Watch Kepa Acero in "Under Desert Sun"

In October of 2012, Nixon's Kepa Acero ventured to Angola alone in search of waves. On the trip, Acero discovered a perfect African sandbar with untold potential, but the swell never picked up enough to find out.

One year later, Kepa and Dane Gudauskas returned to the desolate coastline as a massive swell pulsed through the Atlantic. Under Desert Sun, by Kevin Voegtlin, documents their mission.
