I experienced kiting and fell in love with the feeling of freedom and for constant connection with nature. I immediately realized that it was an opportunity to be caught on the fly, and I did not waste time. After taking my first basic course, I went abroad to practice and improve my expertise. So I spent months full of positive but also difficult moments since I was often far from the people I cared about. Nevertheless, I didn’t want to give up halfway. Therefore I continued to train tenaciously until I felt comfortable with a kite in my hands. At that moment I realized that I was ready, I applied for the DEJEPS, the French state diploma. A year of apprenticeship, practice and several tests to pass. A real challenge that I have overcome very proudly.
During the diploma I have worked with the best international coaches and riders, and it has been very motivating. It was also thanks to this experience that I was able to grow and succeed as an instructor. As a result I am proud to have worked for various structures during these last years, both associations and private schools, in different countries. Here is a list:
- Ride Academy by Seb Garat
- Junglekite School
- Kitesurf Leucate KSL
- Tiki Center
- Ucpa Port Barcarés
and that’s not all..
The funny thing is that working for a former world champion like Sebastien Garat, I often had to support and supervise some of the most talented young international athletes, such as his brother Valentin Garat and Arthur Guillbert… and sometimes I wonder who the student really is, ahah ?!
The diploma I achieved allows me to train any kind of athlete, and accompany him during competitions. Unlike the course as an instructor, my diploma is largely focused on the role of coach. Being a polyvalent athlete, I have developed skills in all disciplines of kitesurfing to provide the best coaching to my students.

Besides teaching, I like to write..
I’m passionate about kiting and being very close with high level athletes I followed live their competitions, their lifestyle and discovered some of their hacks. Wherefore I started to write various articles about kitesurfing world that I share on my website. In addition, I have been working with some of the most important online kite magazines.
Life is only one and it is yours. It has been given to you to live it, shape it and play it as you wish. But remember to do not waste it because nobody will give it back to you!
In order to achieve my goals I can rely on the support of Duotone Kiteboarding France, with whom I have an agreement for my equipment, and some brands that support me.
