My name is Xan Atchoarena Masterson, I was born in Barakaldo near Bilbao in the Spanish Basque Country on December 7th2007, I have just turned 14 last December. My parents are from the French Basque country, my father is French and my mother is British but she grew up in a town called St Jean de Luz as from the age of 9. They moved to the Bizkaia coast 17 years ago because my father got a job at Bilbao’s airport.

My father who is an avid surfer pushed me onmy first wave when I was 4, I never stopped ever since. The fact that my house sits right next to the beach, that my friends are surfers and the surf school is a mere 5´walk helped me to keep surfing as my main hobby. Not to mention that around Sopela there is a surfable spot everyday, no matter wave size or wind condition. Mundaka is a mere 40 minute away and Meñakoz, a gnarly punchy right point break, 5 minutes away.

As my parents have been having the possibility to travel quite often, we have been lucky enough to surf many parts of the world like: Nicaragua (6 times), El Salvador (4 times), Sri Lanka, Morocco, Maldives (twice), Senegal and Canaries island.

I started competing around 9 years old, starting locally in the Spanish Basque country and Cantabria (Santander), I even became Cantabria’s champion in the U12 category. Later on around 12, I started to compete in the French circuit as well. I really enjoy competing, it makes me discover new breaks and meet new friends. Making it to the finals and, even winning sometimes, makes it even more enjoyable. I love the atmosphere, the little stress while getting ready to enter my heat, the concentration needed in the heat, and above all the feeling of getting out of the water as the winner of the heat!

Having the Peña Txuri surf school next door has really helped me achieve a good technic, I pretty much train there everyday after school, I am grateful to the two trainers I had over the years Txaber Gaminde when I was younger and then Aritza Saratxaga. When I started to perform, Aritza took me to the next level throwing me in all kind of conditions. In 2021 I became France’s number one in the U14 category. This performance opened me the door to the French surf federation, which started to take interest in me and took me on for some training sessions with great trainers like Thomas El Maallem and Arnaud Darrigade, they even brought me to El Salvador last February in preparation for the ISAs.

As fate would have it, our friend Jon Herrera (CX surfboard) who is as well our next doorneighbour shapes fine surfboards while his wife helps him out with the glassing and sanding. He shaped my first surfboard when I was 5. He always delivers me great performing surfboards. He helped me out to get some freebies from Futures fins through their European distributor Viral Surf from Biarritz.

After my second national victory in Lacanau France, I was approached by Soorüz to supply me with great wetsuits, it is a French wetsuit brand from La Rochelle France.

My favorite surfer is Ethan Ewing.

  • Favorite surf break / lafitenia
  • Board / cabianca

  • Biggest Achievement / vice champion de france cadet
  • Hobbies / surf, pelote, rugby
Je m’appelle Iñigo Madina, j’ai 15 ans et j’habite à Urrugne. Je devais avoir 4 ans environ la première fois que j’ai fait du surf. Mes grands frères aimaient déjà surfer des petites vagues et mon oncle était un passionné de surf.

Peu après, j’ai découvert le rugby, c’est un sport qui m’a bien plu mais j’ai décidé de choisir le surf, le plaisir de la glisse l’a emporté ! Déjà petit, je pouvais passer des heures dans l’eau, j’étais inépuisable, ce qui m’a permis de progresser rapidement.

J’ai commencé à voyager avec mon coach à l’âge de 10 ans, il voulait me faire découvrir de nouvelles vagues et me faire apprendre de nouvelles techniques. Je suis allé aux Canaries, au Panama, au Maroc, à Bali, au Portugal. L’eau y est souvent plus chaude et je pouvais rester de longues heures à traquer la vague en plein hiver ! Je pense que ces voyages m’ont beaucoup aidé à progresser. Et à devenir autonome aussi !!! Et puis j’ai eu la chance de découvrir de nouveaux paysages et des cultures différentes.

J’ai rapidement commencé les compétitions. Depuis le début, je m’entraîne au HSBC et en particulier avec mon coach Eric. J’aime la compétition, c’est pour moi très motivant pour avancer !

Hello I'm 17, I'm born and raised on the island of Tahiti in the Pacific. I was raised with her brothers by the lagoon near Teahupo'o and surfing came naturally.
Multiple French Polynesian champion, I decided in 2020 to leave my island to join the Pôle France de Surf in Biarritz in order to reconcile studies and international competitions.
Today, member of the French Surf team, I try to perform in both the turquoise barrels and the Europeans waves. Champion of Aquitaine, Vice-Champion of France, 4th European junior I'm one of the hopes of French and Tahitian surfing.
Just a few weeks before graduating from high school, I want to continue studying management of the sport while fully entering the world of competition with the focus on the Olympic Games that will take place at her home, in Teahupo'o, in 2024.
