Antoine Interview

Can you tell us a bit more about your passion for kitesurfing?
I started kitesurfing 15 years ago, because I directly saw that it was a pure sport, with lots of potential. It’s a mix of all the sports that I love: gymnastic, trampoline, windsurfing…
Today when I go kite, I still have a big smile on my face before, during and after a session… I love to be in the water.

 

You just won the lottery, what would you do first?
I would travel around the world with my friends and family without any watch, just following the wind and waves. I would also help kids around the world.

 

Next destination?

Vietnam, Japan and USA to shoot some documentaries for a TV channel. I’ll meet people that increase their well being without destroying nature.

“ I still have a big smile on my face before, during and after a session. ”
What’s the most amazing thing you’ve experienced?

Kitesurfing in big cities like Paris and New York. It has always been a dream for me to kite in such places - trying to connect with something natural in between the buildings…

 

What are you doing during a day without wind?

I do a lot of yoga, running, slackline, paragliding, SUP… I always find a way to play with Mother Nature ! You can watch my VLOGS on my youtube channel to feel my universe.
