"The feeling you get surfing inside a tube, focused on keeping your balance while the water splashes and the wave engulfs you, is literally indescribable."
Guillermo Carracedo, Ocean Born Patron
Guillermo Carracedo, our Ocean Born Patron, is Spain’s four time SUP surf champion and the world top 5 champion in ISA & APP individual modality, as well as sub champion with the Spanish Surfing Federation.
Guillermo studied medicine at the University of Salamanca but his passion for sports and the ocean, surfing in particular, set him on a different path.
Guillermo comes from a family who, as lighthouse keepers, have always been connected to the ocean and felt responsible for it. From early childhood he was very aware of the environment, the increasing waste and the changes this was causing to the ocean and his surroundings.
His passion for surfing goes beyond competing to finding new places with challenging waves. He also considers it vital to be part of the clean-up of the oceans.
