What is the craziest thing you ever did?
I sailed with Raphaël and Mitu in One Eye in Mauritius one day where we had waves of 8 meters. If the wind drops … it’s not good.

What is your biggest dream?
I dream to begin paragliding. It will happen soon !

What’s your favorite quiver?  
The new bandit and the Mitu 5’8”.

What’s your favorite spot and why? 
Just in front my house because I can go there every day. But I also really like One Eye in Mauritius. This wave is really deep.

What do you do after a great kite session? 
If it’s not too late I take away my harness and my kite and I go surfing when the wind fall..

What’s a perfect session for you? 
I love when the conditions allow me to push my limits and discover a new spot in the same time. These two feelings together remind me again and again how fascinating our sport is.

If you had to reincarnate, what would that be into? 
A mountain bird like an eagle to play with several winds.
