Born in Nice in France , I raised in the back country of the beautiful French Riviera. I started skateboarding at 10 years Young. At 17, I started to travel around Europe for tours and events, being on Magazine. I always wanted to live in California and be with the best skateboarder in the world. Since October 2013, I’m living that dream and enjoying my job as a Professional skateboarder in San Diego.
I ride the same board on all terrains (Downhill, street, big air, backyard pool, vert, …). I always
I’m not that much into Contest, I go for fun, I’m more into « Freeriding ». I did différents trip with my sponsors, I participate on évents I won, but I don’t remember all of them lol.
- 2003: 5th place on European Downhill Championship (junior)
- 2010: 1st Place at the 1st Big Air event in Europe
- 2012: 5th place on Vertramp French cup
I’d like to show to people that even if my board is bigger than a regular skateboard, it’s still skateboarding. I’d like to show people that you can ride everything with the same board. Just want to be recognized as some one who is creative, and brought something in the skateboarding scene.
I would say having my Athlete Visa and living the life I’m living. Be on magazines, ads, and catalogs. Dude, I’m from a small town in France (5000 people lived there when I was Young). And be where I am today was a challenge.
There’s a lot of people, and be picked up is not that easy, everybody wants to be the best. More, It’s hard to see kids coming in the scene and kill everything (14years Young for the winners of X-Games this year), A 10 years Young kid (Asher) made a 900, he’s only 10 ! Deal with them is hard, but make you want to get more and go further.
Making new tricks, meeting new people and be recognized is really satisfying.
I warm up with tricks I know, and then focus on new tricks, and keep doing until I made them. Being healthy, workout, stretching helps a lot.
My homies in France are my biggest fans for sure, they are stoked about where I pushed myself, we grow up together, and I’m living my dream. They always support me, no matter what.
My plans are to keep doing what I do, and go further, I still have many goals to accomplish!
