I started surfing when I was very young, born and raised in Guadeloupe, it was a way to have fun in the water with all my friends, and we all got addicted very quickly.
Always curious to try new supports, it is thus, during winter 2017 that I test for the first time the foil. Then, during the winter of 2019, my brother brought back to Guadeloupe a wing bought at "kai lenny". From the first run I understood the full potential of the wing and foil combination. I immediately said to myself: "it's like doing tow-in surfing with a foil, but I don't need a jet ski anymore, I'm free !
I'm passionate about board sports and I've done a lot of skateboarding, rollerblading and snowboarding. I discovered kiteboarding on the lake of Naussac in Lozere in 2000, where I continued to practice in the region of Montpellier.
In 2009 I decided to make a living out of my passion. I created my kitesurfing school more than 10 years ago in Brazil, kitexperiment. My school is specialized in downwind trips on more than 500 km of litoral, and improvement courses. With the evolution of the sport I practice in parallel the wingfoil.
I've always liked to slide whether it was with a snowboard, skis, skateboard...I start kitesurfing with my father at Dakhla and since then I can't do without it. I started in twin-tip, then I quickly switched to strapless, a discipline where I felt freer, where I could play with the waves as if I were surfing.
Recently I realised that I don't just want to kite, I just want to be in the water. So I try to vary the pleasures with surfing, foil surfing, sup, wing, wake surf... All these disciplines come together and help me to improve my style and mindset, I am not just a kiteboarder but a waterman.
Riding strapless with my wife and my 17 and 20 year old children, now busy and passionate exploring the windy spots of the earth. Cannes, Corsica, Vietnam, Mauritius, Brazil and many others.
We are all strapless. Waves and freestyle is the program for the boys, wave and freeride for the lady...
As a child of the sea, I very quickly practised water sports thanks to the various water sports clubs in Brittany.
Dinghies, catamaran, Funboard, then surfing of course! As a jack of all trades, I have combined my two main passions, surfing and kiteboarding, to optimise my time on the water. I've been sailing since 2006 and I'm specialised in surfkiting and strapless freestyle activities.
Finally, I like to pass on my passion for surfing to my students, either through the national education system or through the federation.
My first board was a windsurfing board, a Big one, I was 12 years old. Since 2000 I do kitesurf. At the beginning with twin-tip for the air and then with surf and strapless for waveriding. I'm kitesurfing most of the Time in Wissant, best wave spot in the North and the others betwen belgium and Boulogne.
I'm sport teacher, so a lot of Time on the beach when good forecasts all the year, long Time of holidays..I'm really in love for long Time with a lot of supports ! Now it will be the same passions for my childrens...flying surfing turning
20 years old in my mind … plus 30 years’s experience on all kind of boards : windsurfing in the early 80’s, kitesurfing since 1998, 1st contact with a foil in 2004, wingfoiling and supfoiling for two years and spreading the strapless riding all over the world through straplesskitesurfing.com in the last two decades.
I hate having to compete, I think it runs counter to the Aloha Spirit principles. Actually, nothing better than having a good sesh with mates, whatever their support, sharing is caring !
Passionate about board sports for as long as I can remember, I discovered kitesurfing during a trip in 2010 and since then I haven't stopped until I opened my school in Hyères in the south of France.
I do a lot of strapless freestyle and more and more waves. For the last year, I've been doing wing surfing for a long time.
On the water since 40 years now... Since then, I have tried everything I could get my hands on: open board, funboard, lazer 4000, surf, SUP, surfkite or surfwing.
Discovering strapless after an injury, I was able to feel all the sensations of surfing in all conditions. The roots of surfkiting for me is the ultimate search for the best trajectory, timing and energy to achieve the most beautiful tricks. Finding HB Surf reinforced this radical conversion. It was only afterwards that I started surfwing, a complementary discipline when surfking is difficult.
Kitesurfer raised in the tramontane for 20 years, I switched to strapless for about ten years. Mediterranean doesn't often offer the joy of waves, so my practice is mostly oriented towards strapless freestyle, but I don't shy away from wave sessions ! As a good child of the tram', my favourite conditions are when the wind pushes, crushes, ventilates, de-mosquitoes and hustles. In short, when the fight cleans the spot, the Legion takes over!
I like to explore spots in France and abroad with my freestyle quiver and a foil + pocket strapless for light conditions.
