Gran Canaria, Galdar – 2021
Gran Canaria – Winter swells – 2020,2021
While the world is closing borders for health reasons,
as we cannot run the seas to surf unknown waves,
the bodyboarding addicts need their shoot of motivation.
The swell have been generous during 2021-2021 winter time in Gran Canaria.
Many films were shot during this period on my home spots in Galdar.
In all weather, in extreme conditions, there are « crazy » people who watch the riders in waves and film new images.
Christian Antunez is one of those water-videastes and he has filmed and edited this video.
You will enjoy adrenaline and motivation comping through these highlights in my favourite playground, down my house.
I love riding these waves, every one is a new momentum, a new impetus, a new thrill and a new game… as is life.
LIFE IS BODYBOARD !

Gran Canaria & Chile – Waves, daring, falls, exploits – 2019 & 2020
Resilience : in physics, value characterizing the impact resistance of a metal.
Waves, reef, beach breaks, slabs… sometines a wave can be as hard as metal.
Resilience : in psychology, ability to overcome traumatic shocks.
Being resilient means being able to bounce back and rebuild after a difficult time.
Bodyboarding is an extreme sport that exposes the rider to risks, choices, shocks, falls and the need to get up.
Being a bodyboarder asks you to push yourself, feel confident, hold on, never give up.
While some people seem to possess this strength in an innate way, it is never too late to learn to mobilize one’s vital momentum.
Whether you are a rider, a competitor and just a human, you will need resilience at least once in your life…
RESILIENCIA is a film full of motivation, adrenaline, action, conscience and resilience.
The waves force me to be always ready, attentive and focused and to feel both strong and humble.
