Describe yourself in a few sentences.
I am a paddleboard passionate – it is a sport that I have been practicing for several years now in Quebec, being able to surf the waves. I partake in several competitions every year, mainly in Hawaii and Japan. I have been deaf since birth. I have had the pleasure of surfing in many different countries, notably in Australia. Having lived in Hawaii for a year, I split my time between Hawaii and Quebec to visit friends over there.
When you are not on the water, what do you like to do?
I often snowboard. I also meditate every day. When the temperature permits, I like to meditate at the bottom of the waterfalls next to my house. I also train through different methods: running, fitness, biking, etc.
What is your favorite paddleboard spot?
My favorite spot is on Maui Island. There are a lot of people that practice SUP over there. It is a calm place and the waves are perfect for SUP surf.
What is your preferred Taiga Board?
I use the paddleboard Racer 14’0. I love the speed of this board, it always impresses me during competitions. It allows me to participate in several competitions, such as Molokai2Oahu, SUP Japan Cup and California Cup. When the wind is strong on Lac Brome, I love chasing the waves and confronting the winds to exercise my strength.
If you could choose your dream spot to practice SUP, where would it be?
My dream is to paddleboard on the Okinawa Islands. It is a mini paradise! I would also love to practice SUP in Tahiti.
