In the summer of 2013, Brazil’s Alejo Muniz spent an afternoon surfing under an extremely dark cloud cover. For exactly one wave the sun poked through the clouds and illuminated five solid turns down the line, then it disappeared again. It seemed like a message from above. A few days later, Alejo won the US Open in Huntington Beach.
