When and where did you start Wing Foiling? In 2020, my uncle Jérôme made me try Wing Foiling in Guadeloupe and I immediately loved it!

What’s your watersports history – from which side did you enter Winging? First, I have learned surfing, windsurfing and sailing with my Dad, Sebastien at the age of 5. I participated very early in sailing competitions, optimist and windsurf between an age of 6 and 10, and afterwards started also surfing competitions. Now, on the island we live - depending on the condition -, I ride all year round either on a Wing Foil or on a Surf Foil.

What do you love about Wing Foiling? I love the "flying over water feeling" and surfing waves, trying to do radical tricks and airs with foil! I love trying new freestyle tricks. When I learned the backflip I tinkered with a long leash to practice without tearing my wing. Otherwise I love beating my father in racing (and all the other members of my family!:-))

What’s your favourite conditions? When the wind is strong with about 25 knots side off with big waves and I can ride with 2,5 wing.

What’s your top advice for a beginner? Use suitable equipment like a large wing board. My grand father Adrien started to Wing Foil at the age of 73 and he managed to fly quickly. Everyone can do it!
