Wave Vice World Champion 2011 (KSP), French Champion since 2012
One Eye, Mauritius
Favourite thing about competing on tour?:
Sharing the waves with other girls and trying to improve my skills in competition makes me push my own limits more and more!
Standout moment 2017:
I have two! Being able to ride Ponta Preta and having such an amazing comp in Dakhla with all the girls with amazing vibes.
Favourite competitors to ride against and watch:
I love riding against my friend Odile Cavin, even as competitors we always motivate each other to go further and give our best and always with a big smile. I'm inspired by Moona’s smooth and natural surfing style and also by Jalou’s power when she hits the waves. My goal is trying to improve to have a mixture of both styles.
Reaching the podium, riding some different waves and having some great experiences!
How do you train?:
We don't get great waves where I live so I will often travel to a location before the event as the best way to train is on the wave you will compete on. I also go SUPing in the waves and ride my Carver skateboard too!
