“SWOX takes care of my health every day and allows me to stay longer in the water doing what I love the most.”

Franz Orsi

Do you have a favourite spot / training location?
Lisbon, Portugal.

Who or what inspires you in your daily life?
My passion in life is to be able to express the beauty of the world around me through my work and lifestyle.

Do you follow a special way of life?
I just try to enjoy what I have and make the most of my situations, knowing how lucky I am.

What is the best place on earth?
Lisbon, Portugal. There’s no other place where you can have the mindblowing surf, the stunning sceneries and the lively cultural life all packed together like this in Europe. Best place to live for me at the moment.

If you could pick two surfers (dead or alive) to go surf with, who would they be and where would you go?
I would pick my friends Sean Poynter and Boujmaa Guilloul and I would invite them for a surf exploration trip somewhere remote in search for uncrowded waves and wild territories.

What are your goals for 2018? What do you want to achieve next?
My goals for 2018 are the pretty simple. I want to continue grow my surf to raise awareness to the environmental challenges we all face, to explore more remote places and cultures while trying my best to be a better human.

One quote about SWOX?
The sun protection around. SWOX takes care of my health every day and allows me to stay longer in the water doing what I love the most.
