Team rider Florian Jung and his buddies have been surfing one of the longest waves in the world at Skeleton Bay in Namibia. This wave is caused by winter storms in the South Atlantic and breaks only 1-2 times a year when all conditions are 100% right. At the edge of a desert, a kind of headland has formed in recent years due to sand drifts, whose orientation and shape has transformed the Atlantic water masses into one of the most powerful and longest waves in the world. To be on site on day X, perfect timing is required, which can be precisely determined days in advance using state-of-the-art weather measurements and satellite images. Flo Jung has been waiting 4 years for this moment, that all factors like orientation and size of the wave fit perfectly together.

At the end of August it was time to book flights and a special off-road vehicle to tackle the adventure with a few surf buddies. The waves exceeded all expectations and broke extremely powerful with a never seen perfection over a distance of over two kilometers. Such waves are gifts of nature. Apart from the adventurous approach across the desert, including shifting dunes and quicksand, extreme currents and very hollow breaking waves await you in 15 degrees cold water, which break with full force on a shallow sandbank. For Florian Jung this place is and remains a supernatural phenomenon with the "best wave" in the world for him.
