Hi everyone, I'm from South Brittany. I really love the ocean. I am practicing windsurfing since I'm 9. I’m vice world champion on Kona Windsurfing sport. Also, I really love to do surf, surfskating, and SUP. But now, I'm really focused on Wing foiling sport! Foiling is literally a sick feeling. Flying over the water, you can do what you want with a wingfoil gear. Cruising, freestyle, Going in waves, or just some surf foiling! Love it. Stay connected! ✌️
