Brief Biography & Description of Yourself?

I have always been addicted to adrenaline sports. I obtained good result at national level in giant and downhill skiing after spending time at Bourg saint Maurice, in the south east of France. When I was 14, my windsurfing instructor introduced me to kitesurfing and I spent the next few years practising. I was asked to take part in kitesurf competitions but after years of skiing comps, I didn’t really want to do that. Instead I concentrated on my other passion of art and costume design. I also learnt to weld. In 2014 I tried speed kiting and came 3rd in the Sosh cup, Mondial du Vent. With just 6 months of training I managed to beat Charlotte Consorti and won the little of Champion of France in 2014. In early 2015, I realised my max speed of 49.27 and I finished 2nd in the Sosh cup, Mondial du Vent, not to far behind the winner. Currently I’m training in big air, old school and strapless for potential competition and artistic level.

Favourite spot: I don’t have a favourite spot; what I like about kitesurfing is that the playground is always changing.

Best session: In the big waves in Portugal and Morocco.

Achievements so far:

4 x French Junior Championship in Sking

2014 - French Kite Speed Champion

2014 - 3rd at the Sosh Cup Kitesurf Speed Mondial du Vent

2015 - 2nd at the Sosh Cup Kitesurf Speed Mondial du Vent

What are your goals? I want to progress in kitesurfing, in speed, in old school, in strapless and in new school. I also want to attempt the women’s speed record in Namibia. And so much more………

Favourite:

Food: Good food, food of Lyon, lobster, good meat

Music: I like everything

Film: Fantastic films, old films, comedy, well made films,

Who would you most like to meet, past or present and why? Each meeting is important to me, it’s what makes you grow.

Which period of history would you like to experience? There are two things I’d like to experience: I would have loved to be a pirate on Barbarossa’s (Red Beard’s) ship. I would have also liked to experience living with Red Indians. It’s a more natural period, a community that helps each other. Unlike the way we live; humans want too much evolution.

If you won the lottery what would you buy first? I’d buy a big boat, kidnap my friends and go travelling. Then I’d share the rest of the money to help people and animals who need it.

If you could have or do anything in the world, what would it be? Live in a sail boat, see other cultures

What would you do if you got the 4min warning? For those of you who don’t know; it’s the siren that is supposed to go off 4 minutes before nuclear bombs destroy the world! It depends on the situation but if the explosion creates a gigantic wave, I’ll kite the big wave for the last time whilst singing.

What colour Smartie would you be? Blue
