My name is Julien Bouyer, 2 times windsurf World Champion, 1 time windsurf European Champion, Vice-European SUP surf Champion and ROOKIE of the year on the Stand Up World Tour 2014.
What is the reason you committed your life to windsurfing and SUP?
My uncle is Antoine Albeau, 22 times windsurf World Champion and also a great waterman riding all the waves until the biggest like Peahi (Jaws) and Belhara. My parents have a surfshop, my sister and my little brother practice watersports too. So watersports and all about the ocean are in the family.
What is your biggest achievement in your sport?
My biggest achievements were the both world titles in windsurf which one was in San Francisco and more recently the title of ROOKIE of the year on the SUP world tour 2014!!
"So watersports and all about the ocean are in the family."
What are you doing to push yourself everyday?
I go on the water each day when the conditions are good!!
What is your vision on what direction the sport should go?
I think SUP surf is a young sport in competition and it will become more and more radical like surfing.
