Elodie Boursaus

According to your years of experience of surfing, we are excited to know, which spot you prefer the most?
Well, my home breaks. But they are secret!

Tell us, about your favourite board and the advantages to others?
I prefer a 5’8 JS.

As an athlete do you follow a special way of life?
I grew up having the ocean as my playground and I cannot imagine my life away from it. Right now I’m a student, so i put all my energy into education and surfing. I try to stay healthy, mind and body! Where i come from, we are people living off simple things and we love fish. But besides fish, I also eat heaps of fruits. Finally I can say, I’m not a city person.

What inspires you and what is your passion in life?
Especially my optimistic mother, my friends and some local surfers, for instance Hira or Michel inspire me a lot. They all represent well who tahitians are, strong and kind people!

If you could pick two people to surf with, who would they be and where would you take them?
I would definitely go surfing with Malik Joyeux and Kelly Slater to Malik’s home spot in Moorea.

Where would you like to live in the near future or what do you think is the best place to live on earth and why?
Well, my home island isn’t really a city but Tahiti or our sister island more would be where i’d like to settle later. Because of our people, the waves and nature. But a good compromise to the islands is Sydney in Eastern Australia. I live there right now, its a good balance.

What do you think about SWOX?
I trust the SWOX products – in and out of the water. I’m beyond happy to be a part of the team.
