A slow voyage through Africa

The African continent deserves to be taken in slowly. Too magnificent and solemn, to be rushed through. You must take Africa slow, as it is.
Slow and inevitable as the tides, as the ever changing shades of turquoise over a Zanzibar reef. Like Stone Town wakening to a spotless sunrise – seemingly unaware of its past as the queen of all spice and slave trades in the world. Slow, like a ferry, sliding over glassy waters.

Autumn is a special moment for Hossegor, as the small town on the Atlantic Ocean prepares to host WSL Pro France, and a large number of pro surfers share the waves with locals.
