Michel Bourez, or the Spartan if you prefer, cares little for reputation. Be they his, or those of his rival.
Nor is he much perturbed by being pigeonholed, labelled as a ‘these conditions’ or ‘that venue’ contender.
He just wants to win. More importantly – knows he can.
So while many surf fans, from insider to arm chair were surprised at the Spartan’s ascent from reef specialist to dangerman in every condition, you can bet he wasn’t.
Michel challenges himself to achieve bigger and better every day, by asking ‘What If’.
