Justine Dupont has made a great impact on the big wave surf scene and is currently flying the flag for France on the World Surf League Women’s Longboard Tour. The Billabong rider not only rips on a longboard, she charges on her shortboard too! Miss Dupont is a true woman of the water and we love watching her surf, here’s why;

• Charges BIG waves!
Justine is one brave surf girl and charges some pretty crazy waves. In 2013 she surfed some of the biggest waves in the world when she took off on a 15-meter wave at the famous Belharra in France. She also paid a visit to Ireland to catch some pretty impressive waves at Mullagmore giving the guys a run for their money and stamping her mark on the big wave scene.

Justine rips on all boards and is the current French National Champion of both divisions. Whatever board she has under her feet, Justine will surf it with grace and power. Unstoppable!

• A great role model for the sport
Justine has got a great outlook, she loves surfing and enjoys every aspect of it. Her positive, yet focused attitude makes her a great role model for the younger generation of surfer girls. Justine has achieved so much in her career already and she’s only 27. Who knows what the future holds for this French champion?
