Can you tell us a bit more about your passion for Surfing?
I deeply enjoy spending time in nature and feeling surrounded by this unmanageable force, whereas I tend to try to master everything.
You just won the lottery, what would you do first?
For that I would have to play. 🙂
For me I am a winner every day, I am happy to live fully my path towards goals that I’m passionate about.
Otherwise, if one day I really win something like this, I’d like to make a move for the planet and future generations.
Next destination? Tahiti to go visiting my brother who has been living there for a few years and of course to discover the wave of Teahupoo!
What’s the most amazing thing you’ve experienced?
In the sense of incredible, in Nazare, I got swept into a whirlpool in the open sea, after coming out of a wave in front of Fred’s eyes. I sank with my board very quickly and very deep and then the ocean released me and fortunately there was no waves following and Fred was there to pick me up. It was hard to believe what happened.
What are you doing during a day without wave?
I’m training to be ready when there are! Being in the ocean is always a pleasure.
Otherwise, I spend time with Fred on the computer, working on future projects.
We have our Youtube channel that keeps us very busy and it’s really a project that motivates us.
