Basque surfer Natxo Gonzalez (23) is delighted to sign a deal with Xcel Wetsuits.
When Mundaka gets big, Natxo is a regular face in the lineup and is respected by many for his fearless approach, mixing a high level of performance technique with a powerful attack on the huge waves.
Natxo is also the youngest surfer ever to qualify for the WSL Big Wave World Tour.
It’s not just about big waves!
Natxo has a passion for exploration and the discovery of new waves. He travels the globe using Google Maps and isn’t afraid to take a chance. If he finds a spot and everything lines up, then he jumps on a flight, and the adventure begins.
As the news of his Xcel signing comes out, Natxo is also releasing the news of his new contract with Red Bull.
“Red Bull are always up for projects and a massive help in Nazaré with jet skis and the hangar. It’s just the perfect fit and the best brand in supporting me in what I love doing be it chasing the biggest swells or discovering new exciting waves around the world”
