The Inertia

If you’re a good enough surfer, you can ride any wave in the world. That’s certainly the case with French bodysurfing champion Nathan Lehoux. And he doesn’t even need a board. The 19-year-old is a phenom in the bodysurfing scene and he doesn’t need the ocean, either. Here, Lehoux shreds a small wave on the Nive River in the French Basque Country. Nathan has won multiple titles in his young career, including a world championship in August of 2019 in Oceanside, Calif. Check the clean conditions Lehoux found himself in at the Bodysurf Cup of France (Coupe de France de Bodysurf) in 2018 (below), which he won. He’s in the red singlet.


Only the best. We promise.
