About myself:

I'm 24 years old, i grew up in Six-Fours in the south of France. By the age of 6 i tried windsurfing for the first time with my dad in front of his surfschool in le Brusc and i remember that i didn't like it so much. Later when i tried it again, i loved it so much, spent my entire summer on the beach at the surfschool with all the other kids. We were a nice group of kids and together we got into Freestyle, as the spot was really good for that discipline. From that moment i never stopped windsurfing.
I had my first competition experience in Sardega when i was 17, for the european youth freestyle championship. By the age of 21 i decided to live 100 % windsurfing !
Now i'm following the PWA Freestyle world tour and beside the competitions i'm working at my windsurfschool in Six-Fours, wich i got from my father. I try to get as many people into this sport as possible!
My goal in competition is quite simple : train hard and go as far as i can.

I hate...

...angry persons.

If you could be an animal, what would it be?

A cat I think and chill all day - or a bird maybe☺?

If you could choose a superpower, what would it be?

Teleportation for sure! Then I can sail everywhere whenever I want.

Where do you place Straps, Fin and Mastfoot on your Skate?

I place my mast foot further back from the middle of the track, it's easier to duck the sail and a better control on my board.
I like when the straps are tight, you really need a good grip when you do freestyle. For the frontstraps, at the back plug i screw the straps forward and backward for the front outside plug, like this the frontstraps looks a bit more to the back and it helps a lot for switchstance and are tightened. For the backstraps, i place it closer to the tail to have a better pop and control during sliding moves.

Do you change these settings in different conditions?

I do not change the settings when the conditions change, my settings are the same on all my freestyle boards. Actually, once i feel i've got the right settings i keep them as they are :)
But i do change boards and fins. I use bigger fins now to have more speed and grip, which is essential for all the new freestyle air moves. My smallest fin is a 17cm wich i use in strong winds and the biggest is a 19cm for the lighter winds ( usually with my Skate 100). I also use different fins if it's flat, choppy or wavey. I would use a bigger fin in the chop compared to a completely flat spot.

Which moves are you working on?

When the conditions are suitable i'm trying a lot of Shiftys. It's really hard to control, i like the feeling in the air and there is already some new possible combinations of this move :)
I'm working as well on all the new air moves and double air moves! Still some work ahead to do !!
