Breathing Surf History

Gibus de Soultrait

Sometimes you meet people that breathe history – surf history in this case. Gibus de Soultrait, born in 1957, a year in which surfing set out to spread over the coastal areas of the world. What followed was a childhood close to the sea where he could witness the clumsy beginning and development of a distinct european surfscene. In his professional life he’s an editor and chronist of European surf ongoings, co-founded the magazine Surf Session followed by a french sidekick of the renowned Surfer’s Journal.

The curious case of a man that seems to know more about surf than most of us about life.
