Interview

How did you get into Kiting?

First, I started windsurfing at 6 years old with my parents when I move from Paris to Leucate. Then from my 8 years old to 11, I pilot a small 2,5 m kite. When I was 11 years old my parents buy me my first kite and I start taking lessons with my mom kite.

What’s the one thing you can’t live without?

For sure Kiteboarding.

What’s in your backpack when traveling?

My camera, my MacBook for edit, one go pro, Airpordfor good music and always some papers for works on a project.

Favorite Movie?

I think my favorite movie is Pearl Harbor.

Top five songs on your latest playlist?

1 – “Le monde a change” Caballero & jeanjass,

2 – “Adieux les filles” Orelsan

3 – “Mirror” Hippie Sabotage

4 – “Can’t spot” Red Hot Chili peppers

5 – “Life” Ludovico Einaudi – This is the song I use to listening before all my heat during competition

Favorite post session beverage?

A good beer with all my friends

Favorite post session food?

Depends on the vibe but I think the BBQ on the beach with friends is by far the best

You’re planning your dream trip, where are you going and who’s coming with?

I think my dream trip will be Hawaii, I would love to bring all my families and, my girlfriend. For kitesurfing, surf, SUP, amazing landscape and I think best sunset ever.

Favorite thing to do when not you’re not kiting?

I think it’s surfing if I could kite & surf every day

What, in your opinion, has been your greatest accomplishment?

My comeback after my injury. I never get injured during my life. I get a small left knee injury in 2016 but the injury and surgery on my right knee in 2018 was a different level. After 8 months of rehab and get my place into the 24th best freestyle rider in the world and performed well. That was a really good feeling
