Dakhla 2022 was certainly one for the history books! A promising forecast had riders and crew amped for what looked to be a thrilling event. The waves were firing, the wind was pumping and judges made use of these epic conditions starting the competition on day one. This pearling right-hander had everyone chomping at the bit and the conditions mother nature threw our way were some of the best competition conditions we could have ever asked for. The stars aligned and after three consecutive days, it was the Aussie James Carew (AUS) and rising superstar Capucine Delannoy (FRA) who were crowned our king and queen of the desert!
