About:

Born in the south of France between Leucate and Gruissan, Pierre grew up in the wind, in the strong wind… With around 5-6 years he began sailing, first in a boat at the local sailing club, but the strong winds made him try windsurfing and from that moment it was hard to get him off the board. Often the coach of the sailing club had to take him out of the water for lunch and to rest a little bit. Pierre always liked the competition, so he quickly took part at all the local races and the national youth events. His first Slalom World Cup was in Costa Brava in 2007 and he finished in the top 15 straight away… In 2011 he did his first full year on the PWA Tour, improving his ranking year by year, finishing with his first overall Podium in 2014. In 2015 Pierre was one of the standout sailors of the season, winning the legendary DEFI WIND, the PWA Worldcup in Turkey and sitting currently in 3rd place, still with a chance to catch his first world title on the last event in New Caledonia.

Move you’re most proud of:

A perfect Race Jibe in front of the World Cup pack …

Worst wipeout:

Big catapult in more than 40kts on the nice chop of Fuerteventura.

Number one on your bucket list:

To be World Champ one day!

Soundtrack of your life:

1. Etienne de Crécy - Funk …. I had this song in the my head when i win the DEFI WIND ! you need to have something blasting in your head to be 150% during a 40km run

2. Hans Zimmer - Gladiator theme ….. I really like all the music and song this compositor made for so much good films - perfect to relax

3. NASA - Gifted . I use this song for a nice video of strong wind slalom ! perfect to enter super motivated on the water

I love...

...to be back home after a nice windsurf trip and eat perfect french beef with some cheese and nice glass of red french wine.

As a superhero I would...

...control the elements to choose the conditions I want when I need it.

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

I would like to be an elephant to be sure to not open my sail when the gust come!

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

If I can choose a superpower, for sure I'd directly choose « teleportation » to travel all around the world with all my bags easily!

What's the Falcon Sizes you ride and which are the sail sizes you use on each of them?

For the World Cup i use the Falcon 99 / 111 / 138 . The Small one works with 5.2 / 6.3 / 7.0 , the medium with 7.0 / 7.7 / 8.4 and the big one with my 8.4 and my incredible 9.0

Which fins do you use?

I use different style of fins as our board accept most of them, from 32 to 35 on the 99 / 36 to 40 on the 111 / 44 to 47 on the 138

Do you have any trim tips for Flatwater and for more choppy conditions?

Concerning the board, i don’t really adjust my tuning. I just move my my mast foot slightly forward when it begins to be super choppy and sometimes i move my front footstrap a little bit forward aswell. The boards are pretty efficient in most of the conditions so when i find the right tuning it’s almost ok for all the conditions.
