The false pilgrims have a name in the region, they are called "coquillards", that's us, the coquillards of Manera!Watch the film
He is world bodysurfing champion and the standard he has achieved in the sport needs no further proof. Fred David is passionate about the ocean, the natural world and his adventurous lifestyle. He makes the most of his twofold ability as an athlete and a lifeguard by being Justine Dupont's "best partner in crime".
Calm is his greatest asset in situations where risk goes off the scale! If everything were that easy, it would be less notable. Fred needs tough and demanding conditions to have a bit of fun.
More than surfing, I love to be in the water and in the waves, on a surfboard, swimming, diving , driving a jet... Swimming led me to sea rescue which introduced me to body surfing and then surfing later.
Now, I find a mix of everything in big wave surfing, it's great.
I'm thinking of doing projects about environmental matters.
Otherwise, I would also like to be able to help to develop safety in surfing big waves especially in Nazare.
Probably a trip to Europe on a swell by the end of the winter and then Tahiti before the summer. I've never been there, I can't wait!
Living from my passion, dreaming of new projects, setting them up, making them happening and sharing them with people I like.
Right now I'm spending a lot of time on the computer developing our YouTube channel... with Justine.
We frequently post videos that we direct, film and edit on our own and it takes quite a while.
It's really interesting and we've got some busy days ahead!
