Lost in the Swell – Africa trip with an Aevon trailer
14 March 2017 | By Marieke |
Ronan, Ewen and Aurel have decided to go on a trip along the West African coast with their bikes and Aevon trailers STD 100 to find the best surfing spots.
With their fat-bikes and their bike trailers fully loaded, each kilometer is a challenge and the maximum speed is 9km/h. In total, they have cycled for 850km along the African beaches and through the jungle with 210kg material (70kg each) to offer you the pleasure of their web series Lost in the Swell that will make you laugh and plan your next adventure very soon. A bike trip in extreme conditions with one goal : THE wave !
Their goal : find a spot, a wave that has never been surfed before, for example : “Bambi’s left” :
‘Bambi’s left is located at 5880km from Paris, 500km from Libreville airport and 58km from Mayumba which is the last village at the South of the country. To cross these 58km and reach our first wave, we needed 3 days and 3 nights. And it was hard to reach ! Our camp was located at the end of the bay, just in front of the wave. Many sitatungas (antelopes) came to dring in the lagoon close to our tents. One of them, less shy, seemed used to the cameras. We guess it was retired Bambi and decided to name this wave Bambi’s left.’
Just for your pleasure, here is a foretaste :
