About:

With the age of 5 years Alice moved with her parents to the Windsurf Town Wissant in the north west of France. Her Dad introduced Alice and her brothers into all kind of water sports when she was about 10 years old. Focussing on the Slalom discipline for the first couple of years, Alice was french champion already with the age of 14. With 16 she started competing on the PWA Tour and quickly stepped on the podium. In recent years she moved her focus more and more into the waves and crowned her passion with being third in the world in 2014. Alice joined our team in 2011 and shows her style not only in competitions, but also in several shootings on and off the water. Always with a great smile!

Move you’re most proud of:

When I'm windsurfing and doing some moves, that makes me proud every time!

Worst wipeout:

My first Frontloop crashes!

Number one on your bucket list:

Hm, this is not really for me, and it's a bit trite, but peace on earth is what I want above all.

Soundtrack of your life:

1. Pharrell Willliams - Happy (This is my wake up song, nothing better to start a good day!)

2. Lana Del Rey - Summertime Sadness (My little heart's end of day song)

3. Beyoncé feat Jay-Z - Drunk in Love (I put this song on with my girlfriends before leaving for a party)

I love...

...to live day by day, enjoying everything with those I love.

For the perfect Windsurfing day there has to be...

...sunny, windy, beautiful waves, at home with my family, my friends and windsurfing till the sun sets!

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

I would be a lion. They appear gentle and docile but still have a big character... just like me:-)

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

I would love to travel through time, live a little each time. I think every time must be fascinating to discover, and if I could change some past mistakes to make the world more beautiful, that would be the best!

Which sizes of the Quad do you ride and do you have any special setup tips for girls?

I use 69, 75 & 81 – mostly the 75, my sail range goes from 4.7 to 3.4 north hero. I place my straps in the middle positions, but for smaller girls i would recommend to move the front strap further back to get a closer stance. I use about 0.5-1cm smaller fins compared to the production fins, but you can also move the production fins a little forward to get a similar effect of a more loose feeling. I place the mast base a little behind the middle.
