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.
TEAM FANATIC SINCE...
Worst Wipeout ?
I think one of the most impressive wipeout I had was the famous crash with Taty Frans during a PWA Slalom Final in Fuerte in 2017. We were going 35kts with hardcore condition in nearly 50knots and we hit each other super strong. Lucky me I was safe and he injured himself. Not an amazing memory …I prefer to think about a big crash in Hookipa with 1,5 mast high wave which means a long swim ahead.
