Michel Bourez is a French professional surfer born on 30 December 1985 in Rurutu, French Polynesia, France.[1]

Biography[edit]

Michel Bourez started surfing in French Polynesia at age 13.[2] European champion in 2006, Michel entered the ASP World Tour in 2009.[citation needed]

His best results on the World Tour came in 2014, with a 5th place in the overall classification, having won twice during the year: at Margaret River Pro 2014 and Rio de Janeiro and 3rd place in Fiji Pro.[citation needed]

His 2015 season was hampered by a severe injury in May, when doing a free surf session at Teahupoo. A fractured hand and cervical vertebra forced him out of the Rio and Fidji events.[citation needed]

In 2016, he earned his 3rd career victory at the Billabong Pipeline Masters, final event of the 2016 World Tour, finishing 6th overall.[citation needed]
