What is your favorite kite?
For each discipline it’s different. For big air the 8m Pivot S26 has an insane and easy fly and for freestyle the Dash 9m S26 gives a nice slack and stability.  

What is your favorite kitespot?
My favorite kite spot in freestyle is El Gouna in Egypt and for big air Les Dosses in Le Barcares in south of France. 

What is your local Kite-spot?
My local favorite kite spot is Plage Sud Port Camargue where you can do freestyle in light wind and big air in strong wind with always flat water and clean wind. 

What is your ultimate goal to achieve?
I just would like to kite and progress a lot, compete and perform as much as possible with just one idea in my mind: enjoy and share my passion with others. 

What are your hobbies besides kiteboarding?
Besides kitesurf I love all sliding sports, I do skateboarding, skiing, wakeboarding. When I can’t do sports when I’m at home I like to ascape and recharge myself by practicting art, painting, drawing and graffiti.

What is your favorite trick?
This is also different for each discipline. In big air it is late back. I really love the feeling. As for freestyle, it is heart attack and the hingerburger mobe 5. 

Which rider do you look up to?
I loop up at a lot of French riders who are my friends and with whom I ride on my spot in the south of France: Louka Pitot, Edgar Ulrich and Arthur Guillebert. But for me the best rider of all is Liam Whaley.
