Gonzalez & Acero take a trip to Morocco for a major swell

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 7 February, 2014 - Eneko Acero and Natxo Gonzalez, along with film maker Jon Aspuru, decided to travel south to meet the "Hercules" swell on the coast of Morocco. The forecast promised waves around two meters with offshore winds and plenty of sunshine - typical for the area.

The itinerary was to fly to Safi Marrakech then along the coast to Tarfalla (a distance of about 4,000 km) and to return 10 days later. As Naxto said: “(It was) good company and culture, leaving the lifestyle to which we are accustomed because in Africa you live differently.

“Along the way we also meet Kepa Acero, who started his new adventure "From Mundaka to Afrika. After being together for six days, we had to split up and take different paths while he continued his course to the south and we returned home.
