For professional surfer Michel Bourez, being on and in the water has always been an essential part of his life. Born in Tahiti, French Polynesia the 35-year-old surfer learned to live life to the fullest in the waters of the Pacific Ocean. His birthplace and chosen profession as a surfer means a lot of his life is centered around the ocean.
As Michel spends most of his days at Teahupoʻo doing things like scouting for surfing places or going fishing with his family, a jet is essential for living the best possible life for him. This is why he’s a natural ambassador for Sea-Doo and we are super delighted to have Michel on board with us as a Sea-Doo ambassador.
See Michel, who represented France in the Tokyo Olympics, talk about how the first thing he needs back home in Tahiti is a Sea-Doo and how teaching his children to respect the ocean is important to him. This is his way to live the Sea-Doo life.
