MARC Lacomare, Alain Rioua and Aritz Aranburu score an endless diamond tipped left on Namibia’s Skeleton Coast.
Somewhere in Namibia sits this flawless left, it’s not really a secret, more just a mission to surf. Why don’t you want to head here? It’s located in the Namib Desert, an area estimated to have been arid for 55 million years, making it the oldest dust bowl on the world. The shark fishing here is outstanding, people head here from the far corners to hook 400lb bronze whalers from the shore, reputedly there’s nowhere like it.
Still fancy it? Of course you do, snaffle one of those endless drainers and take my leg, it’s a fair exchange.
Kepa finds himself in a land of perpetual dancing and broad smiles.
Pick a solid swell, make the treacherous paddle, avoid the fang-like rocks on the inside, and you could score some of the longest rights of your life.
If Jack Kerouac surfed he would have chewed his beatnik leg off to get on this trip. Desert Point to Shipstern and everything in between.
Not all winter is cold, even if the country is in danger of washing away there will be surfers lapping up the storms
Those two imposters, triumph and disaster, go hand in hand in the sport of bodyboarding, especially for those hellmen who push the boundaries of what is surfable.
