MEET NATXO GONZALEZ
Big Wave world champion surfer, born in the Basque country.
IN CONVERSATION WITH JAVIER GOYENECHE
At seven years old, he bought his first surfboard. Since then, he has never stopped fighting to become one of the best surfers in the world. Wave after wave he gets back on the board, because the key to success is never giving up.
He started competing at 11 years old, and today, at only 24 years old, he has already managed to become a Big Wave World Champion, achieving a 10 at Nazaré, and is the only Spanish surfer participating in the Big Wave World Tour.
He faces extreme and dangerous situations that cannot be one hundred percent controlled.
“Fear will always be there, it has to be present, because the ocean is capable of anything and you need to pay it a lot of respect.”
We share that mutual respect for the ocean, and together we want to raise awareness about the great challenges that the planet is facing. During our first Ocean Shooting, Natxo came to spend time with us and shared his concern for the ocean. Listen to Natxo's reflections with our founder, Javier Goyeneche. "Natxo González shares with us his concern for the ocean. The rise of global temperatures, plastic pollution and waste is affecting the oceans all over the world. Beaches are filled with white and dead corals. We have the power to change our actions, lets Act Now!"
