The amazing Freddy Compagnon - video

Swellnet Dispatch

You ever seen Freddy Compagnon and his step off gig? No, well he breaks all sorts of norms jumping from a SUP to an Alaia, strapped in, and then snowboarding down the line.

It used to be that Freddy would let his SUP just mow through the lineup once he was done with it but it seems he's put a stop to that. Despite the improvements in safety, this sort of carry on can only be admired from afar.

I've seen old mate pulling through some sick pits in this manner.

Amazing novelty.

Pain in the arse if you had to surf around it anymore than a one off as its basically a tow in and he consequently takes every set wave.

So its Viva la difference......for a wave or two . Then it's done.

It's good Fred. You could show these thrusting wallys a thing or two. But you can't wear sandals. Not cool. Unless you wear socks.
