Ludovic Dulou is a member of the exclusive Watermen Club, which brings together men who share a unique culture originating from coastal rescue, united by their passion for the sea and for challenging themselves. Ludovic is proud to be from Gascony, halfway between the regions of the Pyrenees and Aquitaine. After spending his childhood in Grignols, this rugby man’s son and truck farmer’s grandson has always felt strongly attached to the land, which brings back fond memories of fishing and hunting. But he is drawn to the water above all: he realized this at the age of 6 or 7 when he found that the only way to soothe his hyperactivity was by staying under the water in a swimming pool. Later on, he discovered the Australian lifeguard culture and started working hard to save lives, which naturally led him to participate in the Waterman competition. His trip to Polynesia in 1997 strengthened his relationship with the sea: he took on board the values of the local population who lives from and for the ocean, fishing, surfing, paddling… This experience motivated him to take part in prestigious competitions against some of the best lifeguards in the world. And since then, the awards just keep coming: Ludovic Dulou is three-time European champion of long distance Paddle Boarding, three-time champion of the Ocean Man International in Capbreton (2006,2007,2008) and two-time champion in his category of the legendary Molokaï competition in Hawaii. His trip to Polynesia shaped his vision of the world, to such an extent that upon returning to France, he set up his own organization which offers aqua endurance training in the legendary surfing hotspot of Belharra.
