The Baan is the name the Indians give to the tidal bore wave of the Hooghly River, a major tributary of the Ganges. It is an ephemeral wave, sweeping away everything in its path and has always been feared by the inhabitants of the city of Calcutta.
Twice a day, with the changing tide, a wave impressive in its speed sweeps inland. Although one never knows exactly where...
Three adventurers make their first attempt to surf this bore, which has never been filmed before: Antony "Yep" Colas, world expert on river waves and author of reference books on surfing, Steve King, English surfer who held the world record for the longest wave surfed until 2011, and Gaetan Sene, star of the stand up paddle.
An extraordinary adventure in a country in which everything is different, and above all much more complicated in terms of logistics: rare and amazing moments on this sacred river.
