Indar Unanue new ambassador for Surflogic

Surflogic is happy to welcome the Basque Waterman Indar Unanue as the brand’s International ambassador. Indar (‘strength’ in Basque) is originally from San Sebastian but has lived in Zarautz since he was 10 and forms a part of the second generation of local surfers.

From a young age Indar started to stand out in competitions and in powerful waves. At just 19 years old he went on his first trip to Hawaii which was a turning point in his career and wave became one of the most talked about of the season in Hawaii. In the most powerful swell that winter he caught one of the biggest waves in the legendary spot, Waimea with a 7’6 board and surrounded by the most famous big wave riders in the world. The photo was published and commented on by numerous surf media outlets and this launched him into worldwide fame.

From here onwards he started to combine the WQS tour with adventurous trips to places like Iceland, Canada, Norway, Tasmania, New Zealand, Namibia etc searching for the perfect waves whilst also taking advantage of the big swell in Europe.

Thanks to his perfected technique and his training Indar has stood out in the most extreme sessions in Europe and has also got excellent results in big wave competitions, like his two wins in the Punta Gale Challenge and second place in La Vaca Gigante.

For the last few years, he has dedicated his time to searching for the biggest swells in the world in the most famous big wave spots, like Mavericks (US) Puerto Escondido (Mexico), Mullaghmore (Irlanda) and Nazare (Portugal) making video footage for his sponsors.

Javier González Vega CEO of Surflogic assures us that ‘Indar is a true surfer, who loves what he does. I know few people capable to face these situations head on. He is, without a doubt, a respected surfer with respect from all over the world and with a huge amount of experience based around big wave riding. He represents our brand and shares our vision of surf. We are delighted to be able to have him for the next phase of Surflogic’.

Indar says that ‘at the moment I continue with the same energy to take big waves and I am also happy to form a part of the Surflogic family where I feel like I completely identify with their philosophy because I believe that I am a true waterman and everything they (Surflogic) do are great advantages for surfers in their daily life’

Pierre Rollet, the new ambassador for Surflogic

Surflogic welcomes the young French waterman as its ambassador. Despite only being 24 years old Pierre, originally from the French part of the Basque Country, has had incredible international recognition from the start of his sports career and in spite of being discrete, he has won the respect of some of the greatest surfers in Europe. From a young age he stood out due his surfing talent, which lead him to become one of the French team on numerous occasions as a junior competitor, reaching 3rdposition in Europe and 11thin the world.

Later he decided to continue studying rather than completely dedicating himself to surf, meaning he had to abandon his career as a pro junior, but allowing him to try out new things. After only 3 years stand up paddling he became the French champion an runner-up in Europe in the waves category. But as a great admirer of the sea, what he really enjoys is big wave surfing, and this is where his technique and experience really make him stand out. Dedicating himself 100%, he prepares himself physically and psychologically for big swells. As a result he spends a large amount of time in Nazaré (Portugal) where he can often find perfect conditions and Pierre has managed to get a number of his waves selected, in paddling category and tow in for the “WSL Big Wave Awards” which is known as the ¨Big Wave Oscars¨
