Describe yourself in a few sentences.

I am currently combining my two greatest passions through my work: photography and the outdoors. I am constantly on the road, and I therefore always bring my boards along with me in order to drop them into any new waters that I may come across. Since a very young age, I have been a fish in the water. Oceans, lakes, rivers are essential to my spirit and body’s well-being, which is why paddleboarding allows me to take in all the beauty of this nature. 

When you are not on the water, what do you like to do?

If you can’t find me on the water, I am probably in the water. Haha. No joke though, I am for sure either in the ocean or mountains, whether I am on the road, camping or even in the city. I am outdoors as much as possible, as nature is the central focus of my inspiration. 

What is your favorite paddleboard spot?

There are too many amazing spots in Quebec for me to choose just one, but my favorite region to paddleboard is in Gaspésie. There are so many different bodies of water to paddle on. The Bonaventure river with its crystal clear water, the Baie-des-Chaleurs, ForillonParc with its seals…Gaspésie is an exceptionally beautiful place! 

What is your preferred Taiga Board?

My choice is definitely limited to hard boards. I have a soft spot for the Hana 9’5 for its maneuverability and sexiness! I can also surf with it from time to time when the opportunity presents itself. I also love the Borea for its ‘Longboard’ effect and its glide on the water. 

If you could choose your dream spot to practice SUP, where would it be? 

Antarctica!! Yes, I love the heat, but paddling through the glaciers in Antarctica is one of my dreams. Imagine paddling with the walruses, belugas, seals, and penguins or even next to a polar bear.
