Story

 

BACÁN

/baˈkan/

Adjective. One of the most popular words of Chilean slang. A very common expression for saying something or someone is cool, brilliant or awesome.

Trekking through majestic forests and expanses of black sand, our two iconic cold-water surfers Pete Devries and Ian Fontaine go in search of the greatest waves across the pristine landscapes of Chile.

"Here, everything took on another dimension. We got lost in forests and on dirt roads. The coast was still well preserved, so access was sometimes difficult. Clearly, a good session must be earned."

"My favorite spot of the trip was the one we named the "Jesus Light Wedge". It was a wedge between two rocks, which formed a nice straight line; super fun with rippable walls and air sections."

"On the last days, we saw some tubular peaks at the bend of a bay, so we naturally checked it out. By chance, we found a beach break of the Landes type, with proper offshore winter tubes."
