Koa Smith: he scored eight barrels on a single wave at Skeleton Bay | Photo: Koa Smith

Koa Smith is absolutely stoked. The pro surfer from Kauai rode an endless dream wave in the heart of Africa. Where? You know where.

It is probably the wave of a lifetime. Smith couldn't believe what he was experiencing, and his point-of-view camera doesn't lie either.

Can you imagine surfing a natural wave for two minutes, scoring eight barrels, and traveling a total distance of around a mile (1.5 kilometers)?

Smith is still daydreaming. Coming from Hawaii, Koa is used to warm water and reef breaks.

In this desert wave, there's only cold water and sandy bottoms. But there's one common denominator - the barrel.

Skeleton Bay delivers one of the longest left-hand waves in the world on Namibia's Atlantic coastline. Cory Lopez first surfed it in 2008.

The spot, initially hailed as "the new Cape St. Francis" and "Cory's Left," is located on the Skeleton Coast, 110 miles north of Luderitz and west of the NamibRand Nature Reserve.
