A Journey to Surf Antarctica

by on Wednesday 29th January, 2014   2544 Visits   Comments

It’s not necessarily the waves which pose a threat in Antarctica, more the flash fog, hidden icebergs and inconceivably cold water. Chile’s Ramon Navarro was backed by an energy drink giant on his trip to the White Continent, yet despite the extensive resources at hand it was still a monumental struggle to find anything ridable.

“There are so many breaks and so many giant waves out there,” says Ramon, who remains positive about the potential of the region. “In the right time with the right direction it’s going to be insane, you know there have to be epic waves out there.”
