Come Get Acquainted With Tahiti’s Most Chiseled Tube Deity
Michel Bourez was forged from iron and speckled with gold!
Michel Bourez is the most powerful surfer in today’s competitive ranks.
Used to be Pancho Sullivan, Rob Machado held the title for a hot minute, but it’s been all about Michel for the past five or so years.
With legs the size of pier pilings and pecks that cast a shadow, it’s no wonder Michel is a master of displacing water. Rumor has it he was DC’s first choice for the recent Aquaman film, but they were forced to settle for Jason ‘Noodle-arms’ Momoa when Michel made too big of splashies in the set pool and ruined all their equipment.
The Tahitian also grapples with men for fun, has a loving wife and children, and knows his way around a gaping funnel, which despite how it sounds is totally unrelated to the two former qualifiers.
