If this man looks familiar, you've probably attended the #QuikPro/#RoxyPro in #Hossegor or #ISAWorld in #Biarritz. Pierre has been managing 'water transfer' #security for #Quiksilver's surfing events for the past 8 years, after a career as a celebs #bodyguard and a lifelong love of #surfing (he is a keen #longboarder himself). While he's fortunately never needed to manage a major crisis ('with the current situation in France we need to stay very vigilant'), Pierre often has to take the heat off our fav #prosurfers, including #KellySlater who never fails to draw massive crowds: 'people can be very pushy and my job is to ensure #surfers have the space they need to keep their concentration on the competition'. Pierre can look rather intimidating when in character, black T, shaved head, rings, #tats and all, but he'll break into the biggest fanboy smile when asked about his favourite surfers:'I love them all! Boys and girls! Now I confess we all have our affinities and the first names that come to mind are @sally_fitz and @stephaniegilmore! But then @KellySlater is such an icon, I adore @mfanno as well as the French with #jeremyflores and now @joanduru who's my neighbour in #LesLandes!' If being a fan is a requirement to get into the team, no wonder Pierre got the top spot! Looking forward to seeing you run up and down that beach next year! :)
