Torren Martyn and Ishka Folkwell’s Lost Track Atlantic series is back for episode three.
It’s another vivid celebration of the very best aspects of van-based surf travel, a beautiful visual diary of spontaneous encounters with waves, people, places and cultures and an ode to the indescribable joy of bumbling around with nowhere to be.
Six weeks into their trip, we find the boys delving deeper into the vibrant markets and long spinning points of Morocco, before pointing south and heading off towards the Sahara. En route, they pass sun flushed mountains and small desert villages, towering cacti and goats that eat from trees.
Somewhere along the way, they meet a surfer named Omar, who has set up life in a cave in front of a hollow little slab and invites the boys in for food and to share a few sessions. Surfed out and bellies full they hit the road again and venture deeper into Western Sahara where they stumble across – you guessed it – more perfect roping right-handers.
