3 words to describe my gear: predictable, easy, performing

How did you get into kiteboarding?
I did a lot of gymnastics and trampoline when I was young. After that, I was an Olympic windsurfer. But when kitesurfing arrived around 2000 I fell in love with this discipline because it was a mix of all the sports I did previously.

What do you do before getting in the water?
I run on the beach and I do some stretching…

Tell us about your best kiting memory
It was during a boat trip in New Caledonia… We went to Nokahui, further from « l’Ile des pins » and we were alone there, just kiting with some friends in perfect translucent water…

Your worst wipeout?
In Spain one day during a storm I got eaten by a wave and then I fall in my lines… I almost drowned because I was bounded to my lines and attracted deeper and deeper. Very scary !

Who you would like to say thank you to?
To my parents, to nature and to my sponsors for giving me a chance to live my dream…
