Justine Dupont is a really energetic waterwoman, both versatile and a specialist. She's the surfer who broke all the records, and is as comfortable on a shortboard as on a longboard or a gun.
She is obsessed with chasing the greatest waves in the world.
Full of daring, Justine is passionate about the ocean, nature and loves new adventure and challenges.

Can you tell us a bit more about your passion for surfing?
I deeply enjoy spending time in nature and felling surrounded by this uncontrollable force, whereas I tend to try to control everything.
You just won the lottery, what would you do first?
For that, I would have to enter it :) As far as I'm concerned, I'm a winner every day, and I'm happy to be living my life to the fullest with goals I'm passionate about.
Otherwise, if one day I really do win something like this, I'd like to make a difference for the planet and future generations.
What’s the most amazing thing you’ve experienced?
In the unbelievable sense, in Nazaré, I got swept away in a whirlpool in the middle of the sea, after coming out of a wave under Fred's watchful eye. I sank with my board very quickly and very deep, then the ocean released me and fortunately there were no waves coming and Fred was there to pick me up. It was hard to believe what had just happened.
What are you doing during a day without wave?
I'm training to be ready when there are! Being in the ocean is always a pleasure.
Otherwise, I spend a lot of time with Fred on the computer, working on future projects. We have our YouTube channel that keeps us very busy.
