Elena calls herself an Ocean Addict. Unmissable in the water with her signature neon-color surfboards, she can easily spend the entire day out on the water and do it all over again the following morning.
Despite being born and raised in landlocked Paris, Elena discovered surfing at a very young age and was hooked right away. She has since been competing and shining on the international stage, always fearless yet remaining laid-back and never taking herself too seriously.

Raclette (a very balanced meal…).
Can you tell us more about your passion for your sports?
I live in Paris year-round, so I miss surfing all the time. Every time I get to go down south to surf, I can spend more than seven hours in the water daily! As long as I’m in salt water with my board, I’m happy. I am an ocean addict!
You just won the lottery, what would you do first?
I give the money to my parents, or else I’ll lose it… And I tell them to do whatever they want with it; I already have enough gifts as it is!
What’s the most amazing thing you’ve experienced?
A trip to Panama. Perfect waves with no one in the water, very hot water, and super friendly locals. It was my dream to go there, and it was even better than I imagined!
What do you do with your day when there are no waves?
I go paddling on a lifeguard rescue board or I go skateboarding. Otherwise, and that is way less fun, I do my homework.
