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.
Setting sail with a small crew from Ushuaia, Argentina on January 4th, Kepa Acero aims to be the first European to surf on the continent of Antarctica. He’ll be bringing his Patagonia R4 Wetsuit no doubt! Check out the video, and stay tuned for news of his return.
