How did you get into kiteboarding?
My dad and my brother JB bought one of the first tube kite back in 1999. It took me two years to give the sport a try but once I did, I was hooked!

What do you do before getting in the water?
Putting my knee brace on!

Tell us about your best kiting memory.
Probably 10 years ago shooting a MANERA movie on Mitu’s island, Sal in Cape Verde. A very big waves session, trying to survive in eight-meters waves. And I caught the biggest of the day!

Your worst wipeout?
Training for speed at home in 10 cm of water, and crashing at 100 km/h… It took me 150 meters to stop! And two appointments with my chiropractor to get my back and neck back in order.

Who you would like to say thank you to?
Big thanks to my dad who has helped me all along my career, in the good and very bad moments!

One sentence about the products that you are using.
Today, all the development and efforts we put in the FURTIVE range makes it a real extension of me on the water!
