“We ourselves see in all rivers and oceans. It is the image of the ungraspable phantom of life, and this is the key to it all": the indefatigable travel filmmaker Guille Cascante accompanied his close friend Bargués on the unique voyage, with a second trip planned for Antarctic in 2017 to complete the mi- gratory cycle of its avian namesake.

Surf Morocco by Albert Folch and Dizy Díaz, Chapter XXXI
Crossing the Pillars of Hercules, the ancient limit of civilization and the end of our journey, we reach the winding streets and the narrow alleyways of the great Marrakech, the tightly-packed houses of the little villages, the mysterious beauty of the medinas, the surreal empty supermarkets in the middle of nowhere. But we are heading to the ocean. There, we will eventually find our destination, the Moroccan beaches, looking for our wave. An experience in two Chapters.
A stop to get some food before leaving Marrakesh, on the way to the surfspots. The almost empty and surreal supermarket is plenty of goods locals can't afford.

Surfer and Art director
Founder and creative director from Folch, a graphic design agency based in Barcelona working for the most prestigious national and international clients. Albert was one of the founders of the acclaimed Apartamento magazine. Partner of the new footwear brand Deux Souliers, he is behind the erotic publication Odiseo and Eldorado, one of his most ambitious projects. Beside his creative skills, he is a nature lover and he is absolutely addicted to surf.
Local surfer from Playa de Sta. Marina (Ribadesella, Asturias) and freelance photographer, Dizy uses analogue photography as a form of expression. He sees the imperfection of film and the dirt of grain as something truly authentic. When he was 15, 'Paris-Texas' by Wim Wenders changed his way of seeing the things around him. In that moment, he choose photography as a travel mate for the rest of his life. His first work as a photographer was a portrait of the city of his birth, which represents a strong influence in the aesthetics of his photography.
