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.

Natxo added:

“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”

Natxo, Red Bull Media House, FRIDAY and Jon Aspuru have already started working on a project together which will air in 2019. Stay tuned.
