stay salty

Mickaël
Fernandez

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

Slowly going 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.
Highly skilled watermen and a very discrete guy, his riding does the talking.

STAY OLD SCHOOL.

Mickaël Interview

Can you tell us a bit more about your passion for kitesurfing?
For me the passion is a lot in the progression. Kite with all this discipline (wake style, old shool, freestyle strapless, surf and foil) alows to have Always progression.
 
I also love testing new kite and evolving them to perfection. And that's good because it's my job.

 

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

I go around the world for a few years.

 

Next destination?

For F-one shooting, but I Don't know where and I think nobody knows!

“ I love testing new kite and evolving them to perfection. ”
What’s the most amazing thing you’ve experienced?

To have baby!

 

What are you doing during a day without wind?

I Don't work! I work at home (wood work, I cut my trees…).
