You have previously run some girls only windsurfing camps. Do you have plans to do this again in 2021? Why do you think it is important to have girls only camps?
Yes, I will continue to do it. Last year, once a week we had a girls’ afternoon. It was really nice with lot of girls of different ages. Super young and older, but only good vibes every time. I also did it in open water, so a lot of girls were super happy to sail safely with the offshore wind that they are not used to. Besides the girls only, I will do other camps, but I think it is super nice sometimes to do it, as it’s creating a really friendly atmosphere. The next one is planned before DEFI WIND 2021. Fingers crossed!
Aside from the windsurfing school, 2020 saw everyone have some downtime. What do you do when you are not training? What is your favourite series on Netflix?
When I am not training, I like to see my friends, I think in 2020 I took more time to do it as I was more at home. My favourite series right know is the “Handmaids Tales” - not a funny story but so true.
Did you find any new hobbies, activities or places in 2020?
Not really new hobbies, but I biked more as we could not go on the water for few months, and I really enjoyed it.
Where do you want to be in 5 years?
I don’t really have a plan in my head. Five years ago, I was still working as engineer in an office. Back then I could not have imagined that I will be a professional windsurfer and open a windsurfing school. But, I would like to find a good life balance, with working from my centre/beach place for the long season in France, and then going abroad and enjoying windsurfing life and so on in the winter... maybe with my kids J Could be a good plan?
Any further motto or statement you want to share with us?
Try to do what you love, as much as you can!
