O’Neill Close Encounter did hit the jackpot. Nine local heroes from seven European countries joined forces with three of world’s best surfers - Cory Lopez, Mark Mathews and Shaun Cansdell - on untouched magic Moroccan surf spots. The force was with them and the unique film and photo project was firing. It had all the ingredients of the perfect surf trip: no stress, sunny skies, waves all day every day, a beautiful place to stay and the best crew to hang out with! The O'Neill family strings are tightened and all the riders scored some amazing images and footage that surpasses everybody’s wildest expectations.
