About the Shot
Sam Bleakley, surfing a right point with shipwreck in the No Man's Land of the Nouadhibou Peninsula in North Africa. The peninsula currently does not officially belong to any country. Formerly part of the Spanish Sahara until 1975, since claimed by Morocco and currently occupied by a detachment of Mauritanian Army soldiers, it has several high-quality right points surrounded by land mines. If the Mauritanian Commandante likes you, you can surf. There has not been any active fighting since the early 1990's and the soldiers are very bored. If he doesn't like you, no surfing. The Commandante can provide a guide to ride shotgun through the minefields to reach Metorites, this long right point with two shipwrecks. If he likes you. Bring gifts and parlez en français, si vous plait.
