Video: Pro Surfer Michel Bourez Shares About His Sea-Doo


As part of the Sea-Doo Inspired series, pro surfer Michele Bourez talks about life in Tahiti and how his Sea-Doo helps to make his life more productive and fun. Last year marked his 12th year on surfing’s Championship Tour where he earned the nickname, The Spartan for his sculpted physique.

Bourez strives to do better every day, whether it’s his surfing or taking care of his family. He is also the second surfer from French Polynesia to make it on the tour. His home break, Teahupoo, is literally at the end of the road in Tahiti and is one of the most dangerous waves in the world. The wave breaks below sea level over a reef that has taken a lot of skin and a few lives. Bourez is a true waterman and Tahiti is an awesome place to be.

There is water everywhere, and Bourez makes good use of his Sea-Doo because it provides the versatility he needs for life in Tahiti. He can cruise through the many reef passes to quickly search for waves and easily carry his fishing gear for when he wants to wet a hook. There is room for his family as well. His Sea-Doo is a necessity in the Polynesian Islands, especially for a man who spends his days on the water.

It’s perfect for water safety when the big swells hit because of how quickly the ski can get in there to scoop up a surfer who wipes out at Teahupoo. Bourez also uses his Sea-Doo to teach his kids about the importance of taking care of the ocean. He says, “If we all do our part, the whole world will get better.”
