Kepa Acero doesn't do things by halves, a 45 minute trek through swamp, forest and down sheer cliff to find empty waves thanks to Mundaka being off limits during the comp.
"God.... It was so hard to be there watching an all time day in Mundaka." Said Kepa "Epic waves and watching the competitors getting barrelled, it was perfect. I couldn't hold myself anymore it was so frustrating. One of the most dramatic surfing days of my life."
"We need the south winds here in the coast, and it only happened that day. The rest of the time was west winds, which is not bad at all, but you know, after watching epic Mundaka i's like having a beautiful nude woman in front of you for a day and you can't touch her."
