Nor da Imanol Yeregi? /
Turning his passion into his profession. That is how the 23-year-old surfer Imanol Yeregi started Surfing Zumaia. Imanol started surfing with his dad at the age of 6 and he has been travelling around the world competing in the WQS tour during several years. At that time, there were no surf coaches or groups to train in Zumaia, so Imanol decided to start training in Zarautz, where the surf culture was way more spread.
It was in Zarautz where Imanol had the chance to meet well known surfers such as Aritz Aranburu, Hodei Collazo and Axi Muniain. Imanol worked hard and he won many championships at a very short age, which gave him the chance to join the Quicksilver team. Hence, Quicksilver, gave him the opportunity to start training with Aitor Francesena, Gallo, and meet great friends like Natxo Gonzalez. Since then, Imanol has travelled with his surfboard all over the world, looking for the best surfing spots and waves, and competing against the best surfers. Nowadays, besides directing his own project at Surfing Zumaia, he is the main technical coach of the Surfing Association of Gipuzkoa.
