MANERA's latest adventure movie 79°NORTH is out.WATCH THE MOVIE
Etienne started Kitesurfing in 1993, as a true kite & windsurf lover, it felt natural for him to try Kiting. Since then he has done it all: Freestyle world tour, wave world tour, adventurer, coach…
Born in French Brittany and still living there, he enjoys nature and wild landscapes, he’s the guy that feels at ease in a cold Iceland storm. He’s probably the most passionate Kiteboarder in the world, and this passion doesn’t change a bit over the year.
For me, kite is a amazing engin, who can drive to the big wave riding and also to the summit of mountains. Now with the kitefoil I can sail so fast with almost no wind that give an incredible feeling of freedom. So many things to experience with the same kite.
Ireland is one of the best place in Europe to find good waves and wind. And it's near about my home. Irish people are so cool, weather is fresh, and landscape super green. I love this place.
Ski-kite is one of the most coolest sport. You can ride up the mountains, fly down or free ski and enjoy six hours of ride by day. The potentiel is huge considering Scandinavia and the Alpes. This is a super easy sport.
Surfing, is an other passion complementary with kiteboarding.
