Greg Closier, who comes from the French region of Brittany, has been surfing for almost his entire life. He’s been a surf instructor and coach for 20 years now. Nowadays, he resides in San Clemente, California, where he pursues his passion for surfing to its fullest. He is a first-generation stand up paddler in Europe, having begun with SUP surf initially, before taking up SUP race, and he maintains a particular penchant for downwinding. These days, Closier is primarily focused on coaching, but he still competes and trains as much as he can, despite his heavy schedule. Closier has recently become more and more interested in SUP foil, which is a whole new way of riding the ocean waves.
