There’s a lot to admire about the modest and super talented Basque surfer Aritz Aranburu.
For one, he is currently rated in the top 32, surfing against Kelly Slater on the World Championship Tour.
“Aritz might just be the quietest overachiever in surfing…”
Secondly, he is one of surfing’s great adventurers, constantly traveling the world in search of perfect, big waves. Thirdly, he is going out with one of Spain’s top models in Almudena Fernández.
Fernández has been on the cover of Elle, Vogue and Marie Claire and done campaigns for Victoria’s Secret and Givenchy among others.
Based between New York and Milan she is also a committed environmental activist and the founder of KindSurf, a NGO set up to raise awareness of environmental protection and helping disadvantaged youth.
Yes, Aritz might just be the quietest over achievers in surfing. We salute you!
