Kepa Acero in Antarctica

Kepa Acero in Antarctica

As we mentioned in a previous blog post, Kepa Acero is leaving to Antarctica to scout out surf spots, and become the first European to surf on the continent.  The photo above was posted on Kepa’s Facebook yesterday.  Wearing his Patagonia R4 Wetsuit in water under 2 Degrees Celcius.  Seems like insanity, but then again, the R4 is the warmest suit on the planet.  Here is a video/interview of them departing.  You can follow Kepa at his Facebook Page, or on his YouTube Channel.

    • Wow, long session! That’s awesome, glad you’re stoked on the Flash Bomb 6/5/4. That is definitely up there with the R4 for sure, and bit more flexible also :)
