The Surfers

Mark Harris

Mark ‘Egor’ Harris (Great Britain)

Mark Harris (Egor to his friends) is one of Britain’s best-loved surfers. He’s as at home in an international contest as he is exploring remote regions for new waves.

Born and raised in Newquay Cornwall, Mark has been surfing since he was 6. He started competing at 10 and has won every age group at the English and British championships. Mark has proudly represented England and Britain numerous times at the European and world games.

Away from the comp scene, Mark’s focus and passion is exploring remote coastlines around Britain, waiting patiently for the right winter swells and uncovering world-class waves that have never been ridden. This passion led onto filming the surf documentary ‘The Endless Winter’.

“I have been lucky enough to compete around the world at iconic surf spots I dreamed of as a child and I’m really excited about documenting our explorations around Europe in Endless Winter II, See you in the lineup!”

Kepa-Acero

Kepa Acero (Spain)

Kepa is a one of a kind surfing talent. Despite being one of the best competition surfers of his generation, Kepa decided to hang up his contest jersey and follow his own path, travelling the world making self-shot surf adventure films, enjoyed by millions on-line.

His “5 Waves, 5 Continents” series propelled Kepa into the surfing spotlight and the hearts of the international surf community. He has been awarded as “Adventurer of the Year”, sailed on a boat to the remote Antarctic, got lost in Africa, Indonesia and beyond. In Endless II, Kepa will be staying closer to home, showing Mark the wonders of his home coast, Northern Spain.

Abdel-El-Harim

Abdel El Harim (Morocco)

Abdel is Morocco’s number one surfer and the reigning African surf champion.

While Morocco is an international surfing mecca, the Moroccan’s themselves have been late to get the surfing bug, Abdel has (pretty much single handedly) changed that!

Since 15, Abdel has been competing with the best in Europe and he’s been making an impression on the WQS ever since. Abdel is one of the few world-class surfers from an Arabic nation and a great role model for underdog nations in surfing.
