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, 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
