What's your favorite trick?  

Getting barreled, still working on it!

How did you get into kiteboarding?

I learnt to kite when I was 8, with my dad who is passionate about water sports. I started surfing at the age of 5 but I had to stop for a while because of the shark crisis on La Reunion. 

What motivated you to become a professional athlete?

I'm still at school but participating at a GKA event definitely inspired me to push myself and pursue a professional career! Keahi de Aboitiz and John John Florence are also a big inspiration for me!

What is #LiveFreeRideFree for you?

Being connected with the ocean. I always feel good in the water doing all kinds of surf sports, kiting sup, foil, windsurf... and I can't wait to try wingsurfing.

Your motto?

Enjoy the ocean at the fullest!
