True to the spirit of the brand, the Oxbow team comprises a group of passionate young French ambassadors, high-level riders and watermen seeking new thrills and a lifestyle that keeps them in contact with the ocean. Their aim: to have fun discovering new spots and new sensations.
The inseparable Teulade brothers, Ludovic and Jeremy, are usually to be found somewhere in the leading bunch of racers at all the big national and international competitions, and if not there, then riding and exploring some of the most amazing spots on the planet on their trusty SUPs. Most recent SUP trips : Canary Islands and New York !
The Teulade boys continue their quest for the SUP Grail, with three major trips planned for this year:
February : A tour of Tahiti, the south Pacific paradise.
April : A carnival of canals in Venice, exploring the legendary city and its waterways.
Autumn : A third destination, to a winter-wonderland, is in preparation and will soon be revealed.
Ludovic Dulou is part of that exclusive club of experienced watermen sharing a unique cultural mix of beach/coastal rescue and safety, love of the ocean, and pushing your personal limits to the extreme. Always challenging himself. What drives his passion ? Waves, BIG waves, extreme down-winds, tidal river bores.
On the immediate programme:
February : Tenerife Downwind (Canary Islands).
May : Tidal bore riding in India.
Pierre’s life is all about the ocean. Work, training, long voyages, personal encounters… A true all-round waterman, Pierre is a master of Prone paddleboard, stand up paddle, open sea swimming, surfing, (dug-out) canoe… An ocean life also spent saving lives : he’s recently become part of the Helicopter Rescue Team at Lacanau Ocean in south-west France.
A number of photo shoots of the young waterman are planned, for SUP and Prone.
They’ll be happening in France during the coming months.
