Ronan Gladu has made a name for himself with his surfing documentaries. He has recently appeared as a mediaman on board IMOCA boats but also on Ultim boats, where he stands out for his style: close to people, he knows how to capture life on board the big racing boats.

Ronan's first passion is bodyboarding and surfing photography: he shoots for major brands (Kanabeach, Volcom, Red Bull...), reports for the world surfing press, and covers events (French Surfing Championships, Stand Up Paddle World Championships...).

He has worked with numerous offshore skippers, including Yves Le Blevec, Paul Meilhat, Sam Davies and Isabelle Joscke.
