How did you get into SUP ?

I started SUP while during a long summer without wind or waves in North of France. but I always want to spend as much time as possible on the water, so taking the paddle was the only way to have fun out there !

 

What do you do before getting in the water ?

If I go training I like to listen music very loud and warm up at home to get motivated. But when I go Surfing or Windsurfing I just try to be ready as fast as I can to jump on the water !


Tell us about your best SUPing Surfing memory

This summer I had a little road trip in the Basque Country to do some of the biggest races of the year and between the different week-ends of contest we had time to surf, train and chill with the french guys and all the racers from around the world

 

Your worst wipeout ?

I was surfing in Brittany with my SUP Surf when a huge wave  exploded on my head  and pushed me off to the cliff, I cut my feet and had to climb to come back to the beach.
I destroyed my board at the same time.

 

Who you would like to say thank you to ?

I’m very thankful to all my family who support me thoughout the year, and push me on my craziest ideas. And also a big Thanks to F-ONE team for your help and your trust on this first season together, it’s been crazy !
