Winter in Hot Water part 2

As promised, this is the second part of my awesome winter ! First I went to Martinique, a french island into the caribbean sea, for the FISE Academy. In the second part of my travel I went to Guadeloupe, another beautiful caribbean island. Conditions were not really consistent, and I trained less than I was expecting, but anyway, this was a perfect winter and I hope you will enjoy it :  https://vimeo.com/102211609

FISE Academy Caraïbes : 10 crazy days in Martinique !

The year begun pretty good for me, I was invited in Martinique for the starting of a new kite school, FISE Academy Caraïbes. I’ve never been in this french island before, that’s actually a pity, cause it’s a beautiful place and the wind didn’t stop blowing since I’m here.

With my friends and pro riders Charlotte Consorti, Alex Caizergues, Cesar Portas and Marie Desandre Navarre, we spent 10 crazy days in the most beautiful house of the island, Domaine des fonds blancs. We were there for promoting the island as a great kite spot, so we were filming and photo shooting every day with the french star, José Garcia.

We discovered every spots of Martinique (Cap Est, Cap Chevalier, Vauclin, Bassine de Joséphine…), and it’s amazing how you can enjoy wave riding, free riding and free styling in the same place.

You will know everything about this trip in the next Stance Magazine issue, and on a french TV report as well… But no worries, I will let you know !

Meanwhile, you can have a look on my Facebook page, where I posted a lot of pics : https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.594602613965746.1073741834.318965321529478&type=1

2nd place at the Wake Air Contest

For the second year I took part to the Wake Air Contest in the South of France. Some of the best french kiteboarders and wakeboarders were there, as my good friend, the world champion speed, Charlotte Consorti.

About the contest, it’s easy, all the riders had to make a team with one wakeboarder and one kiteboarder. Each of them had to compete in their speciality. Unfortunately, as there was just no wind, all the kiteboarders made the contest in wakeboarder, that’s actually was pretty funny !
