Mickaël
Fernandez

Micka is part of F-ONE’s R&D team as the main tester; he excels in all disciplines related to kiteboarding (and more!).

Gradually breaking away from the brutal wakestyle, he has created an incomparable old school style. When Micka's on the water, you sit on the beach and watch. As an experienced waterman and discreet person, his style speaks for itself.

STAY OLD SCHOOL.

Mickaël Interview

Can you tell us a bit more about your passion for kitesurfing?
For me, passion has a lot to do with progress. Kiteboarding, with all its disciplines (wake style, old school, strapless freestyle, surf and foil), allows you to keep progressing.

I also love testing new kites and getting them to evolve to perfection. And that's great, because it's my job.

 

You just won the lottery, what would you do first?

I'd travel around the world for a few years.

 

What’s the most amazing thing you’ve experienced?

To become a dad!

 

“ I love testing new kite and getting them to evolve to perfection. ”
What are you doing during a day without wind?

I don't work! I work on my house, do some carpentry, gardeing, I cut down my trees…
