Chasing The Southern Sun: August Part. 2

Arica Chilean Challenge 2017

4050 km of driving to ride a 2km long wave with 3 friends has been something I have wanted to do for a long time. After a week of driving, riding long waves and traveling through the Namibian desert I have finally achieved a goal that I have set out for a few years now. Read More …
