GoPro video lauds Namibia as ‘beautifully powerful’ surfing paradise

Stuck in the office again today? Wishing you could be hitting the surf instead? Don’t worry, GoPro is ready to rub it in with a postcard from Namibia.

“Get tubed even if you’re getting cubed” is the hardware and content company’s latest call to action, at least in this adventurous, slightly sodden clip. Filmed in Namibia by surfers Alex and Koa Smith, the video showcases something that the desert country isn’t often associated with — water.

“Between the animal life, contrasting desert weather and massive swell, the place has a very intense energy and it’s beautifully powerful,” said Hawaiian Alex Smith, when asked about Namibia by FreeSurfMagazine.

Namibia has ‘a very intense energy’ according to Alex Smith

“The wave is in a different league, the way the swell expresses itself on the sand bar with such perfection. It’s hard to believe what you’re seeing is real.”

The clip also features fellow boarders Koa Rothman, Benji Brand and Anthony Walsh.

Have a look at the 11-minute video below.
