aboutI am born in 1996 on France and shortly after that we went to live in Tahiti with my parents and brother on our sailing catamaran. At 6 years old, we moved to New Caledonia (still on our boat) and we set there.
I’ve discovered the joy of sailing my own little optimist when I arrived in NC, and I began windsurfing at 10 years old. I get addicted immediately and I shortly began to compete in both Techno Class and slalom. I’ve done this two disciplines (Olympic and Slalom) and I definitely spotted RSX because I was getting to heavy in 2015... And then I fully switched to slalom ! And now from 2017, I’m sailing more and more in foil !
Since 2018, I am sailing with the Tabou Gaastra team and as I am now living in the south of France for my engineering studies, I test with Cedric the sails and board prototypes for the upcoming years !
