Travel is of course a cornerstone of adventure and outdoors culture and no more so than within the world of surfing. For Basque Countryman Kepa Acero though, surf travel isn’t defined just by chasing swells and discovering remote setups in all corners of the globe. Instead it’s an opportunity to immerse himself in local culture, a vehicle to connect with local people and experience a way of life so different to his own.

In this latest from filmmaker Igor Bellido, Kepa joins Dane Gadauskas in embedding with a local community in Senegal and sampling both local delicacy and the waves on offer.

For issue 1 back in 2019, we interviewed Kepa to hear more about his approach to travel and exploration. You can check it out here
