival
I’m grateful to be invited to join the Surf Film Festival in Madeira one week in September with ‘We have the power. Tony Butt’ (https://vimeo.com/97271833)
MADSWELL 2014: There are several reasons that lead to the creation of this festival and relate mainly because of the waves of Madeira are internationally known among professional and amateur practitioners looking for the ideal spots of the island for surfing, with a particular focus on Jardim do Mar, Paul do Mar and San Vicente; nicknaming this destination surf as the “The European Hawaii”!

Today the Supreme Court in Madrid gave Spain’s Repsol the go-ahead to drill for oil off Canary Islands.
But this is not the end. Supported by 10 year old surf talent Tim Elter, our amazing ambassors against oil such as Tony Butt, Janni Hönscheid & Tom Lowe , Jose Luciano Casillas Dorta, Yannick Anton, StephaneEtienne NicoleBoronat, Patagonia Environmental Initiatives, Oceana, Clean Ocean Project, and many more we will move the fight to Brussel where we challenge Spain’s decision at the European Commission as it’s not in line with European law.
THX to all who help to fight this craziness and special thx to Elena Gdm for the translation!
We’re excited that Big Wave Surfer Tony Butt speaks out for renewables, against oil drilling in Canaries. He holds a PHD in Oceonography and experienced the Prestige oil spill first hand. Thank you Tony for sharing your experiences!
