These days, getting barrelled with one mate out in the line-up is a rare delicacy. To have this privilege, you need to go into the unknown, to places where no one else will be. A place where you may find this fortune is in the middle of the African desert.
Free-surfers Natxo Gonzalez and Kepa Acero camped in a tent for a month, waiting for the potential perfect wave to turn on. After a month of disappointment in the middle of nowhere the surfers were rewarded for their perseverance.
The duo would have a day of unlimited barrels, with so many perfect waves to choose from that they couldn’t decide which ones to surf.
“We let waves pass and you think, how is it possible that I am letting this one go.”
There’s a bit of comedy from the duo too, enjoy!
