HOME TOWN: Tahiti
FAV BREAK: Teahupoo
There’s locals and then there’s locals. Cedrik is the latter. He is one of the original Teahupoo boys, one of the few to truly call the place home. His quiet demeanour on land quickly transitions when things get serious in the water, and this is where you see two titans going toe to toe.
For many, Cedrik is a new name in the world of Bodyboarding. However, anyone that has ventured to ‘The End of the Road’ on Tahiti’s south west tip will certainly know and respect his name. Cedrik shone in the APB Sparkgreen Tahiti Challenge this year, schooling many of the sports elite at a wave we’re certain he can surf with his eyes closed. With a new found love for riding big Teahupoo, and just the right equipment, we can look forward to seeing more of Cedrik taming the beast.
