WATCH: Michel Bourez Tears into the Tuamotu

By on

What to do when you know you’re not going to be able to surf for six months following surgery? If you’re Michel Bourez, you book the ultimate surf trip to the Tuamotu islands to score perfection in crystal clear waters with fellow tour veteran Jeremy Flores, young hopeful Mihimana Braye, and J-B Prunier.

Just before Christmas last year and his impending knee surgery, Bourez toured around home and happened upon what we would describe as the perfect right-hander. It's probably why the title of this edit is exactly what it says it is — Michel Bourez scores perfection in the Tuamotu.

Queue a sick edit of said right hander being ripped to shreds by the Tahitian and his comrades in 3 minutes and 43 seconds. This one’s got barrels, floaters and big-turns with the beat to match. Hit play, above. Then, check out our French Polynesia surf guide, here.
