A new way to surf?

Fred Compagnon is a Hossegor surfer who has invented an amazing new way to ride waves by combining his passion for stand up paddle boards and the finless strips of wood called alaias. When the waves get huge He paddles out with both boards and does step-offs from the SUP onto the alaia. It’s weird, its wonderful, it’s very, very gnarley. Check out the tubes he gets on a finless plank of wood that’s about a quarter inch thick! Fred is an amazing waterman doing some unbelievable things in the waves so keep him on your radar.
